Oxton Art Fair 2018

About This Project

In terms of numerology, the number 15 is the number for; ‘harmony, innovation and family’. Oxton Art Fair can offer all three, as it returns to the Williamson Art Gallery on November 24th for its 15th year.

Harmony: This year, there are 19 professional and semi- professional artists and friends who will come together to showcase their work across three gallery rooms.

Innovation: Members and annual guests will present a diverse mix of interesting and innovative art in the form of; photography, printmaking and painting. Plus, beautifully hand-crafted pieces including; ceramics, jewellery, woodcraft and textiles. Viewed as Wirral’s must-visit pre-Christmas event, it gives both gift buyers and browsers a chance to chat to the artists about their work and if they choose, purchase a truly individual piece for their friends, family or home.

Family: There will be children’s art activities on throughout the weekend and refreshments for sale in the fabulous Williamson Café to help make this a truly all-round family event.

This year, the fair will be opened by Angela Samata, Winston Churchill Fellow for research into Outsider Art and former co-ordinator of the John Moores Painting Prize. Angela said:

“I’m delighted to be asked to open Oxton Art Fair to the public. Having lived and worked in and around Oxton for many years, I’m constantly impressed by the creativity that finds its home here. I deeply believe that supporting living artists in their endeavours is one of the greatest things we can do and I see the Oxton Art Fair as an excellent opportunity to do just that.”

Where: Williamson Art Gallery & Museum, 
Slatey Road, Birkenhead – CH43 4UE
