London’s largest open-air gallery returns to Brixton

After a two year Covid break, London’s largest open-air contemporary arts fair returns to the railings of Josephine Avenue over the weekend of 16th and 17th July.

Open from 10.00am to 6.00pm the fair features the work of established and emerging artists. Over 1000 pieces of work in a range of media from around 100 artists will be on display. It is a great opportunity to meet the artists, learn about their work, and buy art at affordable prices.

Urban Art also raises funds for local causes. This year Holy Trinity School, Jubilee Primary School, Southside Rehabilitation project and the Anchor Group will receive a percentage of the sales made during the weekend.

Urban Art was created in 2002 by Josephine Avenue resident and portrait artist Timothy Sutton who saw the railings in the street and realised it was a natural open air gallery. ‘I knew from experience the lack of affordable and credible exhibition space so this was a bit of a no brainer really.’

The fair is free and refreshments will be available from a variety of food stalls.
