Edinburgh Art Fair

Edinburgh Art Fair

About Edinburgh Art Fair

Established in 2005, Edinburgh Art Fair is an international art fair with a reputation for showing high-quality artworks from all four corners of the globe. Galleries from throughout the UK, Europe, and further afield descend upon O2 Academy Edinburgh every November to showcase the works of their artists, sculptors, designers, makers, and creators to a diverse, knowledgeable, and appreciative audience.

At EAF you will find established, household-name artists rubbing shoulders and sharing exhibiting space with recent graduates, mid-career, and self-taught artists alike. As many of our exhibitors travel long distances to exhibit with us, the majority of artists cannot be found on your local high street meaning the only opportunity for you to view and buy their work is at the fair which makes EAF week a highlight on the calendars of all art enthusiasts. Our ethos at EAF is to show that art is for everyone and not just an elite few. For anyone who has felt intimidated by visiting a gallery then EAF is for you. We welcome thousands of like-minded individuals who come along to browse, meet, chat, relax over coffee or lunch, and of course, buy from the vast selection of original paintings, prints, sculpture, photography, ceramics, glass, handmade jewellery, bespoke furniture, and design wares on show. And with prices ranging from £100 - £100,000, for unique items which have been imagined and created with time, passion, talent, and love, we are sure to have something for everyone, no matter personal tastes or budgets.

We welcome children to EAF and have an art workshop where young (and older) visitors can draw, paint and get creative in a safe environment, while there is also a licensed bar, restaurant, coffee bar, and food stand and, we have a chill-out space to relax and unwind away from the general noise and crowds.

With EAF LIVE, there is entertainment during the day with easy listening live music and spoken word, and from 6pm on Friday and Saturday evenings, we have live bands performing until 11pm.
