Exhibit at Manchester Art Fair 2020

The Fair

The Fair

Manchester Art Fair is one of the UK's most ambitious art fairs welcoming over 76,000 visitors and selling over £5m worth of art since it's launch in 2008.

Our 120 exhibitors are a curated selection of established galleries, emerging galleries and artist-led spaces. The fair attracts a targeted mix of city sophisticates, mature money and executive wealth from the city centre and affluent suburbs. Bring your gallery to Manchester and engage a whole new collector base with your artists and their work.

Detailed figures, feedback and information from the 2019 fair will be available soon.

Saul Hay Gallery:

''As always we were brilliantly looked after by the team at Manchester Art Fair. The huge number of visitors across the weekend shows that there is an appetite for contemporary art in Manchester and the North.''

MASA Gallery:

''The quality of the fair, the communication of the organisers to the exhibitors and clients, together with that Manchester charm, makes this one of the best art fairs in the whole of Britain.''
