It is a coming of age celebration for Oxton Art Fair on the weekend of November 30, 2019 as it turns sweet 16.

This year at the Williamson Art Gallery there will be 23 professional and semi-professional artists and friends who will gather together for a pre-Christmas showcasing of their work across three gallery rooms.

Our members and annual guests will present a diverse mix of interesting and innovative art in the form of, photography, printmaking and painting and hand-crafted pieces including; ceramics, jewellery and textiles. Viewed as one of Wirral’s must-visit pre-festive events, it gives gift buyers and browsers a chance to chat to the artists about their work and if they choose, purchase a truly individual piece for their friends, family or home.

Family: There will be children’s art activities on throughout the weekend and refreshments for sale in the fabulous Williamson Café to help make this a truly all-round family event.

This year, the fair will be opened by Rhiannon Evans, formerly Pro-Vice Chancellor, Edge Hill University and Professor of Education, and chair of Oxton Society Committee.

Angela Samata, Winston Churchill Fellow for research into Outsider Art and former co-ordinator of the John Moores Painting Prize opened the fair last year. She said: “Having lived and worked in and around Oxton for many years, I’m constantly impressed by the creativity that finds its home here. I deeply believe that supporting living artists in their endeavours is one of the greatest things we can do and I see the Oxton Art Fair as an excellent opportunity to do just that.”
