About the Artist/Exhibition

The Oxton Art Fair started in 2004 by a group of friends who were aware that there was a core of artists residing in the area and an influx of artists formerly of the area returning from overseas and newcomers attracted to the community atmosphere and picturesque village. All of the artists and craftspeople live in Oxton.

On the last weekend of November nine exciting guest artists will be joining the artists of the annual Oxton Art Fair at the Williamson Art Gallery. This new blood will add fresh interest and variety to the 10th annual fair from the Oxton Artists at the gallery. The reputation of the fair continues to grow well beyond the boundaries of Oxton Village. This major community and social event is well supported by local residents and businesses attracting more than 1500 visitors over the weekend.

Colin Simpson, Principal Museum’s officer for The Williamson Art Gallery and Museum said of the event: “The relationship that has developed between the Williamson and Oxton Artists through this initiative has been mutually rewarding and very satisfying. The quality of work produced by local artists is undeniable and we are pleased to be a focus of activity throughout the year, but especially for this event. The Oxton Art Fair goes from strength to strength and it now represents the busiest weekend of the year at the gallery. I look forward to seeing the work that is presented as there are always surprises that make each new year an exciting opportunity.”

The exhibitors will be showing a variety of contemporary art and design in photography, painting, illustration, jewellery, textiles, print and sculpture. All of the artists exhibit regularly in the North West of England, some nationally and a few internationally.
