“This fair is quite an assault on the senses, but in an extremely stimulating and positive way. To see so many sculptures in one area representing so many different media and styles is very rare and has proven extremely popular, consistently attracting a large crowd of artists, art collectors, art enthusiasts and media alike”, Craig Mark The Melrose Gallery director says.

So, don’t miss this exhilarating and eclectic sculpture fair. It truly is a one-of-a-kind art experience. Plus, entrance is free! We’ll see you there.
