The Affordable Art Fair
The art market has long been recognised for peddling its wares at over-inflated prices. The Affordable Art Fair, held in Temple Meads Station's Old Passenger Shed, provides an antidote, offering a relaxed, unstuffy environment in which to browse and buy.
This fair is about accessible art in unintimidating surroundings. You can still spot the odd famous name on the walls - though it's more likely to be an etching than a five-foot painting. If you're willing to go for someone you've never heard of, the whole gamut of creativity is on sale here - from ceramics to holograms.
More than 50 galleries from the UK and abroad exhibit a wide range of contemporary art including sculpture, paintings and photography, with prices ranging from £50 to £3000.
