 Dates announced: Glasgow Art Fair, Scotland’s National Art Fair
    will take place from Thursday 25 to Sunday 28 March 2010

Glasgow Art Fair will return to the trademark white pavilions in George Square, from 25 to 28 March
2010 for its 15th year. Recognised as one of the most prestigious art fairs in the UK outside of London,
Glasgow Art Fair presents work from over 50 galleries and arts organisations from throughout Scotland,
the UK and overseas.


A key date in the cultural calendar, there is no better place to get a taste of the contemporary art scene.
Glasgow’s reputation as a centre for visual arts excellence, together with its position as a European
shopping and style capital, makes the city an ideal platform to showcase the best of contemporary art
for sale and to encourage visitors to invest in new pieces.


Earlier this year the 2009 Glasgow Art Fair saw a diverse selection of galleries representing over 1000
artists working across a range of media – exquisite oil painting from Joan Eardley, JD Ferguson, Arthur
Melville and Barbara Rae; print work from Victor Pasmore, Craigie Aitchison, Alasdair Gray, Kenny
Hunter, Moyna Flannegan and Adrian Wiszniewski; photography and lens based work by John Kenny
and Eva Stenram and limited edition ceramic pieces by David Blyth. And with work ranging from under
£100 to tens of thousands of pounds, there is something to suit all tastes and budgets at Glasgow Art
Fair.


Glasgow Art Fair is currently inviting Galleries to submit applications for the 2010 event. To be
considered for selection, galleries should visit www.glasgowartfair.com where they can download the
application form which includes details about the available stands.
