Seattle’s Affordable Art Fair Opens

The Seattle edition of the Affordable Art Fair opened on November 8, 2012, in the Exhibition Hall, at the Seattle Center. The Fair runs through November 11. Fifty exhibitors are showing works of art. Most are from the United States, but others are from as far away as Ecuador and Japan. Beautifully set-up for the event, I’ve never seen the Exhibition Hall look so appealing. I'll visit the Fair again and recommend that you take a look, as well.

Several other audience members were also asked into the action.
