Inaugural Bloomsbury Art Fair wins Bar support

Middle Temple Bencher Michael Bowes QC and Middle Temple Bar student Eva Anderson have mobilised barristers and chambers staff to help organise an
event in conjunction with the Helium Foundation, one of London’s premier contemporary art dealerships. From 14-16 July, the Bloomsbury Art Fair will showcase an exciting array of artwork in the stunning surroundings of Goodenough College and its private courtyard garden in central London.


All of the profits from this event will be donated to four highly deserving charities that support people who have suffered from catastrophic injury. They are the Southern Spinal Injuries Trust, the Parachute Regiment Charitysupporting members of the airborne forces in hardship, the Spinal Injuries Association and ‘Motivation’ – an organisation providing wheelchairs to people in the developing world.

The Fair will bring together an eclectic range of artwork from over 40 talented artists and successful galleries. Work by contemporary icons such as Damien Hirst and Banksy will feature alongside classical artists, photographers, mouth painters and sculptors. The outdoor sculpture garden at the Bloomsbury Art Fair will include work by Lana Locke, who was discovered by the Bar Council Art Committee in 2005. Lana’s work now features in a number of prestigious private and public collections.

The Garden Gallery, founded by Rachel Bebb, Gordon Bebb QC’s wife, will be showcasing a selection of contemporary outdoor sculpture and travel photographer Ellie Kealey, Gavin Kealey QC’s daughter, will be exhibiting work from her recent trip to Afghanistan. Outer Temple Chambers is sponsoring complimentary tickets for all Bar Council members and staff. Contact Eva Anderson for more details on eva@bloomsburyartfair.com.
