Welcome to the Virtual Online CAF2020 - Chester Arts Fair

Welcome to the Virtual Online CAF2020

The UK’s most prestigious Art Fair.

The UK’s favourite artist fair will have plenty in store for everyone, with a curated collection of over 70 British and international artists showcasing over hundreds of pieces of art, including Paintings, Sculpture, Ceramics, Photography and Mixed Media artwork. 

Celebrating its ninth year, The Deepbridge Chester Arts Fair is taking place virtually online from Friday 13th November to Sunday 13th December, 2020. Organisers have
worked hard to move the event online using virtual reality technology, in response to the national Covid-19 restrictions. The online event has been made free to the public and been extended to take place over four weeks rather than just a weekend.

Your guide to the Virtual Fair

At the Deepbridge Chester Arts Fair, there are over 100 pieces of artwork available to buy and view. Whether you’re buying a painting to liven up the front room or purchasing a Christmas gift for someone special, there is sure to be something worthy of your investment.

There are no secrets or enigmas when it comes to buying art … if you see something you love and it stirs something inside of you, then it’s probably for you. When starting a collection you don’t need to have a background in art, you simply need to love what you’re collecting and have the means to support it.

“Art has become more important than ever during the pandemic, helping with mental health and uniting the nation. We hope that by moving the Fair online and making it free, will offer a much need opportunity to lift people’s spirits by enjoying a new type art experience from the comfort of their own homes. We are pleased to be raising much needed funds for charities that are affected by the pandemic.  Our exhibitors and sponsors have been very supportive in making this happen, so that visitors don’t miss out.” Laura O’Hare (Art Fair Director)
