Liverpool Art Fair returns to city waterfront
Liverpool Art Fair returns to the city’s waterfront this summer with a new home inside the Royal Liver Building.
The event, running from June 30 to August 20, aims to showcase the talents of regional artists and give people the chance to collect a piece of affordable artwork.
Work from creatives based within a 35-mile radius of the city will be on show and available to buy, with prices ranging from £20 to £2,000. There is a large section of work under and around the £200 mark.
More than 300 artists applied to take part in the event, with a judging panel whittling the entries down to a record-breaking 175. They include paintings, prints and sculptures in a wide range of styles.
The annual Liverpool Art Fair was launched in 2012 by dot-art and was originally held at Camp and Furnace. In 2017 it moved to a purpose-built space on the waterfront, made from shipping containers, and in 2019 it relocated to the MetQuarter where it ran for 80 days.
This is the first time it has been held since the Covid pandemic.
Lucy Byrne, managing director of dot-art, said: “We’re over the moon to be bringing back Liverpool Art Fair after a pandemic-enforced break, and to be in the city’s most iconic building is the icing on the cake.
“The response from the creative community has been incredibly positive, and we can’t wait to share their amazing artwork with locals and tourists alike this summer.”
Liverpool Art Fair is at the Royal Liver Building from June 30 to August 20, Tuesday to Sunday from noon to 6pm. More details HERE
