Bethlem Affordable Art Fair Opens 7 December

You are invited to the The Bethlem Gallery’s much loved annual open exhibition, showcasing the work of artists from South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. The exhibition offers a treasure trove of desirable paintings, prints, drawings, ceramics, photographs, textiles, and sculpture made by over 40 artists on show in the gallery throughout December. There’s something for everyone with a selection of art, gifts, cards and mince pies! Everything is from £5 – £150, perfect for stocking fillers or special presents for you and your loved ones.

The Bethlem Gallery was set up in 1997 to support and promote the talents of artists in South London who have been marginalised due to mental health problems. The gallery provides a professional platform for artists to show and sell work, equipping people with the experience, skills and support to exhibit within the wider art world.

In recent years there has been an increase in public interest to exhibit and collect work by artists who exist outside of the mainstream art world. Our artists represent an inspiring section of this creative community with many contributing work to major Outsider Arts collections throughout Europe such as the Museum of Everything and the ABCD collection Paris. The Bethlem Affordable Art Fair celebrates the richness and diversity of our artists’ talents, giving visitors the opportunity to take home original artworks at bargain prices.
