Now let's over to Belgium... Where the Brussels Accessible Art Fair captivates Contemporary Art fans.
 
The event has brought more than fifty different-style artworks, along with the debuts of designers' latest creations.
 
The sumptuous halls of the "Cercle de Lorraine", at the heart of Brussels, are the setting for this year's edition of the Accessible Art Fair.
 
As the name suggests, this fair offers to people an opportunity to make directly concerned by the work of the artists.
 
SOUNDBITE: STEPHANIE MANASSEH, Founding Director of BAAF
"Here, we showcase the artist not the galleries."
 
According to the organizers, the artists here can share or sell their works only by meeting a discerning audience.

"We have a few young galleries, that we want to give an opportunity also to participate but we give an opportunity really to the artist to show the work and as you see every stand is given to one artist."
 
50 artists, photographers, painters, sculptors, and galleries are on board, putting not just their work, but their expertise at the disposal of visitors.
 
Many of them are browsing the arts market for the first time.
 
SOUNDBITE: KUNTY MOUREAU, Art expert
"The 2014 Edition is unique because it integrates for the first time a design pavilion and shows the young Belgian creation to encompass all styles of design, furniture design which is found in small quantity production, design that joins the art gallery with unique pieces, but especially we discover young designers, that are emerging."
 
Every year the organizers welcome some returning artists from the previous fairs giving the visitors a chance to witness the evolution of their work.

"This is the 5th time I participate in this event and each time it was a big success for me because I see that for every event it brings a lot of people and, people are smiling and seem to appreciate what they see so I thought why not to participate again to this new edition."
