Preview evening Thursday 14 November 2013

Now an established annual event in Scotland’s contemporary art world, the 9th

edition of The Edinburgh Art Fair opens its doors at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange, 11

New Market Road, Edinburgh, EH14 1RJ from Friday 15th until Sunday 17th November

2013. Organiser Arte in Europa transforms this venue into a vibrant and inspiring

environment, encouraging thousands of buyers to flock to Edinburgh to seek out

artworks by world renowned and highly collectable artists as well as recent

graduates showing for the first time at an art fair.

With thousands of works available for sale and, with prices starting at seventy five

pounds and rising to tens of thousands of pounds, the fair is sure to have something

to satisfy everyone. From the most discerning collector to the novice first time buyer

the fair caters for people from all walks of life and for all tastes and budgets.

Galleries from Scotland, the rest of the UK, Europe and beyond are bringing an

eclectic mix from internationally renowned artists including John Piper, Peter Blake,

Peter Howson OBE, the late John Bellany, Alexander Miller and Joan Gillchrest, as

well as newer finds from emerging artists. Appealing to interior designers and the

general public, The Edinburgh Art Fair is the place to find the perfect painting or

sculpture for the home or office.

“The art galleries exhibiting at this year’s fair are offering hundreds of works of

original art by 20th and 21st century artists. The Edinburgh Art Fair gives visitors the

opportunity to select from an extremely wide range of paintings, illustrations, limited

edition artists prints and sculpture. It is the perfect place to visit if considering

starting a collection or finding the outstanding piece for a specific location. With

prices starting from under £100, why not select a piece of art as a christening, 21st

birthday or wedding present? You have a very good chance of picking up one of

the stars of the future.”

Why not make a day of it? You can leave your kids in the complimentary crèche

(birth to 12 years), so that you can peruse the art without interruption. Even the

young budding artists amongst them can partake in various art related activities to

keep them happy. There will be daily printmaking displays and workshops and

painting lessons for those adventurous enough to get their hands dirty creating their

own unique work of art while the fully licensed café bar and restaurant offers a

range of breakfast rolls, sandwiches, tray bakes, cakes, soups and high teas and, for

those looking for something more elegant, there is a champagne bar in the main

exhibiting hall so as you can take your time, explore the art and contemplate your

purchases over a nice glass of bubbly.

Edinburgh has excellent public transport and the Corn Exchange benefits greatly

from several bus and train routes. Lothian Region Transport runs a number 35 which

stops outside the Corn Exchange and Slateford Train Station (on the Glasgow central

line) is a two minute walk to the venue.
