Art and antique dealers from across the country will be gathering for the ever-popular annual Buxton Antiques Fair at the Pavilion Gardens, from 18th – 21st May.

Widely regarded as the premier event of its kind in the region, specialist dealers offer plenty for people wanting rare and unusual pieces for their homes. As the emphasis in collecting has changed to acquiring a total look, or particular period style, so dealers have sought to provide suites of furniture and accessories for both old and contemporary interiors. This year, the fair is joined by two dealers whose stock will further broaden the range and appeal of the fair. Modern British and contemporary art specialist Freya Mitton will be showing works by such wellknown artists as Mary Fedden RA, Julian Trevelyan RA, Fred Yates, Fred Cuming RA and Ruskin Spear RA.

Specialising in highly decorative and unusual Mid-Century Modern and Collector’s pieces for modern interiors will be Not Wanted On Voyage, whose stand will be an eye-catching assembly of the bizarre and colourful. Discover 1960’s Italian lighting, chairs decorated with the pages of Playboy or medical trollies refitted as mobile cocktail bars!

‘We aim to offer a wide range of high quality, authenticated antiques and works of art from the past three hundred years,’ explains organizer Sue Ede who took over the fair nine years ago. ‘It’s a four-day event where everything is vetted for quality so our visitors can expect to make purchases safe in the knowledge that they are buying genuine pieces, whether they cost £25 or £25,000.’

Among this year’s many highlights will be the launch of a new luxury version of Wuthering Heights with an accompanying series of original illustrations by Christian Birmingham. Art of the Imagination, exhibitors from Salisbury, have been pioneering high quality, limited edition deluxe versions of literary classics with new illustrations by well-known contemporary artists.
