23 – 26 May 2014
Liverpool Art Fair returns for the third year to the thriving Baltic Triangle over the spring bank holiday weekend. Come along and experience the work of some of the region’s most talented visual artists, and with prices starting at just £20 you won’t leave empty handed!
Liverpool Art Fair is an annual four day event which aims to showcase a wide range of affordable original art by a plethora of local artists and develop the art market in the city region. It provides a unique overview of the area’s creative talent and offers the opportunity for everyone, from seasoned collector to first time art buyer, to take home 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 the fair has showcased the work of almost 100 artists, selected from hundreds of submissions. As we go into the third year of the event, Liverpool Art Fair is becoming a key annual event in the arts calendar of the North West.
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. The selection panel, which includes Angela Samata (Project Manager,
John Moores Painting Prize), Laura Davies (Assistant Head of Content, Liverpool Echo and former Arts Editor, The Liverpool Post) and Jason Jones (Fine Artist and Gallery Manager, The Cornerstone Gallery) then had the difficult task of deciding which artists’ work would be part of this year’s event.
Liverpool Art Fair 2014 will take place The Gallery Liverpool, Stanhope Street and will once again show work by talented artists from across the region, working in all media and styles. All work in the fair is priced under £2000 and the ever popular under £200 section will return, ensuring there is something on offer for all pockets.
