Artists put their work on display at Lancaster Christmas art fair

Creative workshops are a feature of the King Street Arts festive art fair in Lancaster

 A celebration of creativity by local artists is coming to a Lancaster art gallery this festive season.

For the sixth year, King Street Arts (formerly King Street Studios) has organised an Art Fair from December 7 to 19 where more than 50 local and regional artists will display their work.

It’s the perfect opportunity for visitors to buy some unique gifts too.

“The Art Fair gives local and regional artists a selling platform and opportunities to get their work seen; everything is handmade and has a unique quality to it,” said Roy Smith, who runs King Street Arts with Kath McDonald.

For the second consecutive year, the Art Fair takes place in The Storey’s spacious Victorian gallery. On display will be a wealth of paintings, ceramics, drawings, sculpture, mixed media, prints, gifts and cards at a range of prices.

The Art Fair also includes a couple of festive-themed workshops. On December 7, Natalia Bogolyubova leads a needlefelting workshop while on December 13, there will be a papercutting workshop with Maryam Golubeva. Both run from 6.30 to 9pm and cost £18 each including materials.

All adults are welcome and accompanied older children can also participate. Booking is essential by ringing 07743238663 or emailing info@kingstreetstudios.art

The Art Fair is open Monday to Saturday, 10am to 4.30pm and admission is free.
