The Liverpool Art Fair is an annual event dedicated to showcasing affordable original art from a diverse range of local artists. It provides a unique insight into the region’s creative talent and offers everyone, from seasoned collectors to first-time art buyers, the chance to own a piece of Liverpool’s vibrant art scene.

This year’s artists were selected from an open call, welcoming anyone based within a 35-mile radius of Liverpool to apply.

The selection panel, consisting of Sarah Lovell (Lead Officer for Culture at Liverpool City Region Combined Authority), Faith Bebbington (sculptor), Patrick Kirk-Smith (editor and director of ArtinLiverpool), and Angela Samata (arts professional and broadcaster), had the challenging task of narrowing down nearly 400 applicants to the final 200+ artists.

Throughout the seven weeks of the fair, visitors can enjoy a packed programme of events, including creative workshops in partnership with Cass Art.

There will also be a series of events designed to support artists and creatives in starting and growing their businesses, in collaboration with the Business and Intellectual Property Centre (BIPC).

The Liverpool Art Fair People’s Choice Award is returning, giving visitors the opportunity to vote for their favorite artist until early August. The winner, to be announced on 8th August, will receive a range of prizes, including vouchers from Cass Art, a stay at INNSiDE Liverpool with dinner at Gino’s, tickets to the RLB360 experience, and an Artist Showcase with media partner The Guide Liverpool.
