Established in 2001, Arte in Europa, Contemporary Art Dealers and Events Management, are sole agents in the UK for a number of artists living and working in Italy.
In November 2005, we launched Edinburgh's first ever contemporary art fair with 50 galleries from Great Britain, Ireland, and Spain exhibiting.
The Contemporary Art Fair Edinburgh or, Cafe, as it was known, opened at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange to an appreciative audience and, although beset with teething problems, created enough interest and enthusiasm to warrant a second outing in 2006.
It was decided however, that the fair should be renamed the Edinburgh Art Fair to appeal to a wider audience and, as it proved to be the case, we have stuck with the name and are now looking forward to our 9th year.
The fair, now firmly established as Scotland's largest annual art show, has to date introduced over 300 galleries and 5000 artists to the 75,000 plus visitors that we have so far attracted.
We hope to keep bringing you the finest young talent and, the established big name artists that we have had the pleasure to show, for many more years to come and, look forward to welcoming everyone to the 2013 Edinburgh Art Fair.
Our team are;
Andy McDougall, Fair Director
