Edinburgh’s Gallery TEN is one of the galleries taking part in COLLECT 2021 – the annual Crafts Council International art fair. This year the show will be virtual due to the current Covid restrictions, with a VIP opening preview online. The Gallery will be putting displaying a selection of its artists’ works in its Edinburgh window for the duration of the show and afterwards, comprising its COLLECT [unlocked] exhibition.
COLLECT is a Crafts Council initiative, presented on the Artsy platform Artsy.net, where each gallery will have its own online ‘booth’ to display its artists’ work for sale. A number of digital and virtual events, talks and tours from leading gallerists, artists, and leading figures across art, fashion and culture will take place until 2nd March, and thereafter, the fair will remain online until 26 March, giving buyers a longer opportunity to purchase work.
More than thirty galleries confirmed to date, including from Scotland and the UK, US, Thailand, France, Hong Kong, Netherlands, South Korea, Norway, China, and Germany; those from Edinburgh include Gallery TEN and Dovecot Studios.
