Artist Development

The Art Collection Team is a small but ambitious and experienced curatorial team. We supports artists locally, regionally, nationally and internationally – and at all career levels. From students and graduates through to established artists, we offer support and development through: commissions, exhibition opportunities, studio visits, bid-writing support, networking and more.

More info coming soon!

Studio Visits

We can offer in-person (covid permitting) and online studio visits with artists based in Greater Manchester, or artists with a clear link to our Collecting Policies and areas of expertise. You might want to: discuss your artist statement, review your website and online presence, consider networking opportunities, or review your recent work and exhibitions.

Please Contact Us to arrange an informal discussion. (We are a small team with limited capacity, so please bear this in mind!)
