11am – 6pm daily
Liverpool Art Fair is an open submission, selling showcase, designed to provide a public platform for the region’s artistic talent, and make affordable art accessible to everyone.
Liverpool Art Fair is a free event, taking place over the May Day bank holiday weekend and open to all, which aims to showcase a wide range of affordable original art, break down barriers and develop the art market in the city region. It provides a unique insight into the area’s creative talent and offers 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. Each year we have showcased the work of almost 100 artists, selected from hundreds of submissions. In 2014 we moved to our new home at The Gallery Liverpool, and as we go into the fourth year of the event, Liverpool Art Fair is becoming a key annual event in the arts calendar of the North West, with both audiences and sales growing year on year.
Earlier in the year, an open submission process saw artists based within a 25 mile radius of Liverpool invited to submit work for inclusion. The number of artists involved has grown year on year and we were delighted to once again see a record number of submissions. Our prestigious selection panel, which included Angela Samata (Former Project Manager, John Moores Painting Prize) and Laura Davis (Deputy Executive Editor of Brand and Agenda, Liverpool Echo and former Arts Editor, Liverpool Daily Post) then had the difficult task of deciding which artists’ work would be part of this year’s event.
This year’s show will see almost two hundred art works on display; over half of which will be in our popular “Under £200” section, and as always, all work is priced under £2000.
