Spent on art


"The Fair continues to be a genuine counterweight to London – and a real part of the art world ecology outside the capital"
i newspaper 4* review

“I am really impressed with how Manchester’s art scene has developed in recent years. There is no shortage of potential art buyers in the region, and the fair is vital to inspire and develop a significant audience of collectors.”
Frank Cohen  Art Collector

Over the last 15 years Manchester Art Fair has grown into the largest and most successful art fair outside London, with over 168 exhibitors, 12,830 visitors and over £816,000 worth of art sold at the 2023 fair.

EASELProjects are a dedicated, experienced team based in the North of England. For over twenty years we have been delivering exhibitions and events in the areas we are hugely passionate about. We aim to create a more inclusive and supportive event for our exhibitors and to develop a sense of community for the art collectors of the North.

With an international reputation for the visual arts and institutions such as Manchester Art Gallery, The Whitworth, HOME, Manchester International Festival, The Lowry and Aviva Studios, Manchester is the ‘original modern city’.

Manchester has been named as one of 25 global destinations to be included in the Where to Go 2024 list by prestigious US travel publication AFAR, has been named in the New York Times’ 52 Places to Go list for 2024 and is the only UK city in National Geographic's influential ‘Best of the World’ list which annually sets out 25 of the must-see places to visit around the globe.

The Fair’s venue, Manchester Central located at the heart of the city centre is served by its own dedicated tram stop, free city centre shuttle buses and on-site parking for 700 cars.

Combing state-of-the-art exhibition facilities and little extras such as dedicated porters and trolleys we aim to make exhibiting as easy as possible. Once the fair’s doors close at the end of a successful day the city centre’s restaurants, bars and theatres are on your doorstep to enjoy!
