The Inner West Art Fair is a ground-breaking event that celebrates both emerging and established artists, providing them with an exceptional platform to showcase and sell their artworks in the vibrant Inner West arts community. The fair takes place at the prestigious The Substation in Newport, which further solidifies its significance within the thriving arts industry.

The Inner West Art Fair has made a conscious decision not to charge any sales commission on artworks sold. The fair embraces the belief that artists should be rewarded for their talent and hard work without any deductions. This unique commitment sets the Inner West Art Fair apart from conventional art fairs and reinforces its dedication to the artistic community.

The Inner West Art Fair encourages the participation of First Nations artists, as well as emerging and established artists of all mediums, across Australia. It serves as an exceptional opportunity for artists to engage with the Inner West community and exhibit their work in a fair that offers a distinctive experience within Inner West Melbourne.

The fair aims to shine a spotlight on the Inner West as a burgeoning and dynamic area of Melbourne, renowned for its rich history, thriving arts scene, and a plethora of restaurants, cafes, and shops that wholeheartedly support this extraordinary event.

Mark your calendars for the exciting three-day art extravaganza, taking place on the weekend of November 24-26, 2023. It promises to be an exciting and immersive experience that celebrates the creativity and talent of artists from all walks of life.
