2021 Art Fairs: virtually the same but different

The art fairs of 2021 are booking up and a lot has changed since we posted their updates this time last year.

After a year of digital exploration for the art world, new and improved virtual methods of exhibiting have been adopted to ensure visitors always have artworks to explore. It seems this year we get the best of both worlds; 2021 is taking place online and in real life.

So whether you still prefer to browse and buy from home or are eager to get out there in the gallery, our Own Art Fairs will be able to cater to you and invite you into their world of art.

The Other Art Fair, London

1 – 4 July 2021

Enjoy art differently and explore original art direct from the artists and just a click away. The Other Art Fair offer a calendar of virtual editions, so you can explore artwork from all around the world whilst sitting comfortably in your living room – completely COVID-safe.

Alternatively, a much safer and socially distanced 2021 invites you to book tickets to The Other Art Fair IN REAL LIFE! So if you want to get out of your leisurewear and explore the art on the actual, physical walls, then book your slot now:

Roy’s Art Fair, London
