Surrey Art Fairs was formed in 2015 when two local artists who met on Twitter teamed up to organise affordable art fairs in Surrey – affordable for both artists and art collectors.
Producing vibrant contemporary art from their home studios, both had been searching for new avenues to display their art work. Initially putting on several events at TEA in Reigate they decided to continue their success by finding larger venues and inviting other artists to join them.
Their first exhibition was at Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking featuring the work of eight local contemporary artists with a variety of styles and themes. All the work was held together with one common thread – affordability and accessibility.
