A B O U T
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.
