March 2013 is the month for this favourite of the art calendar as it takes over one of south London’s prettiest parks

-- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Top galleries, curious art fans and collectors alike will be delighted to confirm the return of the Affordable Art Fair to Battersea Park this March 2013.

The festival, which runs for four days from 7th -10th March, will welcome contributions from some of the top galleries in London and the world. Expecting to welcome around 22,000 people, the fair is not alone on the world stage.

There are now similar events springing up in New York, Singapore and other global locations. The appeal is simple and clear. Over 100 galleries exhibit their work at the fair, and the premise is simple: the price range is low.

With items beginning at £40 and ranging up to £4,000, it gives buyers the chance to get some truly great work for extremely low prices, allowing families a great day out and giving art fans who don't have oodles of cash the chance to own something beautiful for their homes.

Alongside all this there's a free creche, artist-led workshops, informal talks and tours, and a specialist exhibition showcasing work by new artists. Held at south London's Battersea Park, it's a lively event and one worth travelling for.
