Affordable Art Fair Los Angeles

Affordable Art Fair Los Angeles

Kelly Washbourne, Weekend, 91x112 cm

Mark your calendars – January 18-22!

The inaugural Los Angeles edition of the Affordable Art Fair is quickly approaching – only 5 weeks away. Taking place in downtown L.A. at the famed Event Deck at L.A. LIVE during Pacific Standard Time, the Fair has a stellar variety of programming and events you won’t want to miss.

Affordable Art Fair L.A. will kick off with an Exclusive Benefit Reception on Wed, Jan 18 for Free Arts for Abused Children, a local nonprofit dedicated to inspiring hope in the lives of abused, homeless, and at-risk children through volunteer-led creative arts programs. 100% of ticket proceeds for this event will be donated to support their philosophy that “Art heals!”

The evening will continue with the Private Preview Party, a special opportunity to sip complimentary cocktails while getting a first look at the artwork on view.  If you attend either of these events, your ticket will gain you entry to browse the booths throughout the weekend.

The Fair will be presenting a wide variety of programming and workshops for both children and adults, including featured talks related to artxwomen, a special section galleries showing only female artists, advice on how to start or grow an art collection, conversations with graffiti artist duo DABSMYLA, a special talk by producer/director Morgan Spurlock (SuperSize Me, 30 Days, Greatest Movie Ever Sold), and kid's workshops focused on both arts and crafts and Warhol-inspired pop art, hosted by and much more.

You’ll also want to take advantage of the Free Admission hours, Thu, Jan 19 from 4pm-9pm.  With over 60 galleries showing original contemporary works by over 300 artists, you’ll want to come early and leave plenty of time to explore the impressive selection of artwork on view.  And, with all artwork priced under $10,000, with many below $1,000 – there’s no need to leave this art fair empty-handed.
