COLLECT 2021, the International Art Fair

 Founded in 2004 by the Crafts Council, Collect has established itself as the preeminent art fair for contemporary craft and design.

 I’ve worked with the Collect VIP programme to host virtual tours with a stunning group of specialist international galleries, showcasing works made in the past five years by living artists.

It’s also been my pleasure to work with The Cynthia Corbett Gallery  by curating an exhibition to tempt you to acquire some of the exceptional pieces of work on display created by the highly talented artists like Amy Hughes above.

At a time when we are unable to come together at Somerset House in London, you can find works on the online art platform Artsy.net for exhibitors to showcase the works for sale from 26 February – 24 March 2021.
