Affordable Art Fair 2022 Returns to Melbourne
By creating a platform for buyers to browse and buy artworks at accessible price points, the annual Affordable Art Fair challenges the assumption the art world has to be intimidating and expensive.
It returns to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre this September (1-4), to see the space transformed into a massive art marketplace with more than 40 Australian and international galleries exhibiting thousands of artworks.
Prices will be clearly labeled and ranging between $100 - $10,000. If something takes your fancy, buyers will have the opportunity to pay with Art Money, an initiative that allows you to pay for art purchases over 10 months, and you’ll be able to take your new piece home with you on the day, with complimentary wrapping onsite.
This year the Fair will be partnering with The Torch, a charity that provides arts, cultural and industry support to Indigenous offenders and ex-offenders in Victoria through its Indigenous Arts in Prisons and Community program. The Torch will be holding an exhibition of its artists work, with 100% of all sales going directly back to the organisation.
Fair-goers will also have the chance to discover exciting new artists through its Young Talent Victoria exhibition, which will shine a spotlight on the work of five local creatives under the age of 35: Mark Chu, Liam O’Neil, Tegan Iversen, Miranda Smith and Alice Oehr.
Tickets range between $17 - $45 (kids under 16 enter for free), and all ticket holders who purchase tickets before August 30th will go into the draw to win $1,000 to spend at the Fair.
