Art Pieces < S$15,000: Affordable Art Fair
Art collectors and enthusiasts will not want to miss the eighth Autumn Edition of the Affordable Art Fair.
Founded by William Ramsay and launched in London in 1999 to debunk the myth that collecting art is only for the wealthy and elite, the Art Fair showcases artworks that are priced between $100 to $15,000, with 75 percent of the pieces priced below $7,500.
Sixty-nine galleries from Singapore, Asia, Australia, Europe and the US are displaying a diverse selection of contemporary artworks across a variety of styles from abstract to figurative, and mediums including paintings, sculptures, photography and new media by over 500 artists.
