Utterly Art will be participating in this fun four-day event as one of 86 galleries amidst a huge array of contemporary art at the F1 Pit Building. The concept is simple, yet unique: an inspiring and friendly atmosphere in which you can find thousands of original paintings, prints, sculpture and photography all under one roof, and all between SG $100 and SG $10,000, with 75% priced below SG $7,500. The works of young, emerging artists hang alongside some of the biggest household names, while the Young Talents exhibition provides a chance to snap up a future masterpiece.
There are FOUR paddocks on TWO levels this year, and our booth is at 3G-15 in the Green Room on Level 3. Entering Level 3 externally, we should be visible straight ahead as the largest booth at 42sqm with 36 artists. Very limited free passes for two to the Private View and Arty-licious Party are available in our gallery on a first-come, first-served basis.
