I’ve just received a press release announcing the line up for this year’s Collect and thought I should share it with SIT’s followers forthwith so that you can all start saving both dates and funds. Collect, now in its 10th year, is a selling exhibition of premium quality contemporary craft organised by the Crafts Council (www.craftscouncil.org.uk) and this year sees a line up of 36 internationally-acclaimed galleries showing exquisite work from across all craft disciplines. My personal highlights are Garniture of Nine Vases, 2013 by Andrew Wicks who is represented by Adrian Sassoon and Liz Blavarpz’s Purple Necklace, 2013. (Galerie Format)
Running alongside the main show is Project Space, an alternative exhibition showcasing seven leading makers, two of whom are close friends of SIT. Stroud-based ceramic artist Cleo Mussi www.mussimosaics.co.uk will be showing an installation of seven life-sized mosaic figures made from reclaimed ceramic while tapestry artist and SIT patron Jilly Edwards www.jillyedwards.co.uk will be be there with some of her joyous new work.
Something uplifting to look forward to.
Collect 2014 opens to the public at the Sataachi Gallery, Duke of York’s HQ, Kings Road, London SW3 on 10th May. Tickets go on sale in March. For more information contact www.craftscouncil.org.uk/collect
