Day 126: Freize Art Fair

If you are into art and have some time/money to pop to London, the try and check out the Frieze Art Fair. It's held in Regant's Park between 14th and 17th October. That's this Thursday so make time to go see it.

The art world gets really excited about it every year. Over 170 galleries from all over the world come and sell there art. There are a lot of new artists there, trying to get picked up by a gallery. I think I'm right in saying that Saachi (who owns a big gallery in London) picked up some artist from Frieze a few times, so its important stuff. There's a real buzz about the whole thing. There's film and music stuff going on too.

Confession: I have never actually been, but I have a lot of friends who have gone and said it's really exciting. A few also said it was a bit like a jumble sale, 'cause there is so much going on, but I say embrace it, take it all in and accept it for what it is. I mean, come on, who remembers H&M when it first opened? Now that was a jumble sale!

Check out their website. It's got loads of information on it about who's going to be there. Freize also have an art magazine, so if you can't go, maybe you could pick up one of those.

If art is your thing, try and get there and see how inspired you can be...
