Art Apart Fair
Following the highly-successful Worlds Apart Fair comes the Art Apart Fair, the only hotel art fair taking place in Singapore.
The idea of an art fair taking place in a hotel, with rooms being transformed into art galleries, is a modern and unique concept. It was started in 1994, with the first ever hotel art fair taking place in New York’s Gramercy Hotel. Now, hotel art fairs are a popping up in cities such as Seoul and Hong Kong.
This time in Singapore, visitors will get to experience the whole nine-yards of an art-viewing experience. Artists will paint right in front of your eyes on wine boxes, which, together with specially selected wines, will be auctioned. A selection of artwork will be put up for auction at the Great Art Auction, held in conjuction with the Great Singapore Sale. Veteran art collector and managing partner of Utterly Art, Dr. Pwee Keng Hock, will give a talk on how to build a collection of artwork by emerging artists for beginner art collectors. Part of the proceeds from the Art Apart Fair will go to the Lions Befrienders.
Over one hundred artists from all over the world will be showcasing their artworks in this art fair, taking place at the PARKROYAL On Pickering from the 5th to 7th of July 2013.
Tickets are priced at a mere $10. Every purchase of a ticket entitles the beholder to take part in a lucky draw that will culminate in three winners each walking away with a painting worth US$2000. We encourage all art lovers and budding art collectors to come show their support for rising artists, as well as charity, at the Art Apart Fair.
