Bryan Reeves, the Fair’s founder and co-organiser says of this year’s event: “It’s exciting we can now host so many more exhibitors in our Mall Galleries venue. We’ve also planned a series of talks and lectures: visitors are keen to acquire a more in-depth knowledge and understanding of the cultures that created many of the works offered for sale, and our exhibitors love to share their knowledge.”
