After a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Affordable Art Fair is back this spring celebrating inspiring contemporary art with fairs in leafy Battersea Park (10 – 13 March 2022) and Hampstead Heath (5 – 8 May 2022).
The up-coming fairs will have a brand-new programme of highlights to hero the joy of collecting art. On a mission since its foundation to democratise art for all, the fair’s visitors can choose from 100s of handpicked galleries, and 1000s of artworks, whilst enjoying specially curated installations, talks and more. The Fairs will be the perfect opportunity to seek out inspiration for refreshing the home with unique artworks this Spring through colour, texture, hues and more.
Family Hour – Bring the buggy and get creative
Family Hour returns from 11am-12pm at the weekend, allowing families to save on tickets and enjoy the fair with fewer crowds, whilst keeping the little art lovers entertained with fun creative packs, face painting and a variety of activities.
Made in Arts London Showcase
In partnership with Made in Arts London, visitors to Affordable Art Fair, Hampstead will be able to snap up work by some of the best and brightest emerging artistic talent from across University of the Arts London’s (UAL) six colleges and institutes. The showcase will highlight works from the 2021 Made in Arts London cohort’s ‘Iridescent Collection’ – featuring artworks from emerging creatives across the mediums of print, photography, illustration, sculpture and ceramics. Works will also be available to purchase online.
Jacksons Painting Prize 2022
With current submissions for the prestigious Jackson’s Painting Prize well underway, the Hampstead Fair will offer visitors an opportunity to see the UK finalists’ works up close. The showcase will feature works selected by an expert judging panel of artists, art advisors and leading figures in the contemporary art world.
Regional managing director of Affordable Art Fair UK, Jennifer Conner, expressed her excitement for the return of the fairs saying: “We are so looking forward to 2022 and a full year of fairs, kicking off in Battersea in March and followed by the first outing at our home in Hampstead Heath in two years!
We are proud to have been a vital lifeline to artists and galleries throughout the pandemic, with two successful fairs in Battersea in 2021 and an ever-growing online marketplace. Spring is the perfect time to refresh your home with art – and our visitors will be spoiled for choice!.”
