Accessible Art Fair in Brussels Takes Off

October 7, 2011

The Brus­sels Acces­si­ble Art Fair returns to the Con­rad Brus­sels Hotel (Ave. Louise) from Fri­day 28 until Sun­day 30 Octo­ber. The Acces­si­ble Art Fair fea­tures fifty emerg­ing and estab­lished artists from Bel­gium, Europe and fur­ther afield.

An inde­pen­dent panel of judges has care­fully selected the artists on the basis of their tal­ent for cre­at­ing beau­ti­ful art­works at prices that the pub­lic can afford. Think of the Acces­si­ble Art Fair as a bou­tique – a care­fully selected col­lec­tion of orig­i­nal art­works and the oppor­tu­nity for you the pub­lic to meet the artists and buy the art.

BAAF and the Euro­pean Commission

For the Octo­ber edi­tion of the fair, we’re pleased to host a pho­to­graphic exhi­bi­tion pre­sented by the Euro­pean Commission’s Direc­torate Gen­eral for Health and Con­sumers, which will fea­ture images from all over the world.

The exhi­bi­tion is com­posed of the win­ning entries of a recent pho­to­graphic com­pe­ti­tion, which cel­e­brates 2011 as World Vet­eri­nary Year. The main objec­tive of the com­pe­ti­tion is to high­light the incred­i­bly diverse role that vet­eri­nar­i­ans play around the world. Not only do vet­eri­nar­i­ans look after your fam­ily pet, they’re an inte­gral part in pro­tect­ing human health by con­tribut­ing to food secu­rity, food safety, ani­mal wel­fare and many other often unrec­og­nized areas.

How does this mesh with Brus­sels Acces­si­ble Art Fair? As the say­ing goes, a pic­ture says a thou­sand words. As art lovers, we feel that the best way to explain the impor­tance of vet­eri­nar­i­ans is through illus­tra­tion, and we want to help present these pho­tos to our vis­i­tors, who can fully appre­ci­ate the pho­tos from an artist perspective.
