Breeze Art & Makers Fair 2018
14th -16th September 2018
This autumn sees the launch of the Breeze Art & Makers Fair at West Cornwall’s beautiful TrereifeHouse, an event which will showcase the very best designer-makers and artists in the region, with three days of exhibitions, workshops, talks and demonstrations. Previously known as the Cornwall Design Fair, Breeze will profile the finest luxury craftsmanship and contemporary art, presenting the work of over 45 selected artists and makers, including silversmiths Brett Payne and Fenella Watson, ceramicists Paul Jackson and Richard Phethean, sculptors Richard Holliday and James Eddy, jewellers Emily Nixon and William Blaikie and glass artists Antonia MacGregor and Helen Eastham, and exhibiting collections from twelve of the South West’s leading art galleries, including New Craftsman Gallery, White Space Art, Circle Contemporary, Yew Tree Gallery, Makers Emporium and Guild of Ten.
In addition, the elegant interior of Trereife House will be open to visitors as the backdrop for a special exhibition of contemporary glass. Entitled Glass Glamour and curated by artist Fiaz Elson, the exhibition will showcase the work of makers who specialise in creating bespoke cast or hand-blown pieces to commission.
Outside, the parterre and long border of Trereife’s formal gardens will be the venue for Form and Formality, an exhibition of outdoor sculpture in wood, glass, metal, ceramic and stone, curated by Miranda Leonard; on the green, there will be live Raku firings, while the walled garden will also hostChristian Funnell’s mobile metalwork van, and the event’s Education Marquee, which will offer a programme of design-led workshops and demonstrations, alongside a pop-up café and artisan cake outlet.
In the main exhibition tents, there will be a stylish chill-out lounge, with Prosecco and specialist gins on offer, while in the estate’s courtyard, visitors will find a café and artisan food market offering quality fayre from local producers, alongside food options from the Kernow Forno wood-fired pizza company, and vintage ice cream bar Cecil on Ice.
