Below are questions we regularly get asked from both exhibitors and visitors. If you have another question you would like answered please feel free to contact us.
What is the difference between an art exhibition and an art fair?
An art exhibition usually has a theme and takes place within a gallery, whereas an art fair has much more art on offer and tends to be a much more friendly open event where visitors can meet the artists and galleries exhibiting a wide variety of genres and styles.
What kind of artwork will be available to buy at the art fairs?
