Planning for the second annual Battle Art fair is now well underway, with organisers suggesting it could be a vintage year.

"Having seen the quality of work submitted, we feel this year will be better than last year and will set the standard for future years," Lesley Samms, Director of Pure Arts Group, explained.

The Art Fair opens its doors to the public on September 16 at The Powdermills Hotel and will once again be showcasing some of the very best Contemporary Fine Art being produced by both established and emerging artists from London and the South East.

"We will have some very special art work on show, such as the Nelson Mandela sculpture by Guy Portelli, the Sea Poem dress by Cathryn Kemp and the Last Supper Sculpture by National Sculpture prize nominated artist Svetlana K Lie,"
Lesley continued. "This really is just the very tip of the iceberg."

Organised by Pure Arts Group, the fair is quickly establishing itself as an essential part of the South East arts calendar.

Selected artists include Helen Masacz, Louis Turpin, Dani Humberstone and Paul Apps to name but a few.

To give critics and visitors a taste of what to expect a selection of artwork by Art Fair selected artists is on permanent display throughout the summer at The Powdermills Hotel.

Reem Acason, the current artist in residence at Powdermills, will also be creating a new body of work, influenced by the Hotel during the summer months, which will go on view to the public from early September.

Crowhurst Park artist in residence, Martin Pinder, will be making a painting of the Manor House at Crowhurst Park, which will be gifted to the Park and reproduced for each of the rental lodges.

Helen Samuels will be the artist in residence for Nobles Restaurant and will be showcasing her abstract still life paintings throughout October and November.

The Art Fair preview tour hits the road at the beginning of September, starting with several pieces of work featured at the ‘A Day @ The Park' event in Alexandra Park, Hastings on 3rd September.

On the following two Saturdays (September 10 & 17) Battle Art Fair artists will be making an appearance at the Stade Open Space, in conjunction with eat @ The Stade, as part of the Heritage Open Days and the Seafood & Wine Festival.
