The Borders Art Fair is organised by Border Arts Development C.I.C. - a not for profit organisation, which has been set up to run the Borders Art Fair as well as other events which help to promote new and existing creative talent in, and from, the area.

We aim to promote new and existing creative talent in the Borders and beyond, through our flagship annual event, The Borders Art Fair, and by creating opportunities for artists to exhibit in different locations throughout the year.


We would also like to thank everyone who has given us advice, feedback and support to grow the Borders Art Fair into an event we can all be proud of. If you, or anyone else you know of, is interested in getting involved and helping us out in any way, we would love to hear from you.


Our Directors are passionate about the Borders and are committed to promoting all the fantastic creativity which can be found in this beautiful part of the country.  We are thrilled to be supported by the following patrons who share that vision.
