What to Expect
The Day of Art – Southampton 2019, is a day of inspiration and community to celebrate the creative minds in our neighbourhoods. Local artists will showcase their masterpieces for all those eager for art and culture across multiple venues in Southampton City Centre.
By providing opportunities for artists and showcasing their talents, visitors to the city will be able to enjoy a diverse range of art and activities throughout the day. Families will be encouraged to take part in creative, artist-led drop-in sessions to draw, paint and make together. Immersive experiences, public displays, exhibitions, performances, workshops, activities and The Accessible Art Show’s auction will enable everyone to interact with the Day of Art – Southampton 2019.
The Accessible Art Show – Hampshire, will be one of the main exhibitions and highlights during the day. The exhibition is a free all-encompassing one-day art show, combining an art exhibition with a timed online auction. Up to 50 local artists will exhibit their unique one off pieces displaying up to 300 pieces of artwork, all artwork on display will be available to buy through our timed online auction platform. There will also be a Buy It Now (BIN) price, that will enable buyers to purchase the artwork immediately at a fixed price, as opposed to using the bidding process.
If you love art and love your city come along and enjoy both!
