Chester is Leading the Way: Chester Arts Fair

Chester Arts FairThe 7th Chester Arts Fair (CAF) featured a Charity Art Auction hosted by BBC’s antiques and art expert David Harper, raising money for The Countess Charity.

CAF is a leading Fair for artists and art lovers.

The Visual Art Open (VAO) finalist show will return for the second year running exhibiting artwork from around the world including America, Syria, South Africa, France, Poland and the UK. The VAO is a platform for emerging artists to present their originality to a wider audience; all of which the Fair is proud and delighted to support.

Throughout the weekend there will also be exhibits from schools across the NW taking part in the Art in Education programme.

This gives students the opportunity to showcase their work in front of leading industry professionals with award ceremonies over the weekend.

Additionally, CAF will be holding a new exhibit for 2018 about our environment. It will feature contemporary art, talks and workshops about our shifting landscapes and environmental sustainability, as a response to the greater public and political discussion brought about by the BBC Blue Planet documentaries.
