The Other Art Fair.


One of the UK’s leading art fairs will give people the chance to pick up work by emerging artists in Bristol next month.

The Other Art Fair, presented by Saatchi Art, will feature work by 80 painters, sculptors and photographers.

The fair started five years ago when it was realised art-lovers were struggling to find the next big talent and artists were finding it difficult to gain recognition.

All the art has been hand-selected from more than 500 applications, and it means collectors can invest in someone who is keen to make their name.

It gives people the chance to snap up work at affordable prices before it starts going on display at galleries.

There will also be interactive installations, a bar, Instagram exhibition and film screenings.

The Other Art Fair will take place at Bristol’s Arnolfini, in Narrow Quay, on September 2 from 10am-6pm and September 3 from 10am-5pm.

Tickets, priced £4.40-6, are available from
