EAF2016 takes place from Friday 18th – Sunday 20th November 2016 at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange, New Market Road, EH14 1RJ. Now in our 12th year we are excited to be returning with 60 + galleries from the UK, Ireland and abroad. The EAF is now established and known worldwide for its professional but laid back approach to making art accessible to everyone.

We will once again be organising a series of artist talks and demonstrations, children's arts and crafts classes, open easel still life painting sessions, and live art displays, for the benefit and entertainment of our visitors. The children's classes are extremely popular and enable parents and guardians the opportunity to view the Fair knowing that their child is being looked after.
“I have been an exhibitor at EAF basically since it started and keep coming back! The organisation is great and over the years I have seen the fair develop into what is now an exciting event in the arts calendar. Each year we are delighted to welcome back existing customers, but always love to meet new clients. A fantastic art fair!” Claire Gilfedder, Alpha Art, Edinburgh.
“2015 was my fifth time at the Edinburgh Art Fair and the best yet. The fair continues to attract exhibitors of the highest quality with a huge variety of artists from across the globe. The event retains a very loyal following from across southern and central Scotland - footfall was better than ever. The new Friday night evening session was well attended and even the traditionally difficult Friday day slot was busy throughout. I have no hesitation is recommending the fair to galleries and visitors alike and am already looking forward to returning myself in 2016.” Matt Piper, Eleven and a Half, London.
“This was my first time exhibiting at the Edinburgh Art Fair. It was an extremely well organised, friendly, professional event and a great platform to promote my new gallery. I am looking forward to returning in 2016.” Tommy Fitchet, Saorsa Art Gallery, Edinburgh.
“2016 will find us returning for our 3rd EAF. For us it is a fair that has never let us down, it works on all levels, fantastic organisation, very good footfall, excellent sales and good contacts but with an added warmth from a behind the scenes team who work so hard to make sure everything is beyond right. Easy parking, good storage, strong and sturdy stands and a well selected range of art - all in a beautiful city.” Stef & Ian Mitchell, Staithes Studios Gallery, Yorkshire.
“I have attended many art fairs and I found the organisers for The Edinburgh Art fair highly motivated, skilful and very attentive to the gallery needs. I found the art fair well attended and there was a great atmosphere. I will definitely attend this art fair on an annual basis.” Denise Donnelly, The Doorway Gallery, Dublin.
