Selected for the Parallax Art Fair

I'm thrilled, and to be honest, a little surprised to be included in Parallax Art Fair.  It is a fair that states it is open to all genres, but I keep thinking they're going to contact me and say "Sorry, we realise you're associated with the craft world, we don't really want you.....".  It makes much of its openness - all kinds of work frm all genres is considered - but is also curated, so that it hangs together as a show as well as a fair.

From the various bits of blurb about Parallax Art Fair:

Parallax Art Fair is the first art fair of its kind.  It is for artists to promote their work directly to dealers/buyers in a professional venue in central London, UK, but without expensive charges for booths or commission taken from work sold.  The fair will is curated by Gayane Umerova, Senior curator at the Art Gallery of Uzbekistan and third curator of the "5+1" art project touring to National Gallery of Zacheta (Warsaw, Poland). 

Parallax Art Fair is different from other fairs in that it grew out of an international exhibition exploring new theories of art history and the theory of the object. As well as an opportunity to promote work, participants also become part of a culturally important event exploring new theories. As a group of artists displaying their individual works they create together one collective art object: Parallax Art Fair.
The fair will take place July 1st -3rd 2011 at La Galleria (Royal Opera Arcade), Mayfair, London.
