For artists & art lovers everywhere
Whether you're an artist, collector an avid art viewer or just looking to view great work. We have some amazing contemporary art exhibitions in fantastic venues, right around the country.
Offering an opportunity for artists and collectors to meet, buy and chat to the artists direct.
Find out the drivers behind established, new and emerging artists all with their own great stories to tell.
We're putting the artist back in charge of their art and cutting out the middleman, our shows never take commissions and that makes the art more affordable for collectors and more profitable for the artists.
With tremendous gratitude, we would like to thank all the exhibitors for your patience and kind messages of support during the past 12 months. It has been a difficult time for many artists and art companies. Luckily, we have great artists, employees and partners that have enabled the company to keep going through this challenging period.
The Manchester show is now scheduled for the bank holiday
from 15th to the 18th of April 2022.
All the artists who have registered are guaranteed entry to the event at no extra cost.
We had hoped that the show would be later this year. However, as many of our artists are travelling from around the world, this seemed a little optimistic due to possible continued social distancing and the banned country list possibly being in place until the year-end. The show also requires at least 6 months of preparation and promotion, so this will give us plenty of time to make the show a huge success.
We will continue to ere on the side of safety without wanting to compromise on the success of the exhibitions. We continue to work tremendously hard to re-organise our events; however, this work remains problematic as currently many of our artists are international and would not be able to attend the shows due to travel restrictions in the UK and other countries meaning potential empty spaces at the exhibitions.
As ever organising these events takes a considerable amount of time and effort, with a new start in 2021 and without the shadow of Covid-19, we will now press ahead to solidify new dates and venues.
