Glasgow is hosting the third of what has become a major date in the cultural calendar with the staging of the Glasgow Contemporary Art Fair this weekend at iconic venue, The Old Fruitmarket on the 28th, 29th and 30th of April featuring hundreds of galleries, artists, printmakers and art collective.
Organiser Gerry Muldoon of GM Events says: “Following last year’s successful event, we will again be featuring some of the best known galleries and artists from the Central Belt, exhibitors from all over Scotland and several from further afield will be present. Exhibition space sold out very quickly indeed and again we have a waiting list.”
The GCAF has an multi functional app this year which allows buyers to save their favourites, message a gallery or artist directly and buy any artwork directly through the app whenever the mood strikes, days, weeks or months after the fair. Just search for “Glasgow Contemporary Art Fair.” in your app store.

The opening times are:
Friday 28th April 6 pm – 9 pm
Saturday 29th April 10 am – 6 pm
Sunday 30th April 10 am – 5 pm.
Friday night is a preview evening costing £9 plus booking fee but you get live music and a glass of fizz on arrival.
The Saturday and Sunday will cost just £3 per adult with children under 15 going free.
