Oxton Art Fair

Oxton Fair - Lisa Waldman
 
The Oxton Art Fair, now in its 13th year, is even bigger and better with 21 professional and semi-professional artists showcasing their work across three rooms of the Williamson Art Gallery. A diverse mix of interesting and innovative quality art will be showcased to suit every pocket. Visitors can expect to see striking contemporary art, delicate hand-crafted jewellery, beautifully created ceramics, sculpture, textiles, printmaking, photography and everything in between.

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, buy a truly individual piece.
 
This year the fair will be opened by former Oxton Artist and Honorary Fellow at JMU, ceramic sculptor, Emma Rodgers. Last year’s event was opened by children’s author, and illustrator, Cathy Cassidy, who says: ‘Oxton Art Fair is a lovely event that punches above its weight when it comes to talent, creativity and originality. I was thrilled to be asked along to speak at the opening night, and even more thrilled to meet the makers. The bonus was that I managed to do a good chunk of my Christmas shopping without even trying.”
