AFFORDABLE ART FAIR HAMPSTEAD

For the third year in a row, we will be returning to the Affordable Art Fair Hampstead (29 April – 3 May) to exhibit selected works from the Jackson’s Painting Prize 2020 finalists. Founded by Will Ramsay in 1999, the Affordable Art Fair provides an accessible alternative to the traditional gallery scene due to its huge audience and strict price ceiling of £6,000. Over the years it has welcomed over 2.5 million visitors, sold 485,000 artworks and now holds events in 10 cities around the world. Collaborating with Affordable Art Fair Hampstead gives us the perfect platform to showcase our shortlisted entries and prize winners; exhibiting at the fair as a finalist will guarantee vast exposure and kick start artists into a new, grander chapter of their careers. This year we are honoured to welcome the Affordable Art Fair UK Fair Director, Elizabeth Dellert, to our panel of Expert Judges.
