CALL FOR UPSCALE WEARABLE ART
October 26, 2018/ November 29, 2018
Do you create wearable art with a price tag too high for the Craft fair market, and are looking to reach the upscale collector clientele? Whitespace Collection introduces a premier boutique event, Collect12345, for the most unique wearable designs: jewelry, textiles, and sculptural accessories.
Seeking items priced at a minimum of $80 per item, and maximum of $1500 per item. Items may be one of a kind or in multiple, but should have the level of craft and innovation expected for the upscale market.
10 artisans will be selected and featured for each event.
Juried and hosted by Whitespace-The Mordes collection, West Palm Beach, Fl. Whitespace has established the brand, featuring work by fine jewelry artisans at the Boca Raton Museum of art, Aqua Art Fair – Miami, Art Palm Beach, Art Wynwood – Miami, Boca Raton Art Fair and now Chicago, Naples and the Fine Art, Antique and Jewelry Fair, numerous upscaled charitable boutiques and art events among others, and has attracted a following, retaining a large number of collectors of unique wearables.
Collect12345 could be the unique opportunity for you to reach this select audience, as the the boutique will be for one weekend each month, during the peak of collector season.
