"I had such a great time at The Other Art Fair. I met a lot of exciting artists and got valuable feedback on my work, as well as contacts from galleries, fashion labels, and design agencies. Well worth it." 

Grant Stewart

“[The Other Art Fair] is an amazing gateway to many opportunities for artists. Gallery directors, curators, collectors, fellow artists or everyday buyers – they're all there. The few days could get quite intense, especially during busy hours, but it offers a glimpse of the art industry and market in Sydney, which is amazing not just for participating artists but for goers as well." 

Agus Wijaya

“It really has been an honour to be selected and involved with 'The Other Art Fair'. I can't think of any other platform that gives you the opportunity to meet face to face with the public, network with other artists and sell directly to customer's invested and interested in your art on this scale. I highly recommend 'The Other Art Fair' to fellow artist's and friends and they've also had great experiences. Looking forward to trying different markets of the Art Fair in the future." 

Jennifer Lia

“I had such a wonderful experience at TOAF. I met so many art lovers, buyers, Interior stylists, other artists over the four days! I feel really inspired and can wait to paint and forge ahead with my art business!"
