Rounding Up (June) 2 (small) by Sara Dudman RWA for Modern ArtBuyer

Outstanding additions to our portfolio

Our ethos at Modern ArtBuyer is to bring together exceptional art and passionate collectors, so with that in mind we’re excited to have unveiled our latest collaboration.

 

We’re working closely with the experienced and reputable team at One Church Street Gallery, offering them exposure on our website as a new channel to showcase their well-curated portfolio of artists. We’ve kicked off with the beautifully-observed paintings by Sara Dudman RWA, the collaborative, intriguing abstracts from Robinson & McMahon and the technical brilliance of Ian Robinson. Their work is now available to browse and buy directly through our website and, as always, viewings can be arranged with pleasure.

 

It’s an inspiring venture for us. We hope you are equally inspired by their exceptional works.

Plum Neasmith adorns the walls of the Royal Academy

The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition is always firmly in our calendar each year. It can be a mixed bag but it’s a great barometer for current trends and artist practices. And we’ve heard good things about this year’s show co-ordinated by Richard Wilson RA who describes it as “unpredictable, stimulating and startling”.

 

So we’re delighted that Modern ArtBuyer artist Plum Neasmith has had two paintings accepted into this year’s show. Both paintings have already sold and we have sold more of her work subsequently – recognition of her integrity and quality. We’ll be taking her work to Affordable Art Fairs later in the year, so look out for updates.

 

Our congratulations to Plum!

Striking a pose at Bath in Fashion

Bath in Fashion is always such a vibrant, fun week and we want to be part of that buzz. So to join the party, we’ve teamed up with and luxury business & holiday rentals company Bath Boutique Stays to mark Bath in Fashion 2016.

 

We love Bath Boutique Stays’ style – a chic home from home – so this creative collaboration seems like a perfect fit.

 

Artworks by Modern ArtBuyer artists Emma Cowlam and Maria Rivans will be exhibited in Bath Boutique Stays properties throughout April to mark the annual fashion event in Bath. These artists’ works have been selected for their strong sense of style and focus on fashion. Emma Cowlam, whose first collection was bought by the V&A, produces chic hand-stitched fashion illustrations while Maria Rivans’ Pin Up series, which was recently exhibited in a solo show at the Saatchi Gallery London, is clearly influenced by vintage style and striking millinery.

 

For more information on how you can stay in one of Bath Boutique Properties’ apartments, just click here.

 

We hope to see you there!
