The art fair is the first one to be held in by the organisers in Fulham.  It was held on 7. 9 and 10 October 2010
They also run the Brighton Art Fair every year.

Palace Art Fair
The site of the fair is excellent, in the old Fulham Palace, formerly a bishop's residence, access from Bishops Avenue, and  set in a beautiful park.

Fulham Palace and park - well worth a visit
You can walk there easily along the river Thames, with Putney on the opposite bank.  Putney Bridge underground station is on the District Line.

On site were marquees full of stands for the artists.   Painters, printmakers, potters, sculptors etc....
I met several I knew
Beth, Ali, Pippa...

I particularly liked the work of Ali Yanya, have a look at a blog I came across,

This blog

and Ali's website 

Also it is possible to get nice cups of coffee or tea during the day even when no events are on, and food from the cafe seemed excellent. On a nice day you can site outside on the terrace and watch the children play on the grassy lawns.

The show was attracting a lot of well-heeled upper class Londoners and the friends of the artists and gallery owners.

The excellent gallery, Art Dog, was represented by Pippa Graber, who was selling work by Moira Jarvis, as well as other artists.
