“Thank you so much for a great fair, I sold two prints, one original, got three commissions for portraits and three galleries are very keen on my works. The public and the other artists were very friendly and receptive. This is all thank to all of you and your hard work. You’ve made the Fair an incredible success.”

Lorenzo Belenguer

“The Other Art Fair was an amazing opportunity to get exposure to a large number of people. It was extremely well organised and, in addition to selling work, I was approached by several galleries who offered to work with me.” 

Dan Hillier

“Just to say a thank you for a terrific fair.  I had tons of interest – sold work and I am now busy following up gallery leads.  All the visitors I spoke to gave very good feedback and the friends and contacts I invited were impressed with the standard of work on show.  I shall definitely reapply for the fair." 

Caroline Hall

"A brilliantly run fair by an exceptionally thoughtful team. This event didn't just give me sales and promises of future commissions - it gave me exposure to hundreds of my target audience. I couldn't recommend it enough and I'll be applying to take part again."

Greg Harris

"It was a phenomenal weekend for sales, for exposure, and for getting to meet like-minded souls. I have just had a studio visit with a curator who saw my work at the fair, and - once all is signed - five of my pieces are headed to a gallery in Geneva!  I'm over-the-moon excited and really wish to thank the team for making this all possible!"

Lisa Cirenza

"Thank you for organizing this fair. It has been a great success. The amount of visitors really exceeded our expectations and we were able to sell a lot of art. Everybody involved was very helpful, the venue was fantastic, and it brought together a great group of artists. Well done."

Alexander Korzer-Robinson

“Showing at The Other Art Fair has opened me up to more opportunities than I could have ever imagined…I was approached by Scream Gallery who invited me to show in a group exhibition of international emerging artists and Store Street Gallery who asked me to show in New York and Los Angeles." 

Caroline Jane Harris

“It has been a great experience. The fair was very successful. Christie’s enquiring about my prices, A Swedish journalist taking photos of my stand, I may sign up with another gallery if we agree on the T&Cs, many people engaging with the work, and so much more…” 

Adrian Scicluna

“I was so pleased with the response to my work, have had increased traffic through my website and FB page, received follow up emails from art placement companies and have had messages enquiring about the work that was on show. So the outcomes were all positive, and they are definitely outcomes that would not have arisen if I had spent that money on a show at home instead."
