Following a record-breaking fair at The Truman Brewery October 2019, Roy’s Art Fair is excited to present its 6thedition, with more to offer our visitors than ever before. There will be 80 emerging and established artists on display, both new to our fair as well as previous artists showing new work. This FREE event will be hosted across 4 days at the iconic Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf on the lively Southbank.
Roy’s Art Fair is growing bigger with each event and is now firmly established in the art lover’s diary. With each fair growing in sales, visitors, and artists our 6th fair will play host to what visitors love about Roy’s and more. What sets us aside from the host of other art fairs now popping up around London is our comfortable yet energetic atmosphere that allows visitors to connect with artists and invest in artwork they love. Roy’s Art Fair does this at an approachable level, whether you’re an avid art collector or a first-time buyer and with our free entrance, we welcome all without a hard sell mentality.
New to Roy’s Art Fair will be our schedule of tours and workshops for all the family. Talks will include questions to ask yourself when choosing art that suits your space, art within an office environment and how to get your boss to see the importance of art in your workspace and steps in becoming an artist yourself. We will also have 'Disappointment Man' showing everyone how to create their own cartoon superhero!
We’re excited to partner with artist Jonny Concrete. Jonny Concrete is the first child of London based concrete table maker Hartland and Hartland. His best-known artwork is concrete door stops he makes from the waste concrete. We will have 15 concrete door stops hidden around London for the public to find all with a unique design from a Roy’s Art Fair Artist that will be exhibiting in our April fair. Keep an eye out around London and follow the journey on @jonnyconcrete and @roysartfair. Jonny also uses this opportunity to give exposure to the London Air Ambulance service and all the great work they do.
Roy’s Art Fair is continuing with our much-loved live art at the entrance to the fair and will have artists demonstrating the process of how they create their art for the duration of the fair. They will include artists participating at the fair as well as local art students gaining experience in the industry.
The team at Roy’s Art Fair are all artists in their own right and offer their invaluable expertise and support to both emerging and established artists as they navigate the art world. Their focus is primarily on developing a community-led spirit initiated by artists to connect directly with the public and promote both the artists' and buyers' interests first.
Global awareness of the negative human impact on the environment is growing and this year Roy's Art Fair is working with a specialist in the field in reducing their environmental impact of running the Fair. We are working with our artists about their own practice, our bar and our recycling methods to do what we can.
