Collecting art made easy

Instead of splurging on another coat or pair of boots this winter, why not invest in a collectable piece of art and add a touch of warmth to your abode?

Tapping into and enjoying art need not be intimidating with Art Melbourne, Melbourne’s Affordable Art Fair. Lighting up the majestic Royal Exhibition Building in a vibrant wash of pink over four days and nights, Art Melbourne merges 80 galleries and 600 artists from around Australia and abroad.

Adding a splash of colour or introducing a thought provoking piece of artwork to your walls is made easy with this one stop gallery. As the name suggests, this fair is all about making collectable art accessible and available to suit a range of budgets. Look out for the blue dot identifying works under $1000.

Discover the next David Bromley at Start, an exclusive space designed to promote emerging and unrepresented artists or even visit David Bromley’s space at the fair. Check out Sculpt, which is presenting large-scale works by local artists adorning the entrance of the building and trickling out into the surrounding areas.
