A popular art fair returns to Reading this weekend.

Art lovers will be flocking to the Rivermead Leisure Complex this weekend for the fourth Reading Contemporary Art Fair.

More than 90 artists from across the UK showcase their work. Painters, sculptors, glass workers and installation artists will be presenting their works of art.

It is the fourth time the fair has been held in Reading and it has become a firm fixture on the town’s arts calendar.

The art fair, which runs from 10am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday, is suitable for both experienced collectors and those curious about the art world.

Among those exhibiting are local artists Robert Fitzmaurice and Kate Lockhart, who both create work at the OpenHand OpenSpace studio in Oxford Road.

Others will come from further afield, like Dublin artist Eithne Roberts, who creates paintings based around the beauty of everyday objects.

As well as browsing and buying art work, visitors will be able to get hands on, with workshops by Reading art group Jelly, and an interactive project by artist Este MacLeod.

The Reading Contemporary Art Fair runs on Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 5pm. Entry on the door is £7, £6 concessions, £1 children aged five to 10, children under five free.
