One week countdown to deadline!

As we go into the last week for submissions, we are really pleased with over 200 submissions to date and excited about the coming last week. 50 artists will be selected to show in the inaugural TIAF. We set up The Independent Artist Fair in order to offer artists the opportunity to showcase their work in a financially viable way during one of the most exciting weeks of the international art calender. The range of work from established and emerging artists has been of such a high calibre, that we are confident the show will live up to and surpass our aim of quality over quantity.
We hope you will be able to join us on the opening night of October 16th for music, performance and sponsored drinks. Free entry of course, just let us know you’re coming. More information to follow. Also follow on Twitter
