The Affordable Art Fair - Seattle

The Affordable Art Fair is coming to Seattle in a few short weeks! A fun four-day event hosting 50 galleries and a huge array of contemporary art, the first-ever edition of the Affordable Art Fair Seattle will take place November 8-11, 2012 at the Seattle Center.

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.

Local area exhibitors include: James Harris Gallery, Prole Drift, G. Gibson Gallery, Linda Hodges Gallery, PDX, Robert Yoder/Season, Patricia Cameron Gallery, Sidereal Fine Art Press, Patricia Rovzar Gallery, Friesen Abmeryer Gallery, Hall Spassov, Seattle ArtREsource, AED Fine Art, and ArtXchange.
