Fraternise – the Salon is co-curated by the charity’s artist-trustees, Rachel Howard, Judith Dean and artist-directors A. David Crawforth and Naomi Siderfin.

Beaconsfield is an artist-led entity that specialises in encouraging artists to pursue projects of ambition and to experiment without commercial pressure. The Salon brings together collaborators, patrons and protégés who have worked with Beaconsfield or who support its role in the artists’ community.

The Salon offers a rare opportunity to view a diverse range of contemporary works (many artists exhibiting together for the first time) and to start or expand a collection. Sales will benefit both participating artists and Beaconsfield.
