ART FAIR EAST is an annual event and aims to be an important art fair for the East of England. Our mission is to showcase respected galleries, dealers and artists to an Eastern region audience of art collectors and businesses. The 2017 fair returns to the spectacular setting of Saint Andrews Hall, a well-known events venue at the heart of Norwich city centre.

Norwich is a major retail destination and boasts a number of commercial galleries and museums. Through national and regional advertising in luxury life style and visual arts publications, the fair aims to draw an audience from across the East of England. The event will be supported by an ongoing PR campaign and flyers distributed across the region during the lead up to the event.

Exhibitors are welcome to display contemporary art including painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, video art, installation, performance and original limited edition prints. All artworks must be one off or limited edition. As this is an Art Fair we regret that we cannot accept craft items or mass- produced items.

We will apply a 10% “early-bird” discount to the first 20 successful applicants. ONLY 3 discounted spaces remaining.   

Please scroll down to find the application form.  

N.B. To be eligible for the discount, the full stand fee must be paid by June 1st 2017.
