We aim to provide a platform for a variety of artists from all stages of their career and we hope the art fair will be a celebration of what the UK art scene has to offer. 
 

The art fair runs over the August bank holiday and takes place in the heart of Chester; opposite the cathedral. As well as the exhibitors the art fair will see a series of talks and a variety of performances throughout the bank holiday weekend. 

 

The private view for Fronteer Independent Art Fair will take place on Friday 26th August, between 4-7.30pm. The private view will give you a chance to meet the artists involved and enjoy refreshments. You can find out more and RSVP here.
