ABOUT THIS FAIR:

The summer Art & Antiques for Everyone fair takes place at National Exhibition Centre from 19–22 July 2018. The largest vetted art, antiques and interiors fair outside London, it is an international hub for antique collectors, connoisseurs, dealers, interior decorators and more recently anyone interested in C20th design, Mid Century Modern and contemporary art and sculpture.

Followers of the fair, which began in 1986, will notice a change of title – ‘Art’ has been included in the title in recognition of the increasing number of leading specialist art and sculpture dealers who are regular exhibitors.

The fair is also popular with interior decorators, a fact further reflected in the title. Fair Director Mary Claire Boyd explains: "More specialist art collectors, dealers and interior decorators than ever are coming to buy and sell and we considered the time is right to recognise this change in our title. Of course, regular antique collectors will find no fewer traditional antiques specialists, in addition to the many dealers with 20th century pieces that are so increasingly sought after too."

Expect to see traditional antique furniture, Asian works of art, the Decorative Arts, British and European paintings and 20th century designer pieces in Secton 1 while Section 2 is a prime sourcing marketplace for Scandinavian furniture, glass and ceramics, vintage jewellery, textiles, the earliest English pottery, porcelain, folk art, antiquarian maps and prints.
 
New for 2018 is the Weekend Collective, open Saturday & Sunday only, a showcase mix of dealers in a table-top section with a wide selection of antique and decorative pieces. Weekend Collective will be vetted to ensure correct labelling, authenticity, quality and good condition.

Among many specialist dealers there will be Hickmet Fine Art, London, with Art Deco and Art Nouveau bronze sculpture and glass; Jeroen Markies, specialising in furniture, bronzes and lighting; ArtDecoArt has original French prints from £25, fine clocks and silver; Solo Antiques offer Art Nouveau and Art Deco bronze sculpture and glass; and James Strang shows an esoteric display of rare Scottish Arts & Crafts, furniture, glass and pictures. Morgan Strickland Decorative Art showcases Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau silver; DecoDave shows lighting and ceramics; Shine on Design with Art Deco furniture and lighting and Andrew Muir, showing Clarice Cliff, Moorcroft and Italian studio pottery.
