Future Fair presents a virtual Holiday Market featuring affordable original artworks, editions, works on paper, photographs, artist books and objects under $5000.

The Future Fair Holiday Market endeavors to introduce novice and seasoned art buyers to discover and acquire artworks within a range of accessible price points. With a focus on keeping the Holiday Market a boutique experience, exhibitors will be limited to showcasing 8 works at any one time. However, editions and multiples may be unlimited. Collectors will be able to purchase works directly from the site via a built-in e-commerce capability.

The Future Fair Holiday Market is powered by IMG SRVR, an e-commerce and visual file sharing platform founded by Amani Olu that is designed to help creatives collect, organize, and share images with ease and elegance.
