SPECIALIST organisers Oxbridge Fairs have made a change of venue for their third Cambridge Glass Fair. It will be held on Sunday February 15 outside the city at Chilford Hall Vineyard, Linton, which is also the site of fine art printers the Curwen Press.
A selling exhibition of contemporary glass will be a new feature this year with a number of glassmakers, like Allister Malcolm and Patrick Stern, in attendance.
Primavera, the contemporary arts gallery in the centre of Cambridge, will be offering some of the latest work by Peter Layton.
The fair will also feature Continental glass, British glass such as Whitefriars and Monart, and a wide variety of other work from the 18th century onwards.
Organiser Paul Bishop says: “We want the fair to appeal to as wide an audience as possible and we are pleased that both the Contemporary Glass Society and the Glass Association will be represented.”
More than 100 dealers will be exhibiting and they include some of our top specialists. For example, the exhibitors list includes Kensington Church Street dealers Jeannette Hayhurst, who will bring Georgian drinking glasses, and Nigel Benson, who will have a display of Monart, Nazeing and other 20th century art glass.
Admission is £3.
