Frequently asked questions

Launch event tickets are limited so please sign up to our mailing list and watch our social media channels to make sure you get an invite in your inbox. Head to the homepage to subscribe and follow our channels by clicking on the social media links at the top of this website.

How can I pay for my art purchase?

All of the artists will be selling directly to the art fair visitors and art collectors during the art fair. Most artists will havecard payment facilities, or the fair organisers can also take card payments if necesary.

Can I take my art away with me when I buy it?

Generally during an exhibition or art fair, the art on display will stay on the wall until the fair closes, and artwork that has been purchased will brandish a lovely red dot (a satisfying moment all round!). In special circumstances visitors can take their purchases away with them on the day, but normally arrangements would be made between artist and buyer to either collect the purchase on Sunday just before 4pm or to deliver the work at a mutually convenient time. Exceptions may be made if:

  • The buyer is purchasing an item that does not effect the overall quality of the display
  • If the visitor is not local and is leaving Colchester the same day
  • If the artists can replace the sold work with an alternative
