After a hugely successful launch event on Thursday evening, Liverpool Art Fair 2023 at the Royal Liver Building is now open to the public!
The event, which is free to attend, is open from 30th June to 20th August, Tuesday to Sunday, 12-6pm. Visitors will be able to view an amazing array of paintings, sculptures and prints on display in this iconic space, by a record 175 local artists, starting at just £20.
Liverpool Art Fair is an annual event, aiming 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.
The events programme starts this Saturday (1st July) with the first of seven weekly free creative workshops led by our partners Cass Art; this week we have “A Beginners Guide to Portraits”. These sessions are suitable for ages 12 and over and free tickets can be booked via our website.
On Saturday 15th July at 3pm we have our first event for art lovers, people new to buying art or just those wanting to find out a bit more about the art on display. A Beginners Guide to Abstract Art is an informal guided tour by one of our friendly staff, around the non-representational artwork that can be found in Liverpool Art Fair. Free tickets can be booked via our website.
Then on Tuesday 18th July we have the first of our programme of events for artists in partnership with the BIPC (Business and Intellectual Property Centre); Price, Promotion, Protection. This event is designed to give visual artists the tools they need to start or build their professional careers. Hear what support is available across the Liverpool City Region from a range of speakers and gain practical advice and tips on protecting your creative work and intellectual property from specialist solicitor Frances McEntegart. This event will have limited ticket numbers, but free tickets will again be available via our website.
More events will be announced over the summer so keep an eye on the Liverpool Art Fair socials!
