The Very Very Rare Affordable Art Fair, formerly known as "Got Art? The Affordable Art Show", has been seeking the best under-represented artists and promoting affordable art since 2001. With only two (!) shows (!) per (!) year (!!), each features different emerging, established, and under-represented artists working in all sizes, mediums, and styles.
Our mission is to create new collectors by exciting them with accessible art presented in an unpretentious environment, showcasing previously exhibited works of established artists and new works by emerging talent.
