Join our family of artists

At Partnership Editions we strive to break down the elitism of the art world by making exceptional art accessible to all. In keeping with these values, we are excited to launch an Open Call on 3rd November as a springboard for emerging art talent.

To celebrate the launch of our first homeware collection, we’re inviting artists working across a variety of mediums – from ceramics and glassware to textiles and furniture – to submit their work. Our selection committee of experts will help us pick a group of artists to become a part of the new Partnership Editions Home family of artists.


THE OPPORTUNITY

You'll be featured in a dedicated online Open Call exhibition alongside other finalists which will be given its own photo shoot, PR campaign, and dedicated marketing campaign to our social and newsletter following.

You'll join the PE family of artists which will give you a dedicated profile page on the website and  the opportunity to participate in our busy schedule of artwork and home drops, exhibitions and events throughout the year.

As a PE artist you'll also be offered PR, marketing and industry support throughout the year to help you evolve your practice and reach new collectors.

MEET THE SELECTION COMMITTEE

Alongside our founder, Georgia Spray, our selection committee is made up of designers, artists and tastemakers in the interiors and homeware space. They will be using their expertise and excellent eye to help us unearth and shine a light on new talent.


Charlie Porter, Founder of Tat London

Charlie Porter started Tat London in 2016. She worked on it while she was a stylist at House & Garden Magazine. After three and a half years at House & Garden, she left to work on Tat full time. Initially, it was primarily an online market-place, filled with everything from 18th Century Spanish portraits to 70s egg cups. But with Charlie's lust for the world of interiors not completely satisfied, she felt the need to develop an online editorial where she could interview, review and shout about other brands, peoples and places that she enjoys.

Fred Rigby, Furniture and Interior Designer

Fred has been making things since childhood, inspired by the natural elements of the Dorset countryside where he was raised. His studies in art, product and furniture design at Kingston University have informed his conceptual approach, which blurs the line between art and design.

In 2008 he founded Fred Rigby Studio, a London-based furniture and interior design practice. The independent studio works across scales from complete interiors to sculptural yet functional furniture that adds playfulness, presence and comfort to everyday life.
