WAYS TO ART

 
FORMS Collect is a platform and a service for collectors, art lovers and others who are exploring the world of art and artists. It’s a channel where you can discover new talent or be reminded about why you love something that has been around for a while. Created by FORMS Gallery, FORMS Collect publishes monthly features on individual artists and curated capsule collections of artworks that are available to purchase.

FORMS Collect also offers a bespoke collection development service. This focuses on creating your collecting strategy, sourcing artworks, and planning the display, care and preservation of your collection. More than merely offering advice, this service exists to help you get the most out of the adventure of looking at, buying and living with art.
