Kicking off 2024: Art Karlsruhe and Affordable Art Fair Battersea Spring

In typical Capital Culture fashion, our art fair calendar is brimming with events. So far this year, we have showcased our exhibits at Art Karlsruhe (GER) and Affordable Art Fair Battersea, Spring (UK). However, our schedule is far from complete; we are gearing up to participate in Affordable Art Fairs in NYC (USA), Hampstead (UK), and Austin, Texas (USA) in the next few months.

Art Karlsruhe 2024

We realised it was our 7th year attending Art Karlsruhe. Being part of such an established and reputable show in Europe is a source of immense pride for us. Not even Brexit deters us from making the trip across the border in our van. This year’s Art Karlsruhe was particularly exciting, as the fair was under the new leadership of Director Kristian Jarmuschek. To the delight of many of our friends and visitors, this change brought a refreshing feel to the setup and overall atmosphere of the fair, which as an exhibiting Gallery we really appreciate. As always, the fair curated a selection of the most exciting and fashionable contemporary, classic, and modern art, perfectly aligning with our vibe. 

Our resident German Artist Nando Kallweit is one of our most popular artists at the fair. He creates beautifully elegant bronze sculptures ranging from figurines that could fit in the palm of your hand, to life size statement pieces.

 

 

AAF Battersea Spring 2024

Upon returning to England, we had only a brief pause before we were hitting the road again, back down to London for AAF Battersea Spring Fair.

This marked our 19th year exhibiting at the fair, which, aside from making us feel a little old, was also incredibly humbling. This particular fair holds a special place in our hearts as one of our favourites closer to home. We relish the opportunity to collaborate with an organisation committed to making art accessible to everyone and anyone. The connections we’ve forged with fellow gallerists, friends, and clients over the years serve as a powerful incentive, drawing us back to the event and reinforcing why we are passionate about the work we do.

We were particularly excited about this fair for many reasons. It felt like the stars had aligned on this one and all our artists got the memo to take things to the next level. While we always aim to showcase our very best and most captivating artworks, this year, we feel we absolutely nailed it, and we’re incredibly proud of the work we got to display. Not only were we acknowledged by various visitors on the stand, various mentions and recognition from critics and interior designers alike reaffirmed what we truly felt.

Our stand featured the very latest and distinctive works by highly decorated artists, Mark Harvey and Gabrielle Poole. New artist with the Gallery Libby Bothway, made her debut and her intricate and detailed ink-on-paper illustrations were a hit. James Sparshatt’s captivating new black and white photographs capturing an authentic Blues culture in Memphis. They beautifully compliment his more recognisable pieces from Lafayette and New Orleans. While Rachael Dalzell showed us why she’s such an expert with colour and texture, as her recognisable floral pieces got a fresh blend of colours.

Both Sparshatt and Dalzell also took with them a small selection of their latest Neo Aluminium and Neo Platinum cuban faces, which were a real hit.
