Edinburgh Art Fair
Edinburgh Art Fair

Billed as Scotland’s international art fair, EAF presents galleries from throughout the UK, Europe and further afield who showcase a vast range of original paintings, prints, sculpture, photography, ceramics, glass, jewellery and furniture by established names, emerging talents and recent graduates. As many exhibitors travel long distances, the majority of their artists cannot be found locally, making this a rare opportunity to view and buy their work at prices ranging from £100 to £100,000. The Fair’s organisers are particularly keen to stress that art is for everyone and not just an elite few and welcome anyone who may feel intimidated at the prospect of visiting a gallery. 

There is an art workshop where children (and older visitors) can get creative under supervision as well as a licensed bar, restaurant, coffee bar, food stand and a ‘chill out’ space to relax and unwind away from the crowds. There is also easy listening live music and spoken word performances throughout the weekend, with live band performances on the Friday and Saturday evening.

The event is ticketed – see the EAF website (left). O2 Academy Edinburgh is the former Edinburgh Corn Exchange. After attending the Fair on Friday 17th Nov, I’ve attached some images from the galleries and artists whom I spoke with – great to chat with exhibitors about their work.
