Roundup: Surrey Contemporary Art Fair 2019

On the weekend of March 15th the Surrey Contemporary Art Fair returned to Sandown Park Racecourse for the second year running. The new darling of the art fair circuit showcased an eclectic mixture of exhibitors from artists to galleries who displayed artworks from across a multitude of artistic disciplines and mediums.

Having had such a tremendously successful year with the highly talented British mixed-media artist Rob Bishop, we decided to dedicate the whole of Reem Gallery’s stand to Rob Bishop’s artworks. Over the course of the weekend, hundreds marvelled at the methods used by Rob to achieve his pop culture portraits, with many of the artworks finding new homes. Admirers also had the opportunity to chat with Rob on the Sunday and get an even more personal insight into his style and work.

"HO! HO! HO!" Santa & Stavros Flatley come to Town!

In the season to be jolly, Camberley certainly didn’t disappoint and played its part in embracing the festive cheer with the charismatic and dynamic duo Stavros Flatley putting in an energised performance before turning on the Christmas lights and kicking off an incredible fire work display. For the uninitiated, this memorable topless dancing Cypriot family posse were celebrated and highly entertaining contestants from a bygone era of Britain’s Got Talent.

Following on from our recent trip to Miami at the start of the month (read about it here) , we returned to the highly popular venue ‘After Glo’ @ Glo Hair Salon for our Christmas exhibition. As usual, it was very merry with bubbles, cocktails and our signature eclectic mix of artists on show. A special thanks to those that made the evening and another thanks to those who purchased.

In the build up to Christmas we joined the Mayor Dan Adams in dressing up as Santa for a really enjoyable time fundraising for the Surrey Heath Mayor's charities: the Meath Epilepsy charity, the Frimley Health charity and Health Amplifier! Thank you Camberley for all the support you showed us across the town and your generosity that day and evening was exceptional.

The stage is set: 'REBEL' exhibition launches in London on historic night

All the world’s a stage, and every October all the players make their entrances on the London art scene. From the galleries who launch their newest exhibitions to auction houses hammering down on their latest prized artworks to numerous weekend long art fairs; in this time the capital becomes the undisputed centre of the art world.

The launch night for Reem Gallery’s inaugural London show brought together art admirers, passers-by, collectors and artists into one merry and vibrant evening. Being surrounded by more traditional art dealers, our selection of carefully curated artists has been very well received as a welcome addition to the Mayfair and St. James area. It seems deep down there is a rebel in all of us.

Around the corner at Sotheby’s auction house, Banksy’s ‘Girl with Balloon’ sold for just over £1 million pounds and then was instantly shredded infront of aghast onlookers! An historic event for sure that was broadcast globally across news channels. A timely reminder too that despite its infancy, the street art movement is one of the most talked about genres in the world today and will no doubt have a lasting legacy.

You can catch Reem Gallery’s ‘REBEL’ exhibition until October 30th at Mason’s Yard, St. James’s in London.
