Find nearby venues to your current location by selecting the toggle icon on the upper-right corner of your screen. artguide will find your current location and show all venues within a mile of it. This function will only work if you have allowed the app to find your current location via the prompt when you first open it. If not, you must go to 'location services' in your phone's settings and turn them on for your artguide app.

Browse special events or art fairs by choosing the appropriate tab at the bottom of the app. You may sort events and art fairs by date or name.

To select a venue from a list, click its row. To select a venue from a map, click its flag. In a venue page you will find all of its available information, including address, Web address, and other event details. Here you may map, call or e-mail a venue. Share an exhibition listing with a friend by selecting the paper-clip icon. It will generate an e-mail for you to a blank recipient with the venue and exhibition details. If a venue only has one listing, you will be brought to the exhibition page. If a venue has multiple listings, you will be brought to the venue's homepage, where you may scroll through all of its exhibitions and select which you would like to view.

When you map a specific venue, select 'directions' to get step-by-step directions to the venue from your current or other location. If there are nearby venues there will be a 'see nearby' option next to the 'directions' option. 'See nearby' will show you nearby venues from whatever list you were in, so if you choose to map a venue from an openings list, it will reveal 'show nearby openings' for that specific date.
