Glasgow Contemporary Art Fair
28 April 2017 until 30 April 2017
Glasgow is hosting the third of what has become a major date on the cultural calendar with the staging of the Glasgow Contemporary Art Fair at the end of April.
The 2017 Glasgow Contemporary Art Fair once again takes place at the iconic venue of the Old Fruitmarket on the 28th, 29th and 30th April, featuring quite literally hundreds of galleries, artists, printmakers and art collectives, as organiser Gerry Muldoon of GM Events outlines. “Following last year’s successful event, we will again be featuring some of the best known galleries and artists from the Central Belt, exhibitors from all over Scotland and several from further afield will be present. Exhibition space sold out very quickly indeed and again we have a waiting list.”
The GCAF, which is supported by Cass Art, is an opportunity for artists and galleries to exhibit and sell contemporary affordable and original art at a centrally located and iconic venue, with two floors of work and prices ranging from around £50 to upwards of £10,000. Visitors can expect to see a wonderful range and variety of original art, prints, sculpture and photography while the event will feature established, celebrity, and newly qualified up and coming artists and work especially commissioned for the fair. During the weekend, the public will have the chance to ‘meet and greet’ artists who will be in attendance.
The GCAF organisers have also teamed up with Glasgow City Council to offer those attending this year’s event by car an absolutely fantastic deal with all day parking (8 am to 6 pm) at Duke Street Car Park on Saturday and Sunday for only £2.50! The car park is a mere 8-10 minute walk from the Old Fruitmarket and gives visitors the opportunity to sample the delights of the Merchant City shops, cafes and restaurants.
The opening times are as follows – Friday 28th April 6 pm – 9 pm; Saturday 29th April 10 am – 6 pm; Sunday 30th April 10 am – 5 pm.
Entrance fees on the Saturday and Sunday will be just £3 per adult with children under 15 free of charge. For further information, including a full list of exhibitors, visit www.gcaf.co.uk ; www.facebook.com/glasgowcontemporaryartfair/ Twitter @GCAF2017
