Buy Art Fair 2015 03 Sep

We are pleased to be returning to Buy Art Fair this year, providing lots of lovely arts and crafts activities for younger visitors to enjoy.  Buy Art Fair is the leading art fair in the North and returns to Old Granada Studios offering the richest and most compelling cultural experience yet, reflecting the changing dynamics between art buyers, artists, and galleries.

Launched back in 2008, Buy Art Fair is the place to buy original art in the North for 8,000 people every year. With the support of Manchester City Council, Arts Council England, Own Art, The Contemporary Art Society and a wide range of cultural partners Buy Art Fair and it’s sister event The Manchester Contemporary have grown to be the largest contemporary art fair outside London.


All the art at Buy Art Fair is original work and limited edition prints. This is your chance to buy something unique. Prices range from £50 to £5000+ so whatever your budget, there is a piece of art that you can afford, whether it is your first or for a growing collection. Buy Art Fair only happens once a year and is the only place in the North of England where you are able to see 100 exhibiting galleries and artists.

If you see something you like, don’t forget to pop in and see us after you have bought your original piece of art. We stock a wide range of top quality wooden and glass frames in both white and black. Take a look at the range here.
