Artists from Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Italy, Canada, the United States, Cuba, Egypt, Finland, France, Hungary, Israel, Iran, Jamaica, Ireland, Poland, The Philippines, Bangladesh, Turkey, Korea, China and Japan, about 250 in all, presented their works for sale at the fair. Panel discussions were also held, and included presentations by 2007 Drawing & Painting alumni Gareth Bate and Stanzie Tooth.
