The Other Art Fair gives 100 of the best emerging artists working in the UK and beyond the opportunity to sell their work directly to the general public.
We are working with an experienced selection committee made up of experts who will be reviewing each application with chosen artists being given the chance to exhibit at The Other Art Fair.
