Since 1995, Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as Women’s History Month.”

We are very pleased to feature a brand new collaborative venture, Caiger & Liberty who focus on contemporary fine art both originals and editions. Caiger & Liberty  present a beautiful selection of abstract works, collage pieces and limited edition prints from established and emerging artists from the UK.

Caiger & Liberty Logo

Caiger and Liberty Gallery formed as a collaboration between two established UK galleries, Caiger Contemporary Art and Liberty Gallery. Both galleries had already been working together on various projects, and were in the midst of planning a summer exhibition together when the opportunity to take their collaboration overseas came about.

We were very excited about how well our artists and artworks fitted together and feel we have a very strong offer, so we thought why not tour! The applications for Affordable Art Fair New York were open, so we thought what better place to start!’

Caiger & Liberty Directors, 2017

The galleries met through AWAD (Association of Women Art Dealers) and bonded over their like minded approach to their galleries, artists and the art world in general, which led them to start looking into options for getting involved with interesting projects together.

Nowadays it is all about collaboration and working together, which is why we are so excited to be able to launch this new collaboration in New York! But don’t worry, Londoners will also be able to see us in action too as we still have our joint exhibition coming up later this year!
