The UK’s largest contemporary print fair will run 17-20 November 2016 at the Royal Arsenal Riverside in Woolwich. Curated by Brocket Gallery London, Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair will sell original, affordable prints alongside demonstrations, artist tours and advice on how to start an art collection.

Brocket Gallery are hoping to raise £5000 to cover the costs of our printed literature, signage and to go towards the installation materials such as wood and hanging equipment.

 The concept behind this venture is to celebrate every aspect of printmaking - from etching and lithograph, to woodblock and screen-printing. Emerging artistic talent will sit alongside established practitioners with an incredible range of prints for sale and exhibitors with an unsurpassed knowledge of their craft. There will be prices to suit all pockets and original prints that appeal to both longstanding collectors and people looking to buy their first original artwork. Interactive demonstrations will also offer visitors the chance to learn about the practice of printmaking and what to look for when starting to build their own collection. WCPF embodies the style, innovation and craft of the luxury art market whilst engaging with a wider audience than ever before.


Brocket Gallery are proudly to be supported by London’s leading award-winning property developer, Berkeley Homes, to deliver a vibrant destination for London’s art scene. Berkeley Homes create designer lifestyles for contemporary living, and Brocket’s contemporary artists featured at the print fairs perfectly compliment this ethos. When Crossrail opens in 2017, Woolwich will be just 20 minutes from Bond Street.

With over 50 specialist artists and exhibitors, including Slaughterhaus Studio London and Thames-Side Print Studio, Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair will be the only print fair in London to deal solely in contemporary printmaking. 

Situated in the impressive Royal Arsenal in an old carriage factory, it will draw on a rich historic relationship between the arts and old or abandoned military buildings. Venice uses the city's own Arsenale during their art Biennale and London's own Arsenal will provide a similar extraordinary setting for a fair which is set to grow in size, ambition and popularity over the coming years. 

Framing advice and onsite services will be available at a special discounted rate for the duration of the fair alongside tours, talks and refreshments. 


Risks and challenges

If we are unable to raise the correct amount of funds, the fair mightn't be executed to the best of our ability and for the best interests of the exhibiting artists. However, the fair will still go ahead and we will still promote these skilled and innovative printmakers.
