The Art Car Boot Fair Xmas elves are working hard to ensure that the fabulous venue The Workshop London is overflowing with artworks and wares and plenty of festive spirit! They promise that there will be something for everyone and at a price everyone can afford. If you are looking for something special and original, a gift that will have a lasting impression, come to the Christmas Wrap Party at 26 Lambeth High Street, SE1.
The artists have responded very well to the theme by producing works exclusively for the day – Karen Ashton
You can alight at Vauxhall or Lambeth North (but not the North Pole) and it’s a lovely 7-10 minute walk from either. Book your advance tickets here for a midday start. Tickets will also be available on the door after the advance ticket holder queue has gone in.
An amazing opportunity to win a beautiful hand-embellished one-off version of Kristjana Williams’ ‘Moss Star’ – a new print edition created especially for the Art Car Boot Fair.
Artist Info: Kristjana Williams is an Icelandic artist who works with intricate collage, often overlaying exotic flora and fauna onto cartographic backgrounds. Kristjana also creates fantastical creatures by fusing butterflies, tropical birds and exotic plants. There is a touch of magic to her art and her work has soared in popularity over recent years, with commissions for the likes of British designer Paul Smith and Liberty, installations for hotels and exhibition centres in Shanghai, Hong Kong and at The Shard in London and she recently designed the latest album cover for Coldplay.
The ACBF is very excited to announce their first Flash Sale with a stunning one-off edition by Icelandic artist Kristjana S Williams. Both ‘Moss Star’ and ‘Northern Star’ are editions of 125 at a very special price of just £165! See the Prize Draw above for more information on Kristjana Williams and here’s what she has to say about her inspiration. “For me stars always symbolise navigation, hope, nature and travel – when you look up you can imagine the corners of the world you have not been to yet” – Kristjana Williams
In the spirit of Christmas the fair has secured a glittering array of art from our line-up of artists and will be wrapping them or slipping them into one of our bespoke mailers and the price on each will be a real steal.
The only catch is you won’t know what you’ve got till you open it…OR you could be really brave and gift it to someone without actually opening it. A double Secret Santa.
The fair guarantees that each one is by an ACBF artist, will be a piece that they are producing especially for the Christmas Wrap Party and will be at a discounted special price for the Secret Santa Casino.
AND…. there will be one or two higher value works in the casino for just a tenner!
The’ll have a list of the artists who have work inside the packages and will cross them off as the day goes on….if you’re really lucky you may happen upon one of these beautiful, specially created Star works by rising star Frea Buckler! For 48 hours only at the Art Car Boot Fair page on Vero.
These stellar artworks will go on sale at midday on Sunday 2 December and end at midday on Tuesday 4 December.
