AUSTIN, TX.- Affordable Art Fair sets sights on thriving art scene in Austin, Texas as new fair destination.

Affordable Art Fair will set foot in Austin for the first time from Thursday May 16 to Sunday May 19, 2024 at the Palmer Events Center in the heart of downtown Austin. The fair will bring together a curated selection of over 50 local and international galleries to inspire and unify the citywide art scene.

Affordable Art Fair is a contemporary art fair that offers extraordinary artwork created by emerging and established talent in a range of media and genres priced up to $10,000. The fair has welcomed over 3.1 million visitors worldwide since its launch in 1999. As one of the world’s leading and most popular art fairs, Affordable Art Fair is dedicated to creating an accessible, vibrant, and approachable entry-point to the contemporary art market for enthusiasts, collectors, and the art-curious alike.

Following 33 successful editions in New York City, Affordable Art Fair’s venture into the Texan capital stems from a long standing admiration for Austin’s flourishing art scene, and will build upon the local arts calendar and deliver its largest annual art event.

Affordable Art Fair’s second stateside location will be led by newly appointed director Cori Teague, local artist, arts professional, and advocate for the growing Austin art market.

“People gravitate to Austin for its unique character, inclusivity, and vibrant spirit and these values align to those of the Affordable Art Fair. My mission is to create a dynamic platform to enrich the city’s artistic knowledge, foster a sense of community, and educate collectors and galleries from our backyard. Fundamentally, we aim to create a fun, must-see event where people can discover the joy of collecting art. The future of the art scene in this city is bright, and we are thrilled to be at the forefront of this transformative journey,” commented Cori Teague, Director of Affordable Art Fair Austin.

The Affordable Art Fair taps into the buzz of the local art scene by collaborating with the established art community and providing home-grown talent with a new way to reach a wide audience.

The Wally Workman Gallery, an established contemporary gallery based in downtown Austin, offered the following statement:

“The Affordable Art Fair attracts welcoming and approachable galleries showing high quality work at reasonable prices, which the Wally Workman Gallery strongly believes in. We are excited to exhibit in a Fair with like-minded people and share our artists with the new as well as the experienced art collectors that Affordable Art Fair engages through their high-quality and global programming.”

Visitors can expect an exciting array of galleries showcasing thousands of pieces by top emerging and established contemporary artists, all under one roof. With artworks priced from $100 up to $10,000, there’s something to catch the eye of every art-enthusiast, whether a seasoned collector, first time buyer, or design lover.

Born in Orange County, California, Cori Teague studied at FIDM Los Angeles before moving to Texas to complete her BFA at Baylor University. From a young age, Teague explored her fascination with the arts through textiles, using the human form as a canvas by designing clothing before shifting her focus to the complex layers of figurative oil paintings. After refining her love for visual arts in college, she dove into every opportunity to learn the art industry, affording her roles in well-established galleries across Laguna Beach, Beverly Hills, and Austin.

Since moving back to Texas in 2017, Teague has made noteworthy contributions to the art world as a gallery director, curator, event planner, and successful commercial artist. Teague joins Affordable Art Fair from her most recent position at Soco Modern Art Gallery as Art Gallery Director. With a keen eye for talent and a deep passion for the arts, Teague has consistently demonstrated an unwavering commitment to fostering creativity, promoting artists, and creating engaging artistic experiences.

An artist herself, Teague understands the needs of contemporary artists and the evolution of Austin’s rich and layered art scene. Her visionary leadership and dedication to breaking barriers make her an instrumental figure in shaping the future of Austin's art scene.
