The first Affordable Art Fair took place in London's Battersea Park back in 1999 and since then has expanded to 10 cities around the world! According to their website they "welcome over 185,000 art enthusiasts each year to their fairs globally, where they can take their pick from a mix of local, national and international galleries showcasing a wide array of affordable artworks by established artists and rising stars." Each fair is filled with an array of artist performances, talks, tours, hands-on workshops, kid’s activities, live music and a collection of enticing resturant and bar options.
The team at Craig & Rose have long been fans of the AAF and were thrilled when the opportunity arose this year to partner with them by running a selection of talks and workshops for attendees.
