We are delighted to announce that we will be at the eighth AAF on the 8th and the 9th of September 2018. The event will be held at the city’s iconic Beach Ballroom venue and will host exhibitors that include some of the finest galleries and artists from across Scotland and the UK including household names, celebrity artists, award winning local creatives and a wonderful selection of new and emerging artists. Visitors can expect to see a wide range of new exciting work fresh to the North East of Scotland and with prices now from £50 to £30,000 and over we aim to offer something for every taste and budget.
This year we are bringing the Peacock Visual Arts workshop on to the stage at the Aberdeen Art Fair! We will be bringing taster workshops for you to try out, showcasing some of the wonderful open access facilities that are available within our workshops. The stage will be host to a range of activities, and full of information detailing our upcoming shows and events.
Gerry Muldoon of organisers GM Events commented;
“I am delighted that TAQA will again be supporting what has become a regular fixture on the north east’s cultural calendar and also that we will be returning to the Beach Ballroom which has been our home for the past two years.
Like any responsible organisation, we are constantly looking at ways to reduce the toll on the environment and plastic is, of course, one of the major contributors to the burning of fossil fuels, the cutting down of trees and, in cases, the use of unfair labour practices. Reusable bags save both flora and fauna and help cut down on the emission of dangerous greenhouse gases.
Also new for this year, on the stage we will have a performance and demonstration area curated by Peacock Visual Arts.”
The opening times are as follows – Saturday 8th September 10 am – 5.30 pm; Sunday 9th September 10 am – 5 pm.
Entrance fees on the Saturday and Sunday will be just £4 per adult with concessions at £3 and children under 15 free of charge (must be accompanied by an adult).
