8 years ago was the last time I exhibited at the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea. That year EAStudios in Broughty Ferry took 9 of my 3ft square original acrylic paintings down and sold out all of them. That’s what can happen at a fair that sees over 20 000 visitors through it’s doors during the 5 days it’s open.
AAF LONDON 2013 PREVIEWS 23rd Oct 2013
Very excited this year to be showing 16 of my new ‘Consonance and Dissonance’ paintings this year with Art Exposure Gallery in Battersea, London. Fairs like this are a great way to introduce your work to new audiences. There’s a wide array of different work on show by established and emerging artists shown by over 100 galleries all under one roof. ‘Affordable’ means that work on show will range between £40 and £4000. I’ve always done well at fairs like this, however in recent years I’ve only shown at the Scottish fairs (Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow).
One year at the Glasgow Fair when showing with Glasgow’s Annan Gallery, I had to twice give them more paintings during the show as they were selling out each day. In the end they sold out 17 paintings which rivaled sales at a decent sized solo exhibition. What’s even more encouraging is that those buying the paintings are almost always new to my work and buying their first piece. Many of them have continued to follow and buy more of my work at the galleries showing them. Since I’m not showing in any galleries south of Manchester, this will be a great chance for exposure of my work to a new audience.
Here’s a video about the Fair from the organizers of AAF London:
