This year’s Borders Art Fair returns to the Borders Event Centre in Kelso with over 70 artists, galleries and makers from across the UK. 

Sponsored by investment management consultants McInroy & Wood, participants include painters Aine Divine RSW, Darren Woodhead SWLA, Gill Walton SSA, Chris Brook and Davy Brown, sculptors Richard Goldsworthy, Tish Potter and Michelle de Bruin, the Whitehouse Gallery from Kirkcudbright, Alpha Art Gallery from Edinburgh and Moy Mackay Gallery from Peebles and the Society of Scottish Artists. There will also be ceramics by Redbraes Pottery, glassware by Julia Linstead and botanical illustrations by Marianne Hazlewood.

This year the Spotlight Area will be curated by the Royal Scottish Academy and feature work by several of their Member Artists and Academicians. There will also be a pop-up print studio where visitors can learn about different techniques and have a go at creating their own masterpiece to take home. 

Throughout the weekend there will demonstrations by artists and makers and tours of nearby Marchmont House, and a food hall. Those unable to attend can enjoy a series of free online workshops hosted on the Fair’s website.
