Affordable Art Fair Sydney: Helping New Collectors Into the Market
Looking to invest in some art? Or maybe you just want something amazing on your walls! Either way, the Affordable Art Fair Sydney has you covered.

Running from June 2–5, Affordable Art Fair Sydney will give art enthusiasts the chance to grow (or begin!) their collection, with all pieces priced from $100 up to $10,000. Located at the Royal Randwick Racecourse in the Eastern Suburbs, the fair will feature 35 Australian galleries, with paintings, sculptures, prints, and more on offer.

Affordable Art Fair is the largest art fair organiser in the world, hosting events from New York to Hong Kong – so, if you’re new to the art market, you’re in safe hands! They make sure their fairs are easy to stroll through, providing guides to the layout upon entry, and there’s always a complementary wrapping station to make sure your purchase gets home safely. The Art Fair’s Sydney edition will feature an incredible installation of Australian sculptures presented by SOHO Galleries as well as award-winning food and drink available, so even if you’re not looking to buy, you can still have a great day out.

One of the best things about the fair is that it genuinely endeavours to make the art world accessible to everyone. Although the fair recognises that ‘affordable’ is a really relative term, they differentiate between the terms ‘affordable’ and ‘cheap’:

You may not be able to buy a £15 poster at one of our fairs, or through our online marketplace — but for not much more, you can pick up a gorgeous limited edition print or illustration. By expanding your budget a little further, you’ll be able to invest in an original painting – the relative increase in value for money is exponential!
SARAH LYONS, AFFORDABLE ART FAIR.

Ultimately, art is an investment, so you have to be willing to put something in to get anything out – but that doesn’t mean you have to spend millions, like the auctions you see in the news. With everything priced under $10,000, the Affordable Art Fair is the perfect place to get into the art market at the ground floor.

Supporting Australian artists, galleries, and art lovers alike, Affordable Art Fair Sydney is sure to be an incredible event this week. Even if you don’t find a piece you love, the sheer breadth of art from emerging and renowned artists on display will make a visit worthwhile! Ticket prices range from $13–$45 and the fair will run from Thursday June 2 until Sunday June 5, so there’s plenty of opportunity to visit this bustling microcosm of the art world.
