What is 'contemporary' art?
Contemporary art simply means art made by living artists. It doesn’t refer to any particular style or medium.
What is an art fair?
An Art Fair is a place where you can meet face to face with artists who show their work to the buying public. All under one roof, you can browse a wide variety of mediums and styles on each artist’s exhibiting stand and talk to them about their work. You can buy artworks direct from the artist or gallery and take them away with you on the day or arrange to have them delivered. An art fair is the ideal environment to learn more about contemporary art and find that special piece to add the unique touch to your house or office.
