Liverpool Art Fair 2019 – Call for Artist Submissions

Liverpool Art Fair 2019 – Call for Artist Submissions

Liverpool Art Fair is back for an eighth year in the summer of 2019 in an exciting new venue and we need YOU!

We are bringing Liverpool Art Fair into the heart of the city centre thanks to our new partnership with Liverpool’s most stylish designer shopping mall, Metquarter. This exciting new venue, which also recently welcomed the sophisticated Everyman Cinema, will allow us to hold our longest event yet, running for 80 days from mid-June. We want to offer visitors the best possible range of locally sourced, affordable art work, so we need artists from across the region to get involved.

We will be open to the public 7 days a week, from 14th June– 1st September 2019. Entry is FREE!

Liverpool Art Fair is an annual event which started in 2012, aiming to showcase a wide range of affordable original art by a plethora of local artists; providing a unique insight into the region’s creative talent and the opportunity for everyone, from seasoned collector to first time art buyer, to own their own piece of the Liverpool art world.

Liverpool Art Fair was launched in May 2012 as part of the inaugural Liverpool Art Month, at the then brand new Camp and Furnace, which again hosted the event in 2013. In 2014 we moved to The Gallery Liverpool, where the event was held for three years. In 2017, we were invited to relocate to the Pier Head and also grew from a 4 day to a 10 week event. We held very successful events here for two years, in a purpose-built gallery constructed from five shipping containers, welcoming over 40000 visitors, showcasing the work of over 100 local artists each year and selling hundreds of art works to customers from across the region, the country and the world!

Liverpool Art Fair 2019 will take place for eleven weeks across the summer, in an exciting new exhibition space within Metquarter in the heart of Liverpool’s shopping district.

This is an open submission event, and we are inviting all artists based within a 35 mile radius of Liverpool, to submit work for inclusion.
