Liverpool Art Fair logo - affordable art for all

ABOUT

Liverpool Art Fair is an exciting open submission selling event, designed to connect local artists with new art buyers on a large scale, break down barriers, and make affordable art accessible to all.

Liverpool Art Fair was launched in May 2012 as part of the inaugural Liverpool Art Month. Since then we have showcased almost 1000 new artworks by some of the region's most talented artists, to thousands of art lovers, providing a unique insight into the region's creative talent. Liverpool Art Fair is free to visit ans aims to showcase a wide range of affordable original art and develop the art market in the city region.

We are delighted to announce that Liverpool Art Fair is back for a sixth year, bigger and better than ever before! In 2017, the event will be part of the Pier Head Village and take place in a purpose built art gallery on Liverpool Waterfront for the entire summer, giving talented local artists the opportunity the showcase their work to a huge audience of locals and tourists.
