Saturday 17 August 12–6pm

Ceri Hand Gallery will be holding their inaugural annual Summer Fete at the gallery, featuring a spectacular table top sale with original art works for under £250, by over 50 artists.
New sculptures, paintings, drawings, photographs, textiles, ceramics and artists books will adorn table-tops and walls of the gallery,

Artist’s performances will run throughout the day, from Fish Wives – a street fight with real fish and live opera soundtrack (Gemma Marmalade) to a Tombola with melting Iceland prizes (Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau). Sam Keogh will perform as Oscar the Grouch, Ned James and Nathaniel Pitt will set up a production line with his family, creating anarchy badges for six hours straight, before they can go on holiday and Robert Foster will be the artist in stocks for the day.

Artists games will include ‘Guess the weight of the cake’ by Dominic from Luton, who has created a cake in the likeness of gallery owner Ceri Hand; Tarot readings will be provided by John Walter; a ‘Curatorial agony aunt service’, and a ‘CV filler’ Tombola will be provided by ESP and Grand Union and robot races will be run by Juneau Projects. Join in the Lazy Susan painting club with An Endless Supply or take a punt on ‘Leaders of Men’ interactive poster games by Jonathan Kelham.

Refreshments include ‘Teen Horror movie snacks’ by artist Paddy Gould and chef Patrick Hanna; ‘Ice Cold Ingres’ ice lollies by Adrian Dannatt; free Borscht soup by Sam Ayres or pull up a pew for ‘Cake & Alternative Finance’ with Academic/Curator Cecilia Wee.

Sam Venables & Kevin Hunt will park their touring BMW containing a solo show of new work by Calum Crawford outside and the day will conclude with Dominic Mason’s ‘Mega Pinata’ lowered from the ceiling, filled with art works as prizes for the keenest destroyer!
A full programme for the day and images of many of the available table top works are updated online regularly.
