Art Fairs to look-out for in 2016


Hello everyone, its Sally. I’d like to begin my blog with a short article about what Art Fairs you should look out for in 2016. I’ve always loved to add a few Art Fairs to my calendar, just to see what’s new and innovative in the world of Art. It’s not just paintings, there’s so many new concepts being thought-up all the time which have an artistic value and they’re show-cased at these Fairs so it really is worth taking a look. You might not be a diehard Art enthusiast but I guarantee there will be some interesting pieces of work that you’ll enjoy reviewing. I’ve took friends to many Fairs and they’ve not really been that interested to go they’ve just been at a loose-end. Once they’ve been though, they’re more often than not, inspired by something they’ve seen and that’s what it’s all about.

OK, well I live in London so of course, the London Art Fair is something I visit year-on-year This is the main modern British and contemporary Art Fair held annually in the UK This year will be the 28th Edition. If you’re interested in going, you can find it at the Business Design Centre in Islington. It’s being held from the 20th until the 24th of January so you haven’t got much time to make arrangements.

‘The Other Art Fair’, is also one of my favourite Fairs held in London. It’s a great place to see new undiscovered artists and maybe even buy some of their work. You never know, you could make some money if they make an impression on the Art world. The 11th Edition will be held in April from the 7th until the 10th at Victoria House. There will be artwork from 130 selected artists. There’s other cool things that happen here, one year for instance they had live tattooing. It really is just a celebration of Art, whatever that may be. It helps to create a more unique experience than many Fairs I’ve been to.

There’s a couple of my favourites. I’ll let you know a few more as the year progresses.
