Buy Art Fair 2016 was best ever!

Buy Art Fair & The Manchester Contemporary 2016 was the most successful event to date with thousands of art lovers visiting the fair on opening night and over the weekend and more art sales than ever before in the fair's history.

Recognised as one of the UK’s most important festivals of visual arts, Buy Art Fair brings galleries, artists, talks and classes, exhibitions, music and award-winning food and drink to Old Granada Studios St Johns. With over 3,000 artworks for sale there will be a piece of art for everybody to fall in love with.

Taking place alongside Buy Art Fair, The Manchester Contemporary is an unrivalled incubator of artistic talent. Using bold curatorial judgement it offers works for sale from the most exciting, critically engaged contemporary artists and galleries, many of whom then embark on the international art fair network.
