A Summer of Art for Tunbridge Wells
PUBLISHED: 11:23 11 May 2014
The new SEEART Fair will take place from 10-13 July 2014 at the Assembly Hall
The launch party for the new SEEART Fair, taking place 10-13 July 2014 at the Assembly Hall, Tunbridge Wells, was well supported by the local business and arts community, with more than 300 guests enjoying the occasion. Guy Portelli of Dragon’s Den fame, said 30 top galleries will bring both established and new young artists to the four-day event, which will also support Kent Life’s charity of the year, chYps. Guy said: “We are delighted to be helping to create awareness and funds for very sick children so they can be looked after where they want to be, comfortable and surrounded by their family.” Gilbert Green of Thomson Snell & Passmore spoke about the need for business to actively support the arts and Mayor of Tunbridge Wells, Dr Ronen Basu, talked about his charity Tunbridge Wells Mental Health Resource; a raffle of artworks raised money for this cause. An exhibition of work from international artists and the ART PULL Gallery was on show in the foyer, arranged by artist Mark Paul Perry, founding director of the SEEART fair project.
