This seems to be the season for art fairs with the Affordable, London and International varieties having taken place over the last few months. So what does Pick Me Up offer that distinguishes it from the rest?

Pick Me Up focuses solely on the often overlooked genre of contemporary graphic art. Unlike other art fairs it runs for 11 days rather than the industry standard of an extended weekend, so you've got plenty of time to check it out.

Many galleries and artists take part and prints will be available from as little as £10. Events and workshops will help unleash your inner artist, so you can make the transition from browsing to creating.

The Pick Me Up: Contemporary Graphic Art fair is at Somerset House, 22 March–1 April. Admission is £8, £6 for concessions.

A lot of the products are £50 or less. I bought one for £17 - bargain.
