The Matchbox Project
This year The House of Fairy Tales is the official charity for The Other Art Fair. During October’s Fair in the Truman Brewery, we are inviting artists from the fair as well as other established international artists to create a matchbox artwork for a specially curated fundraising exhibition that will be catalogued and promoted during the fair.
Over the weekend the artworks will be offered to collectors through a silent auction. The minimum bid will be £40.The charity will encourage all visitors to the Fair to participate in the silent auction, as well as art collectors throughout the world through an online promotion.
