The Art Car Boot Sale returns to SWG3

Turner Prize nominees and emerging stars will feature

Scotland’s biggest contemporary art market is back after a two year gap.

The Art Car Boot Sale returns to SWG3 next week with a brilliant array of talent.

This year, the line-up ranges from Turner Prize nominees to award winning internationally renowned artists and emerging stars of the future.

Among those showing are: Claire Barclay, Rachel Duckhouse, Luke Fowler, Calum Craik, Natsumi Sakamoto and many more.

The line-up was announced today by Patricia Fleming Gallery, which is curating the event.

'Surpassed'

Patricia Fleming, said: “We are really looking forward to seeing artists and buyers (in person) again.

“We know people looking to buy art like to talk about it and who better to talk to than the artist.

“Previous Art Car Boot Sales have surpassed our expectations, helping artists to pay for studio rents and other overheads.

“Studios and materials are necessary to make the art shaping our cultural legacy, including free access to exhibitions across Scotland.

“Our contemporary artists are a major contributor to Scotland’s outstanding artistic profile on the International stage.

“Working just as hard locally demonstrates our commitment to growing the sector at home.

“Events like Art Car Boot Sale bring into focus the role the visual arts contribute to Scotland’s economy and the positive effect art has on our wellbeing, both important factors in our collective recovery from the pandemic.”

The art market prides itself on being accessible to all, while eschewing elitism in the art world.

Guests have the opportunity to learn more about the process of art making with pieces ranging from just £5 to £500.

Glasgow Artist and Govan Project Space founder Alex Allen, said: “Art can often feel quite elitist and inaccessible to the public.

“Art Car Boot Sale stands to eliminate a large part of that wall of intimidation that can sometimes surround artwork in a gallery setting.

“I’m looking forward to dusting off a pandemic's worth of studio work for an outing at SWG3!”
