Get your East Anglian art fix at the inaugural Cambridge Art Fair held at the University Arms

Cambridge’s historic hotel will host a fair between the 23 and the 26 February celebrating the best of East Anglia.

The ballroom of Cambridge’s University Arms will once more be transformed into an art installation between the 23 and 26 February following the success of last year’s summer pop up. The theme is much the same, honouring the historic hotel’s location by presenting artists and subjects exclusively from East Anglia – may your tastes be for ‘painter gardeners’, more contemporary art, prints or ceramics.

Set in the heart of the city, the hotel has invited four specialist art galleries, Skymeadow Gallery, artEast and Nichola Holloway Fine Art and Ramsay Prints to showcase their works, with over 100 priced between £500 and £50,000 that will be on sale including an installation from Cambridge Art School.

The event will kick off with Frances Segelman (Lady Petchey) live sculpting Sir Simon Baron Cohen, a British clinical psychologist and professor of developmental psychopathology at the University of Cambridge, before a live audience ro raise awareness for Blue Smile, a Cambridge-based children’s charity. Sir Simon is among a roster of high-ranking subjects for Lady Petchey who has sculpted everyone from the Queen to the Countess of Wessex via John Profumo and Dame Joan Collins before a crowd.
