In a bid to drive a new wave of collectors across Scotland, Art Car Boot Sale is gearing up for its biggest event yet. It features more than 100 Scottish-based contemporary artists, who will come together on 7 and 8 July to showcase and sell their work from the back of cars, transits and camper vans.
The event, which will feature artists such as Kate V Robertson(pictured) and a host of former Turner Prize nominees, will take place at Scotland’s leading multi-discipline arts complex SWG3, located in Glasgow’s vibrant Finnieston area. The sale will be on the ground floor, spread throughout the breathtaking Galvanizers and new Acid Bar, with art priced from £5 to £500.
The 2017 sale welcomed more than 4,000 people and generated around £100,000 for the local arts economy, including artists and picture framers, as well as a roaring trade for street food vendors during the event. This year’s event will also feature DJs and cocktail bars.
Participating artists include: Beagles and Ramsey, Claire Barclay, Christine Borland, Ilana Halperin, Kate V Robertson, Toby Paterson, Helen De Main, Michael Fullerton, Luke Fowler, Jim Lambie, Tessa Lynch, France-Lise McGurn, Ciara Phillips, Ross Sinclair, Gregor Wright, Erica Eyres, Susannah Stark and some of Glasgow’s finest recent graduates all pitching up in person.
