The 2017 Art Car Boot Fair is almost upon us, always one of the highlights of our art year, Sunday 9th July is the date, Whitgift Street, Vauxhall, London, SE11 is the place so don’t be making for Brick Lane this year, Vauxhall is the place (which is good for regular event sponsors Vauxhall cars)


Always an exciting pleasure to be invited to take part in the Art Car Boot Fair. As we’ve said before, this is the day when art lets down his or her hair (still wonder if art is a he or a she?), always one of the highlights of the London art Calendar, and this year things are to be a little bit re-booted. The theme is “Originals” and there’s an exciting new venue down by the Newport Street gallery in Vauxhall.   This year sees a return to the event being more about the actual artists than galleries and the rule is that all the artists will be there in their car boots.



Karen Ashton, Founder of the Art Car Boot Fair says, “As well as bringing an original line-up to our new location in Vauxhall, we’ll also be drawing on all the talents our exciting new locale has to offer.”

“We’re right at the centre of Vauxhall’s burgeoning creative quarter with a fantastic array of galleries, pop-ups, and established gems like the Vauxhall City Farm, MI6, Beaconsfield Gallery and the Royal Vauxhall Tavern – so expect guys and spies, plus the odd Llama and lots of cool art in the mix this year! We’re also hoping for a guest appearance and contribution from the owner of the Newport Street Gallery. A special thanks to our new hosts U+I and The Workshop.”


The Vauxhall Art Car Boot Fair takes place on Sunday 9th July at the Workshop, by Newport Street Gallery, Whitgift Street, London SE11 between 12-6pm. Entry is priced at £5.

This year we (Cultivate) shall be three, three Cultivate original artists and lots of original art made for the fair, Cultivate founders Sean Worrall and Emma Harvey will once again be joined by guests and regular Cultivate collaborators Quiet British Accent (and yes technically QBA are two artists, so in truth we’ll be four original artists).  We look forward to seeing you all there, we’ll have original pieces of art for sale for as little as £1…
