A SCOTTISH art car boot sale is gearing up for its biggest event yet.

Art Car Boot Sale features more than 100 Scottish-based contemporary artists, who will come together on July 7 and 8 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 and a host of former Turner Prize nominees, will take place at SWG3, located in Finnieston in Glasgow. Art will be priced from £5 to £500.

Patricia Fleming, Art Car Boot Sale organiser, said:“We have fabulous contemporary artists in Scotland, it’s one of our greatest cultural assets, and we want to make it really easy and fun for people to start or build collections. The car boot sale atmosphere is really relaxed and you get to meet the artists and chat to them about their work and their lives.”

The 2017 sale welcomed more than 4000 people and generated around £100,000 for the local arts economy, including artists and picture framers, as well as trade for street food vendors during the event. This year’s event will also feature DJs and cocktail bars.

Participating artists include: Beagles and Ramsay, 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.

Kate V Robertson, one of the participating artists, said: “I’m really looking forward to this year’s event, it’s such a brilliant way to bring artists and the public together – to buy art in the familiar format of a car boot sale. Contemporary art in Scotland is really exciting and thriving scene to be a part of, but it can be very challenging to earn a living – many struggle to be able to maintain a regular practice and afford studio space. Initiatives like this offer a great way to generate income and new audiences.

Mutley, founder of SWG3, said: “Whether you are looking for art as an investment or for something original to hang on your wall, Art Car Boot Sale is a treasure trove of contemporary Scottish art. We are very excited about hosting the second instalment of this event.”

The Art Car Boot Sale runs from 11am-6pm on Saturday July 7 and noon-6pm on Sunday July 8 at SWG3, 100 Eastvale Place, Glasgow G3 8QG. For more information see swg3.tv/events
