About

Liverpool Art Fair is back for a seventh year in the summer of 2018!

For 10 weeks in 2017, Liverpool Art Fair, as part of Pier Head Village, took up residence on the iconic Liverpool Waterfront, in the shadow of the Port of Liverpool Building and the Museum of Liverpool. The event was a huge success, welcoming over 25000 visitors, showcasing the work of over 100 local artists in a purpose-built gallery constructed from five shipping containers and selling hundreds of art works to customers from across the region, the country and the world! After the huge success of our move to the Pier Head, we will once again be taking up residence on Liverpool Waterfront this summer. 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!

We will be open to the public from 12-7pm, 7 days a week, from 6th July – 2nd September 2018. Entry is FREE!

Liverpool Art Fair

Background:

Liverpool Art Fair is an annual event started in 2012, which aims to showcase a wide range of affordable original art by a plethora of local artists; providing a unique insight into the region’s creative talent and 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. In 2014 we moved to The Gallery Liverpool, where the event was held for three years. Last year, for our sixth fair, we were invited to relocate to the Pier Head and grow from a 4 day to a 10 week event.

Organisers:

Liverpool Art Fair is organised by dot-art, a Liverpool based arts organisation which supports visual artists and champions art as an integral part of everyday life.

They do this by selling locally sourced, affordable art, working with businesses to put art in the workplace and public realm, running art classes and working with schools and community groups. All this is underpinned by a unique membership scheme for artists in the North West which gives access to all the activities above and a package of support and advice, creating and developing artists’ careers.

dot-art was founded in Liverpool in 2006 and specialises in affordable, high quality, locally sourced art. They work with over 100 artists to provide an unrivalled choice of original art and limited edition prints for home or business, as well as offering a range of complementary services including; commissions, art rental, art consultancy, exhibition planning and implementation, bespoke framing, art valuation and restoration and artist sourcing.

All dot-art’s work supports their not-for profit arm, dot-art Services CIC, which exists to support North-West based visual artists, both emerging and established, through a range of services and opportunities designed to help them develop their careers and gain exposure and promotion for their work, as well as delivering a programme of art classes at Liverpool’s creative hub the Bluecoat; and dot-art Schools, our innovative inter school art competition, launched in 2012.
