Two-for-one tickets to the Affordable Art Fair for Square Meal readers


affordable art fair 2012 - Affordable_art_fair_James_Freeman_Koh_SAng_Woo_Carrera2_(3).jpgAspiring art collectors, mark up your diaries now, for the Affordable Art Fair (AAF) is coming to town againand Square Meal readers can get two-for-one tickets.

The AAF aims to make art accessible to all, and with pieces ranging in value from £40 to £4,000, there are plenty of options for everyone.

Original paintings, print, sculpture and photography will all be on display and available to buy, while those looking for a more immersive experience can head to one of the activities, lectures or tours.

Starting as a fair in a south-west-London warehouse in 1996, the AAF has swiftly grown in popularity and now holds events across the world – from Paris to New York and Singapore.

Those looking for more design-led art should head to Pick Me Up, which starts four days later. The UK’s first annual graphic art fair has artwork available to buy from £10, as well as their own full programme of talks and activities, including a model-making workshop with Wallace and Gromit creator Aardman.

This is, as Wallace would say, cracking stuff.
