The Expressive Arts Fair was found by Georgie Vargemezi, visual artist, as a result of seeing that festivals in Limerick were focused on singular artforms. She decided to create and coordinate a Fair where as many artforms as possible come together under one roof with the view of multidisciplinary collaborations igniting, visitors being inspired by different artistic processes, and artists of all artforms celebrating their work. The Expressive Arts Fair will include artist workshops, demonstrations, plenty of artist stalls and artworks for sale.

Georgie Vargemezi currently works from Wickham studios, Limerick, and has a B.A. (Hons) from the University of York, UK, in History of Art. She has worked within the community, and with local Limerick charities for the last 3 years, with art and gardening workshops and demonstrations. Georgie now holds abstract art workshops for adults & children, and is an independent exhibition curator. You can find her on Instagram at @georgievargemezi.
