Crafts Council COLLECT 2021 - International Arts Fair

Crafts Council COLLECT 2021 - International Arts Fair

Dates: 26 Feb 2021 - 02 Mar 2021

Location: Virtual

Since 2004 ‘Collect’ has staged some fascinating pieces of art and contemporary craft and design. 
 
Over it’s 17 year reign it has brought together international gallerists, expert in their fields, to showcase and sell work by living contemporary craft artists. Much of the work is made especially for the fair and soon finds new homes in private and public collections around the world.
 
Last year it played host to a very successful fair at Somerset House. 
Collect 2021, however is played out in a very different way. In response to the ongoing pandemic, it will collaborate with the online art platform Artsy.net to provide an exhibiting gallery for each individual artist who will have their own online booth to display their work for sale. 
 
From 26th February - 2nd March you can also experience the following:-
  • A blend of free digital and virtual events
  • Talks and tours from leading gallerists 
  • Artists and leading figures across art, fashion and culture
The fair will then remain on Artsy. net until the 26 March giving buyers a longer opportunity to purchase work.
 
There are 30 galleries confirmed to date including from the U.S, Thailand, France, Hong Kong, Netherlands, South Korea, Norway, China, Germany and the UK.
