Applications are now open to showcase at Collect 2019, the international art fair for contemporary objects.
Craft Scotland is now inviting applications from makers working at the very highest standards of their craft practice to showcase at Collect 2019. Makers may use a range of materials including ceramics, glass, jewellery, wood, metal, stone, plastic and textiles.
Collect, the international art fair for contemporary objects, is the craft sector's premier showcase, bringing together artists and collectors from around the world. It offers visitors an unrivalled opportunity to see and buy contemporary museum-quality craft from established and emerging artists and makers represented by over 30 of the world's finest galleries.
Running from 28 February to 3 March 2019 in the prestigious Saatchi Gallery in London, Collect offers visitors an opportunity to indulge both their passion for collecting and their interest in contemporary craft.
Previously in partnership with Emergents, Craft Scotland exhibited the work of 17 makers at Collect 2018 and is now looking forward to returning to this inspiring show.
