“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”.

“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, Nov 2011, May 2012, Nov 2012
“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, Nov 2012
“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, Nov 2011
“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, April 2013
“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”.
