Save the Date art&York 26th, 27th & 28th October

The art& show 2018 is a fantastic opportunity for collectors, buyers, art lovers and anyone else who is interested in meeting artists and buying unique art works to come along to this friendly, accessible and affordable art show. 

Set over three days, the art& show has over 120 artists’ work for sale and commission from a wide price range of £10 to £10,000+.  It’s also a chance to meet the artists, talk to them about their work and inspirations, and buy and commission direct.  Artists taking part in the show pay for their own space and there is a 0% commission on their sales – so whenever you buy a piece of work, you support an independent artist to keep on making, painting, drawing and sculpting their amazing creations. 

The art& team select artists and designer-makers showing a wide range of high quality and innovative work from glass and ceramics to painting and drawing, jewellery and textiles, sculpture and stonework and much more.

Visitors can also meet the RAW Talent Artists – 12 emerging artists who’ve won a place on the six month mentoring and supporting scheme. RAW Talent artists get a subsidized place at the show plus one to one mentoring and group workshops to prepare them for their first retail show.  In turn any sales they make have a commission back towards the scheme. So by buying from them visitors support the emergence of fresh new talent and get the chance to get work from up and coming makers and artists.

This year, the art&York event is showcasing for the first time a small number of room sets featuring artwork taking part in the show.  It’s a chance for visitors to be inspired by wonderful, unique room sets designed by people who’ll be full of ideas you can use in your own home.
