Thank you to everyone who made the inaugural edition of The Other Art Fair Bristol such a success! We were delighted to see so many visitors at the fair and hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

As the sun sparkled over the harbour on Friday, we threw open the doors of the magnificent Arnolfini for our Private View and unveiled the work of our 70 talented emerging artists. 

Alongside an array of photography, paintings, prints and sculpture, visitors enjoyed a diverse programme of features: screenings of award-winning short films from our friends at Encounters Film Festival with a highlight selection of 'Children's Award' running throughout Sunday; mouse taxidermy classes for our most fearless visitors led by the talented Elle Kaye, an exclusive print from Emin International, creative fun with Gavin Turk and his educational charity House of Fairy Tales, the launch of a print from Bristol's own Sickboy with Print Club Bristol and much more. 

Thank you to all of our artists and sponsors and, of course, thank you to all of our visitors who welcomed us to Bristol with such enthusiasm.

We will return to the Arnolfini in June 2016. Follow @TOAF_Bristol for updates!
