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 crafts people live in Oxton. Each year we welcome guest artists from the surrounding area to join the Oxton Art Fair to enriched our annual event.
Broad brush strokes and delicate strands of silver, coloured threads and stones,
black and white, figurative and abstract, surprising photographs and exquisite prints, inks, watercolours, oils, it is all there at the 14th OXTON ART FAIR 2017. 23 Artists and Guests, all unique and different.
It is a wonderful weekend just prior to Christmas where artists are available to discuss their work. There will be refreshments for sale in the gallery cafe all weekend. All art works are for sale inspiring interesting hand made Christmas presents or beautiful pieces of art for your own Christmas present. Bring your family!
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).
``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.``
Colin Simpson, Principal Museum’s officer for The Williamson Art Gallery and Museum.
