Artists gathered in Maidenhead High Street for another successful Art on the Street fair on Saturday.

Art groups were exhibiting alongside professional artists at the fair, which has been running since 2009, and all the works of art were up for sale.

Grahame White, 69, from Maidenhead who was at the fair with Windsor Art Club said he enjoyed it as there is ‘nothing snobbish about it’.

One artist, Georgina Abdy, 24, from Burnham has had a stall at Art on the Street 'about eight times'.

The illustrative artist said: “I enjoy it, there is a really lovely atmosphere.”

As well as the array of art on offer there were 10 musical acts who performed throughout the day by the Boy and Boat statue.

Artists included Carl Komuro, Safehaus and The Noteworthy Singers.

Marie-Anne Leonard, one of the Art on the Street organisers, said: “You can never really gauge how many people turn up but it has been incredible.

“Our social media has been really busy and one guy said he sold 14 pieces.”
