Anni Oates, Art World Forum Founder
The Collectors’ Club has been founded to foster START’s mission to positively change the fabric of the art world and to support emerging artists by discovering and presenting ‘tomorrow’s art today’, bringing together diverse but like minded individuals, collectors, artists and forward thinking art organisations and businesses, innovators and pioneers in the industry.
The Collectors Club's aim is to offer all year round engagement and support to START’s exhibitors from around the world. Art fairs around the world account to 56% of the annual global turnover in the art market and we at START want to do more to support galleries and artists.
The club attracts committed art philanthropists, patrons and collectors; both new and established who are building or adding to existing collections via START’s Exhibitor Circle; a small group of galleries selected for their directionality, diversity and quality
The Collectors Club includes exciting and exclusive dinners, hosted by START co-founders David and Serenella Ciclitira, as well as a range of events, artist studio visits and gallery tours
We look forward to the next START Collectors Club event and to sharing highlights via our monthly e-newsletter. You can download copies from our Press page.
Please note all events and dinners are strictly invitation only, if you are interested in attending, hosting or sponsoring a Collectors Club dinner or event please, email Gillian Anderson Price; firstname.lastname@example.org.
