Liverpool Art Fair celebrates its 10th anniversary


Liverpool Art Fair is marking its 10th anniversary with a seven-week show at the Royal Liver Building this summer.

This year’s event, which opens on June 28, features original work from more than 200 artists who are based within a 35-mile radius of the city.

Entry is free, and artworks cost from £20 to £2,000 with many of them in the ‘under £200’ price bracket.

The works on show were chosen by a judging panel after an open submission call which attracted almost 400 applicants.

The art fair is an annual event which aims to showcase a wide range of affordable original art from a large number of local artists.

Organisers dot-art say it provides a unique insight into the region’s creative talent and offers everyone, from seasoned collectors to first-time art buyers, the opportunity to own a piece of Liverpool’s art world.

Since it first began, the annual fair has welcomed around 55,000 art lovers and has showcased the work of almost 2,0000 artists.

Along with the artwork being on display and for sale, the seven-week fair will also stage a programme of events, in partnership with the Business and Intellectual Property Centre (BIPC) which are designed to support artists in starting and growing their businesses, and creative workshops with Cass Art.

And there is a return for the Liverpool Art Fair People’s Choice Award which allows visitors to vote for their favourite artist until early August ,with the winner receiving a prize package which includes vouchers from Cass Art and an artist showcase with The Guide.

Liverpool Art Fair is at the Royal Liver Building from June 28 to August 18 and is open from noon to 6pm Tuesday to Sunday. Entry is free.
