Borders’ first art fair

All artists based in the Borders are being called to join the region’s first ever art fair, to be hosted at Springwood Hall, Kelso, in March.

Organiser Denise Playfair of Kelso’s Vennel Gallery said: “The event shall act as a showcase for the diversity of work available, giving both galleries and individuals the opportunity to purchase and form new links with the makers.”

With approximately 55 different stands available it is hoped that the event shall attract interest from much further afield. A 3x2m space costs £120 for the weekend. Closing date for applications is January 17 but stands shall be allocated on a first come, first served basis (subject to controls).
