Just as I’m looking for new art to adorn my walls, I receive an email telling me the Affordable Art Fair is returning to Bristol! HOORAY!
This regular fixture on the Bristol scene is returning to Passenger Shed this weekend (18-20 September), and gives punters the chance to purchase one off and limited pieces of original artwork from as little as £50, up to £5000. With over 50 galleries showing a mixture of contemporary paintings, prints, sculpture and photography, the work is a diverse showcase from local artists as well as those further afield.
I think it’s brilliant that there’s an opportunity in our city to support local artists by viewing and buying their work, plus it gives you something different to hang in that blank space rather than those same old IKEA Ribba frames (totally guilty of this!). Pop down til 8pm on Friday and peruse the works with a complimentary drink in your hand. Not too shabby!
The Affordable Art Fair runs from 18th-20th September at Brunel’s Old Station, find out more here.
This post was in collaboration with the Affordable Art Fair (obvs) but all opinions are my own – I just really like art.
