Glasgow Contemporary Art Fair returns to the grounds of Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum this month.

The event will set up in the marquee outside the gallery over the weekend of May 28 and 29, with the preview evening on Friday 27 May, 6pm - 9pm.

Whether you are a seasoned collector or first time buyer, the Glasgow Contemporary Art Fair promises to have something for everyone.

Local and national artists are being showcased with works ranging from as little as £50 to over £20,000 in price.

Curated exhibitors, including galleries, independent artists and collectives, will display work available to buy.

Commissioned

These include contemporary sculpture and painting, photography, urban street art, printmaking and glassware.

A number of artists and galleries will be launching new and exclusive work at GCAF, many of which have been commissioned specially for the event.

These include Peacocks Visual Arts in Aberdeen which will launch a very modestly-priced (£100) new work by New Glasgow Boy Adrian Wiszniewski alongside new work by one of Scotland’s most highly regarded living artists, Frances Walker.

The line up includes a wealth of local and national exhibitors. Representing Glasgow will be Subversion Gallery, GSA Alumni Peter Scott, David Gilliver, Andrew Taylor and Tony Griffin (exhibiting together as the GSA Collective), Willie Sutherland, and Sarah Kudirka.

 

With the feedback that we have received it is clear that people want to see and experience art in person, to see it up close and understand the colours and textures as they really are.

Further afield, there will be Bristol's Clifton Fine Art, Edinburgh's Robertson Fine Art, Aberdeen’s Peacock Visual Arts (who will be exhibiting work by Ralph Steadman, John Byrne, Adrian Wiszniewski and more), Carlisle’s Daniel Ibbotson and London based Jim Woodman Fine Art, amongst many more.

Gerry Muldoon, event organiser, said: “Following its two year pause due to the pandemic we are looking forward to an exciting reunion with the public.

“With the feedback that we have received it is clear that people want to see and experience art in person, to see it up close and understand the colours and textures as they really are.

“Friendly and professional advice will be on hand from the geographically and creatively diverse range of exhibitors including art galleries and professional artists from across the country as well as a great range of home grown and emerging talent.

“With a new layout that allows visitors to engage with over 1200 pieces of contemporary art the Marquee at Kelvingrove Art Gallery will prove as popular as it did prior to the pandemic”
