Collect 2021 with Ruthin Craft Centre
This is the 17th edition of Collect, the international art fair for contemporary craft and design.
Founded in 2004 by the Crafts Council, Collect has established itself as the preeminent art fair for craft and has been instrumental in growing the collectable market in this sector.
Working with its Advisory Panel, Collect brings you a stunning group of specialist international galleries, showcasing works made in the past five years by living artists.
The Collect gallerists will help you discover, introduce you to, and hopefully tempt you to acquire, some of the exceptional pieces of work on display created by the highly talented artists they represent. At a time when we are unable to come together at Somerset House in London, we are working in partnership with the online art platform Artsy.net for exhibitors to showcase the works for sale from 26 February – 24 March 2021.
Works span many craft disciplines including ceramics, glass, lacquer, art jewellery, precious metalwork, textiles and fibre, wood and paper to works using non-traditional materials including resin and bone.
This year 32 international galleries will be presenting over 400 artists from 35 nations from the UK to Senegal to Japan to the USA ensuring the calibre, aesthetic and breadth of work is outstanding.
Acquisitions are regularly made at Collect by major institutions such as the British Museum, V&A Museum and for numerous private and corporate collections.
The Fair also gives you access to free virtual events and talks from leading figures across art, fashion, interiors and culture from 26 February – 2 March 2021.
