Aesthetica Annual

So, it's been a good first week of December. The new issue has been released and has been very well received by the international arts community with new partnerships already blossoming.

All in all, it's the big countdown until the holidays. We have so much work to do around here before we shut shop on Christmas Eve, but I am sure we'll get through it all.

Although the new issue has only been out for 5 days, I have started planning the new editorial for the February/March issue and I have some very exciting things in store. I'm going to keep it under my hat for a little while, but I'm sure that you'll love it.

Tonight is the Aesthetica Christmas Party, which I am hosting at my house. I will be leaving shortly to prepare all the lovely food and get those cocktails underway. I decorated my house last night, there is something about that, which puts me into the Christmas spirit.

So, once again, it's a Friday -- an end of the week blog, so I'll write again on Monday and give you all the details.

Oh, by the way. the Aesthetica Annual Publication will be out next week. It's a collection of new writing and artwork. It's a book with the winners and finalists from the Aesthetica Annual Creative Works Competition. It's beautiful!

NewcastleGateshead Art Fair 2008

I just wanted to give you all the heads up on something very exciting in the North East from tomorrow 12 September!

NewcastleGateshead Art Fair, which runs from September 12 to 14 at The Sage Gateshead, is due to see over 7,000 people through the doors. Visitors will have the chance to view interesting works from a London red bus displaying art in the Baltic Square, to a model of what the Hotel Monument project could have looked like.

The event is a major coup for the area and is set to attract art exhibitors, collectors and buyers from the UK and the rest of the world. It will be a showcase for the very best in British and International art, and is a unique opportunity to see new artists, new collections and maybe even make your first art investment.

Vincent Woods, co-director of the Fair said: “Putting the fair together has been a lot of hard work and I am now looking forward to when it all begins. Despite the credit crunch, the art market is growing and art fairs such as this help to complement the U.S. and European art fairs like Art Basel, Frieze, Art Basel Miami and the Armory Art Show.”

Opening times for the fair are:
Friday, September 12: 11am-6pm
Saturday, September 13: 11am-5pm
Sunday, September 14: 11am-5pm

Tickets are on sale via the website or at the Sage Gateshead
www. thesagegateshead.org in the near future.
