Rotterdam International Art Fair to feature talented artists from around the world

Rotterdam, designated Cultural Capital of Europe, is preparing to welcome talented artists from around the world when it hosts the Rotterdam International Art Fair, a first by the reputable Global Art Agency. This two day art extravaganza, which takes place 12th to 13th September 2014, is a showcase of modern and contemporary art in the beautiful setting of the city’s only remnant of the medieval “De Laurenskerk”.

Are you an Art Collector, or have you ever dreamt of owning your own enviable art collection? Or, maybe you’re just looking for a little something to brighten up your living room? Either way, Rotterdam International Art Fair is just the place for the best selection of photographs, illustrations, paintings, sculpture and bespoke crafts.

With more than 150 exhibitors from 23 countries showcasing a wide variety of contemporary works for sale at the inaugural Rotterdam International Art Fair. The organisers’ entrepreneurial approach give collectors a unique opportunity to buy directly from the artist at an affordable price – and artists the means to bypass the middleman through one-on-one commission-free sales to buyers.

“Our concept is to connect art with art,” explains Joelle Dinnage, director of organisers Global Art Agency. “There’s no better way to see contemporary art from around the world than in a venue with personality in a city of culture.”

The Rotterdam International Art FAir is well represented too alongside the best of the international and emerging talent on show. A previous exhibitor ‘Kieran Stiles’ who exhibited at the recent Oxford International Art Fair, also organised by the Global Art Agency, has been extremely impressed by the success. “For me, being able to meet artists like this personally, see them at work and hear the stories behind their creations is what really makes this event truly special.”

If the success of the Global Art Agency outing is anything to go by, their Rotterdam International Art Fair event at the Laurenskerk, will be no doubt another great success, so if you must-have work from your new favourite artist, pencil the dates into your diaries 12th & 13th September 2014.
