Art in Healthcare at Edinburgh Art Fair: visual artist presentations call for entries

Art in Healthcare is one of the main charities supported by Edinburgh Art Fair and will have a stand at the Fair this year at the Corn Exchange Friday 13th – Sunday 15th November 2015. In addition to promoting the activities of Art in Healthcare and selling work from our stand, our presence will include the presentation of artist talks and demonstrations. This year we are seeking to work with a number of artists who would be willing to do a 40 minute presentation over the weekend as part of an open access programme for visitors to the Art Fair. The Art in Healthcare presence is designed to fundraise for our charity and we will not be able to pay a fee for these presentations. However, in exchange for providing a presentation free of charge, Art in Healthcare will offer the opportunity to sell artwork on our stand at a reduced Art in Healthcare commission fee of 30%. The Edinburgh Art Fair is a high profile event with over 12,000 people attending over the weekend. Artists who wish to be considered for this opportunity should submit information to Submissions should include a small selection of images and/or link to a web address where artwork can be viewed, a brief outline of a proposed talk/demonstration and any other relevant information such as CV. The deadline for submission is 31st August 2015.
