BTO headline sponsor of Edinburgh Art Fair for second year

23 November 2018

Leading independent Scottish law firm BTO Solicitors is proud to be headline sponsor of the prestigious Edinburgh Art Fair (EAF) for a second year. The 14th annual Fair, now the largest of its kind in the UK outside of London, is running from Friday 23 – Sunday 25 November at Edinburgh Corn Exchange.

The Edinburgh Art Fair is Scotland’s longest running modern and contemporary Art Fair and caters for a range of preferences by promoting high quality original artworks from over 500 emerging and established artists. This year, galleries from Denmark, South Korea and China join those from around the UK and Ireland.

Having established itself as Scotland’s premier art fair, the event is expected to attract over 13,000 visitors this weekend and more than 3,500 artworks in media such as paint, sculpture, ceramics and glass will be available to purchase. Past events have seen over one thousand artworks sold each year with a combined selling price of over £1m realised most years. As well as members of the general public, visitors will include collectors and dealers, curators and gallerists, critics and arts correspondents.

BTO is experienced in sponsoring the arts having supported several projects organised by Art in Healthcare, a charity which it has sponsored for the last three years and the leading arts provider for health organisations in Scotland.

Alan Borthwick, chairman at BTO, commented: “BTO Solicitors is delighted to sponsor the Edinburgh Art Fair which is now an important addition to the Scottish cultural calendar and an excellent platform for showcasing art work from leading modern and contemporary art galleries from within the UK and abroad.”

“The Edinburgh Art Fair is also a very inclusive event which encourages promising artists of all ages through the provision of artist demonstrations, talks and art classes for children.”

With artwork prices starting at around £100 and stretching to around £100,000, there is something to suit every budget. There is also an open easel station giving attendees the opportunity to create their own masterpiece under the guidance of staff from the Edinburgh Art Shop.

Facilities include a professional and complimentary crèche service catering for children aged from 1-12, as well as an onsite bar and restaurant offering refreshments.
