So here we are, the tinsel is packed away, 2018 has started with high energy, and we here at The Amazing Blog are raring to go and soak up something new and vibrant. Just as well then that the annual London Art Fair  opens it doors on the 17th January, and keeps them open for all us culture vultures until the 21st - book your tickets before the 15th January and you get 40% off … now let’s keep that queue orderly shall we?

Whatever your taste in Contemporary Art, there will be something here for everyone - check out Beaux Arts Bath on Stand G20 for some seriously intriguing work, or Charlie Smith London on Stand 38A for selection of something a little darker. We will be making a bee line for Galerie Olivier Waltman  on Stand G06, as they are showing some seriously delicious pieces, and with a base in both Miami and Paris - what’s not to love?

Of course alongside all the fabulous art on show, being situated at The Business Design Centre in Islington, also means a plethora of choice in restaurants and bars in the surrounding area for refuelling. But of course inside there is the obligatory Champagne Bar for those of us who feel the need, as well The Photo50 and Jack’s Café offering something altogether more wholesome … However, if people watching is your thing - it certainly is ours - then Jack’s Café with views over the whole shebang is also on the menu. We'll look forward to seeing you there!

Sculpt at Kew

As summer melds into autumn, amble through the picturesque gardens whilst admiring the contemporary sculptures situated amongst the foliage. If you’re an admirer of the art of sculpture and of gardens, like us at The Amazing Blog, Sculpt at Kew marries the two perfectly. It forms the ideal combination, as you can marvel at the man-made beauty in a beautiful natural setting. The exhibition runs from September 18th – October 15th and is held at the famous Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

The stunning gardens are the perfect backdrop to over 30 renowned British and international artists’ work. This innovative exhibition features sculptures in an array of materials from bronze, ceramics, glass to woodwork. There is something for everyone, whether you’re partial to figurative, abstract or modern works of art, and if one happens to take your fancy you can even purchase the sculptures on show. The sculptures range in prices, so there is one for every budget. Carefully curated with a contemporary approach, you are sure to see a diverse variety of work, but all sharing quality, tradition, heritage and integrity in the work. The artists were all chosen with their craft skills in mind, so you are bound to see a high calibre of sculptures.
