AFFORDABLE ART FAIR HAMPSTEAD

 

Jackson’s returns for the second year to the Affordable Art Fair Hampstead to exhibit selected works from the Jackson’s Open Painting Prize 2019 shortlist. Founded by Will Ramsay in 1999, the Affordable Art Fair provides an accessible alternative to the traditional gallery scene due to its huge audience and strict price ceiling of £6,000. Over the years it has welcomed over 2.3 million visitors, sold 450,000 artworks and now holds events in 10 cities around the world. Collaborating with Affordable Art Fair Hampstead gives us the perfect platform to showcase our shortlisted entries and prize winners; exhibiting at the fair as a finalist will guarantee vast exposure and kick start artists into a new, grander chapter of their careers. This year we are honoured to welcome the Affordable Art Fair UK Regional Managing Director, Jennifer Connor, to our panel of expert judges.

"We are very honoured to once again have the opportunity to exhibit the winners of the Jackson’s Open Painting Prize 2019 at the Affordable Art Fair Hampstead. Last year’s winners were thrilled to have their work displayed amongst so many other professional paintings and galleries. There was a lot of public interaction and visitors thought that the quality of the work was exceptional. We can’t wait to see who will be the winning exhibitors this year."

– Gary Thompson, Director of Jackson's Art Supplies
