Are you searching for that original piece of art that lets you create a unique look at home or in the office? Art lovers can meet artists at Contemporary Art Fairs, to browse, to talk, to admire and to buy. With artwork from £40 to £4,000, and workshops and live demonstrations from leading artists and galleries. We will inspire you!

There are over 160 artists, established favourites, galleries, emerging stars, and selected new talent, both national and European. There is a wide range of styles and media, from glass to sculpture to photography, from textural abstract to realism, from fields of flowers to architectural constructs, from the extraordinary in the ordinary to the avant garde.

Enjoy the chance to speak with artists one-to-one, for a unique insight and experience of art you are going to love to live with.

You could enjoy the thrill of discovering a future star, or commission an artist to create a unique piece for you. You could become part of the community that forms around an artist, or enjoy the thrill of supporting one. You could invest in a work, or relish the social status of a conversation piece. Or, you could simply fall in love, and go home with a something that is forever a part of your story.

These events are known for being inclusive and participatory. There are live demonstrations by exhibiting artists, where you can pick up inspiration, and get an insight into how they create their individual style. There is an interactive art area with Este MacLeod and artist-led workshops by Jelly, to try your hand, and discover your talent. There is an Art Quest at every fair for children to go on. 

Whether you know what you are looking for or are browsing for inspiration, there is simply no substitute for walking the aisles and taking in all the art. With a winning mix of truly great art across a wide range of tastes and styles, an interactive art space and wine tasting, our fairs are a one-stop experience for all-day viewing of art.
