As all the Superfine Art Fair, Superfine Seattle doesn’t take itself too seriously. This young show aims to promote emergent talent by throwing a spotlight on lesser-known artists and bringing them on to an international audience. The price range is broad enough to suit all kinds of budgets. Indeed, some cutting-edge pieces are offered from $100. Thus, Superfine gathers new collectors as well as seasoned buyers. Additionally many art lovers attend this lively and fun event just to admire exciting artworks. As this kind of high-quality affordable art fairs meets with a great commercial success, there are currently seven editions of Superfine Art Fair all over the United States – in San Francisco, New York, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Miami Beach, Seattle and Savannah. The Seattle fair takes place in one of the city’s iconic building – Block 41 – an industrial award winning event venue. Real art lovers will be able to connect with real artists, buy affordable art, and support great causes: 25% of your ticket purchase goes to an LGBTQ+ charity to support LGBTQ+ youth, and 90% of art is priced from $50 to $3,000.

Insights Superfine Art Fair Seattle
What would you say is the DNA of Superfine Seattle?
Our amazing local artists! As the fastest growing big city in the United States, Seattle is the epicenter of our collector audience in the Pacific Northwest and an ideal home for our unique approach – plus the Seattle artists (and global emerging artists!) who benefit from it.
What type of galleries are chosen to exhibit, and why?
The exhibiting artists, collectives, and galleries all feature emerging to mid career level artists. We attract talented artists of all levels who have chosen to take control of their art career in a big way. The fairs are primarily artist driven, making it a reliable place to make art buying accessible, artist-forward, and fun.
What is the price range of pieces? Who is the average buyer?
Most of the work in the fair ranges from $500 to $2,500. Beyond this range, we have pieces for under $300 with the minimum at $100 and our price cap is $15,000 for any one work. The typical buyer is 25-45, actively buying art for their homes. Our model ensures newer collectors can feel comfortable buying from our artists.
