"Celebrating 10 years of the Edinburgh Art Fair"
"Painting is just another way of keeping a diary."
“Edinburgh isn’t so much a city, more a way of life.... ”
"All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better."
"Great things are done by a series of small things brought together."
"Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures."
“Who indeed that has once seen Edinburgh, but must see it again in dreams waking or sleeping?”
"This world is but a canvas to our imagination."
”The most beautiful of all the capitals of Europe.”
"A picture is a poem without words."
“Probably the most beautiful city we have ever seen.”
"If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced."
"Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile."
"If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint."
"We have art in order not to die of the truth."
"The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude."
"If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him."
"Edina! Scotia's darling seat!"
"Good artists copy, great artists steal."
"Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable."
"If I'm free, it's because I'm always running."
"Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others."
The 10th anniversary EAF was a huge success bringing enjoyment to more than twelve and a half thousand visitors over the weekend. This was our most successful show yet and we would like to thank everyone who exhibited, visited, viewed and bought, for making it so. We look forward to hopefully seeing you all next year at the 11th annual EAF which will take place at the Corn Exchange from Friday 13th - Sunday 15th November 2015.
