We at Silver Star Gallery are proud to announce that we will be taking part, you could say have a ‘starring role’ in the highly esteemed Chester Arts Fair held at Chester Racecourse this year from the 18th-20th November 2016.

You will find us on block 1 on the ground floor, please come and introduce yourself and say hello, we would love to meet you.

Including all mediums and styles the fair aims to offer everyone the chance to view and buy affordable and contemporary art at this yearly event. It offers the public the opportunity to choose from hundreds of paintings and sculptures from a wide variety of artists including those that work in other 3D mediums all in one place.

From previous visits to the fair I know that there’s certainly a buzzy atmosphere that is also relaxed enough that you won’t be afraid to approach the staff and gallery owners for an insight into the artworld. In such a lovely environment, the Chester Art Fair really can offer something for everyone.

Located at Chester’s famous historic racecourse, now, a mecca for high profile events and meetings we are lucky enough to also be located right in the heart of Chester. In-fact we are only a stone’s throw away from the racecourse. Why bother then, you might say?  Well, to us it’s a unique chance to meet and engage with art lovers, artists and other businesses servicing the arts all under one roof, to make links and interact with all visitors from Chester and much further afield.

We want to showcase the very best art and introduce our artists to a wider audience. We want to show artists what we can offer them, ie. our personal friendly approach. We make a point of getting to know all our artists personally so we can help each other and we can represent them in the very best way to our customers. Not only that but we also offer our very own in-house bespoke framing service. Quality and value are guaranteed.

It is great to be involved in the vibrant art scene that exists here in Chester, there is a wealth of cultural dynamism with a strong reputation for quality and individualism. The many art galleries and organisations work together to help make the visitor experience memorable.

Chester is known as a place that draws in shoppers from wide and far, as well as those that are fascinated by it’s 2000 year history and those that simply come to be surrounded by it’s beautiful architecture and enjoy it’s hospitality. So it’s not surprising that many will choose to make a weekend of it, spend a stimulating afternoon at the art fair, wander into town for a coffee or a meal and maybe end up in one of Chester’s many music venues or watering holes.  There are excellent transport links, via train or by car, and free parking is available for visitors to the art fair.

It’s an exciting but daunting thing to take part in any large-scale event or trade fair, but one that is rewarding in so many ways. I’m sure it will be our ‘time to shine’, here at Silverstar!

We hope that in addition to visiting our stall in the art fair you might also find the time to visit our Art Gallery down romantic Godstall Lane, opposite Chester Cathedral, right in the heart of Chester, where you can find plenty more paintings from your favourite artists.

Cheshire’s premier arts event, Chester Arts Fair, will be taking place from 18-20 November at Chester Racecourse. Visitors can view and buy art from over 90 UK & International galleries and emerging & established artists. The Fair attracts visitors with a genuine passion for art, from serious collectors to those investing in their first piece of original art.

It is one of the few fairs around today which exhibits current art and living artists as well as well-known Artists from over the last century. The exhibiting galleries bring to the fair some of the most exciting contemporary art work existing in modern society.

So, It is with great anticipation that we prepare for what will undoubtedly be a ‘glittering’ event for Chester. We look forward to wowing you with our artistic offerings, and maybe one piece in particular might ‘shine out’ to you (ok, that was the last of the puns)!

All the artwork we are taking will be for sale at the Chester Arts fair. We specialise in affordable original artwork, many of our artists working in acrylic or oil with a few working in watercolour and pastels. Our artists work in a wide variety of styles and genre’s so hopefully we will have something to suit everyone’s taste and pocket.

If you come to the Chester Arts Fair as a result of reading this or any of our marketing we would love to know. It helps us know what works and what doesn’t. So please let us know when you speak to us.

If you like what we do, and would like to be kept informed about any future events we may have at the Gallery or elsewhere, please leave your email address with the staff on our stand and we will make sure that you don’t miss out. Believe me we have big plans for lots of exciting art events. Watch this space.
