The Affordable Art Fair

The Affordable Art Fair nearly manages to fit the entire world of contemporary art into a sprawling—yet walkable—space. There will be over 1,000 local and international artists represented in galleries full of sculptures, paintings, photographs, and other media in every imaginable style. In fact, there are only three big requirements for the fair: every artist represented must be living, all work must be original, and everything must be priced below $10,000.

Visitors shouldn't be intimidated by that top price tag, though. Fair founder Will Ramsay and his team want to make art accessible to as many people as possible, so they amass pieces priced as low as $100. They also encourage art newbies and experts alike to attend and explore the works of established artists, emerging artists, and recent art graduates. Kids and adults might even uncover their own hidden talents during onsite art workshops.

Visitors' Tips

  • Bring paper and a pen, pencil, or fine-tipped paintbrush in order to note down favorite pieces as you wander.
  • Ask the exhibiting artists questions about their works—you'll have a story to share later if you buy a piece.
  • Check out the programming to see what free panels and tours to join.
  • Check out this video primer for more details on what to expect.

Customer Reviews

Go with an open mind and realize that affordable is relative in terms. You're buying original artwork so it's worth every penny!

"Affordable" is a matter of opinion, but worth the groupon price just to see some new art!
