Williamson Art Gallery, Oxton, CH43 4UE
Now in its 14th year, the Oxton Art Fair will return to the Williamson Art Gallery on 25 November 2017 for its biggest event yet.
This year, 24 professional and semi-professional artists will showcase their work across four rooms of the Williamson Art Gallery in Oxton, Wirral.
Visitors can expect to see beautifully crafted handmade artworks such as pottery, jewellery and textiles, as well as photography, printmaking and everything in between.
Viewed as Wirral’s must-visit pre-Christmas event, it gives both gift buyers and browsers a chance to chat to the artists about their work and if they choose, buy a truly individual piece.
There will be children’s activities on throughout the weekend and refreshments for sale in the new Williamson café.
10am - 5pm Saturday 25 Nov

Hazel Thompson is exhibiting in gallery 3 with her unique style of painting, classical and contemporary, her scenes are realistic, and full of atmosphere. As she paints in layers with pallet knife and brush they are textured and detailed. Multi award winner Hazel Thomson, has been working on landscapes of Cheshire and surrounding areas over the past few years. She has gained a true understanding of nature and this is reflected in her paintings.
In the Link Gallery, Dennis Rogers is showing a collection he has drawn and painted during the twenty years since he retired. Much of this has been as part of the Eddisbury Artists group. Although his work has covered most of the usual subjects he has come to be mostly interested in still life compositions in which he can investigate what happens to watercolour paint on paper and in paper. He exhibits two or three times a year including at Castle Park Arts Centre. www.castleparkarts.co.uk
