What is IGN Art Fair?
Art collectors, the art-loving public and those interested to learn more about arts offerings in Newcastle - come along to the IGN Art Fair, presenting a showcase of the very best commercial art spaces and artist-run initiatives from across the Newcastle region. Enjoy the Gallery's current exhibitions while also perusing displays from ten of the region's most well-known independent art spaces. Talk directly to artists and gallery directors and get a taste of the different flavour of each of these spaces all at once. You can even purchase works of art directly from the commercial galleries and artists-run spaces.

You will also be able to meet the Youth Reference Group - a group of 6 young people, aged 18-30, who are helping to provide a youth perspective on Newcastle Art Gallery's cultural offerings.
