Five Galleries. One aim.
Our mission. 2020 has been a disruptive year for the Art, Craft and Design worlds. Fairs are being cancelled, exhibitions postponed, and more and more things have been moved online. This is not the ideal way to view objects. As five commercial galleries involved in the contemporary craft sector, we have become increasingly concerned about the effect this is having on the market and the ability for great work to be seen. We have come together with curator Brian Kennedy to develop projects to increase the visibility of the contemporary object within today’s changed landscape.
Together we can make things happen.
This exhibition, presented by Crafting a Difference, will celebrate outstanding international contemporary craft set within the magnificent architecture, décor and fabric of the Argentine Ambassador’s Official Residence, in the frame of London Craft Week 2021, with support from the Crafts Council, QEST, Loewe Foundation, Michelangelo Foundation, Cockpit Arts, Design Centre Chelsea Harbour and Artegian Design.

As a group we offer not only a distinctive and unique selection of works, but also a vast knowledge and experience in both the craft and art worlds. We work with a large number of corporate and individual collectors and manage an extensive data base of clients. Between us we have access to an engaged and dedicated Instagram and social media following. We have different backgrounds and expertise that as a group cover an in-depth knowledge of the art and craft market, networks, media, trends and much more. We can make a difference and are seeking innovative and exciting partners to develop events, exhibitions and strategies.
