 The Affordable Art Fair will return to Battersea Park for its annual spring edition from 7 – 10 March 2019. Ahead of their 20th anniversary celebrations at Battersea Autumn in October 2019, the Affordable Art Fair will kick start this commemorative year with a celebration of the use of colour. A packed programme of talks, workshops and live art demonstrations will explore the theme and the fair will host over 110 galleries, exhibiting 1,000s of original artworks at affordable prices (from £100 up to £6,000).

Returning to the Affordable Art Fair for Battersea Spring, Platform Projects is a collection of large-scale installations by emerging artists to be exhibited throughout the fair. The initiative breaks the mould of their other fairs, by giving a platform to artworks by 2019’s most exciting emerging artists.

Other programme highlights include:

  • Get inspired by Mothers Who Make. The national initiative supporting mothers who are artists will host two panels across the weekend exploring how to realise your artistic ambitions.
  • Celebrate at the Thursday Late. For those looking for the ultimate post-work release,catch a slice of midweek culture at the Thursday Late View. Visitors can delve into an innovative programme of unmissable workshops with complimentary drinks and a live DJ throughout the evening – open from 5.30 until 9pm.
  • Colour yourself creative with colour-themed workshops by London Fine Art Studios taking place across the week, from choosing the best artwork for your home to creating your very own from 2019’s most on-trend palette. 
  • Brighten up your home for a good cause. NSPCC are Battersea Spring’s official charity partner and will be hosting a booth of donated paintings, drawings and sculpture, with all proceeds from sales going to the charity.

Full details of Battersea Spring, including featured artists, workshops, galleries and installations will be announced in January 2019.
