THE 15TH ANNUAL OXTON ART FAIR IS A WONDERFUL SHOWCASE OF ART, CRAFT AND DESIGN FROM LOCAL ARTISTS WITHIN FOUR GALLERIES OF THE WILLIAMSON ART GALLERY AND MUSEUM IN BIRKENHEAD.
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 semiprofessional 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 coordinator of the John Moores Painting Prize.
You will be able to meet them, talk to them, and purchase their work, at The Williamson Art Gallery and Museum – Slatey Road, Birkenhead – CH43 4UE on Saturday 25th November (10 am till 5pm) and Sunday 26th November (10am till 4pm).
