The Affordable Art Fair is in Seattle and your first view is Thursday, November 8th from 6:00 - 10:00 pm. Fifty galleries will have a huge array of contemporary art and the Preview Party is your chance to select artwork before the show opens to the public on Friday. This is the first-ever edition of the Affordable Art Fair Seattle and it's a good that they made it to Seattle.
The concept is simple, yet unique: an inspiring and friendly atmosphere in which you can find thousands of original paintings, prints, sculptures and photographs all under one roof, ranging from $100-$10,000, with more than half priced under $5,000. The work of young, emerging artists hangs alongside some of the biggest household names, while our Emerging Artists Exhibition provides a chance to snap up work by a future art world star.
