UK record executive and visual artist, Marc Marot, will join the selection panel for this year’s Liverpool Art Fair as the deadline for submissions nears. The former Islands Records manager, known for working with bands such as U2, Elbow, De La Soul and Pulp to name drop just a few, will join Angela Samata and Liverpool Echo’s executive editor Laura Davies to judge artist submissions for the Liverpool Art Fair, that is part of the summer long Pier Head Village attraction on the Liverpool waterfront. Artists living within a 35-mile radius of the Liverpool City region have been called to submit their best work by May 14, to be considered for this year’s event. Successful applicants will get the opportunity to showcase and sell their work in the purpose built gallery at the heart of the summer attraction. Liverpool Art Fair has been held annually since 2012 for only 4 days each year. In the new partnership with Pier Head Village, the exhibition will run for the entire summer from June 30th to 10th September, giving artists the opportunity to exhibit for over two months. Marc Marot commented: “I find how artists express their work in many forms completely exciting, I jumped at the opportunity to work with Lucy and the team at Liverpool Art Fair and I can’t wait to see the variety of work we can display.” Lucy Byrne of Liverpool Art Fair added: “Marc has worked with musical legends of our lifetime and having someone with his experience on the judging panel is so very exciting, we have already had over 100 artists submit works and the final call is now on this weekend.” Martin O’Shea of Pier Head Village went onto say: “Bringing great artists to The Pier Head Village has been essential for me this year and to bring someone like Marc Marot into the mix takes it to a new level of respect. We can’t wait to see the work of so many super talented local artists on display.” Liverpool Art Fair 2017 – FINAL Call for Artist Submissions Liverpool Art Fair 2017 will take place from throughout July and August, at Liverpool’s Iconic Pier Head, as part of the Pier Head Village.
