‘OUR 2021 VISION: ONLINE & OFFLINE’ ARTIST WEBINAR

Wednesday, November 11th
9am Los Angeles | 11am Chicago & Dallas | 12pm New York & Toronto | 5pm London

The Other Art Fair Online Studios launched in April 2020 as a way to provide our exhibiting artists with a global platform to continue showcasing and selling their work to our audience of art lovers and buyers. In a time that has been difficult for independent artists to gain exposure and connect with buyers and collectors, we are proud of the success that The Online Studios has generated, selling over $2 million in art sales to date!

Following this success, and evolving with the world as we know it, our exhibiting artist offering in 2021 will expand to include both presence onsite at the Fair and online.

For more information, please join us on November 11th on Zoom with Fair Founder, Ryan Stanier.

BOOTH PRICES AND COMMISSION STRUCTURE

It is free to apply to exhibit at the fair via the fair’s online application. Payment is only taken for your booth if you are successfully chosen to exhibit at The Other Art Fair. Booth payment is split in two parts: 30% paid to confirm you place and 70% taken one month before the fair.

What are the booth prices? 

16 linear ft + 2 spotlights = CAD 3,145 + sales tax

All art sales made onsite at the fair are processes through The Other Art Fair’s central payment system. The fair takes 15% commission from all art sales – so the majority always goes back to the exhibitor.
