UA Satellite Exhibition

Jan. 20th to Feb. 1st 2009

This small picture show is a fascinating contemporary collection of fine quality oil, watercolour and acrylic paintings, prints and sculpture by internationally recognised and emerging artists from The United Society of Artists.

For the past twelve months the art world has been a safe haven against the credit crunch. With nose diving property prices and an extremely volatile Stock Market, options for investments are narrowing for investors seeking alternatives to improving their portfolios.

Investing in contemporary art, purchased directly from the artist at venues without a 50% mark up or VAT added onto the purchase price, has become an increasingly popular and attractive investment alternative. These contemporary originals usually increase in annual value considerably more than shares. There is also the added value of collectors enjoying their purchase in their offices or at home and being able to meet the artists to discuss their work.

An increasing number of artists are currently selling work through these non-traditional means, forming co-operatives or groups.  With this in mind eleven members of the United Society of Artists will be showcasing their work by holding a satellite exhibition at the Fountain Gallery. This small welcoming gallery is the perfect place to start or expand a collection in a more relaxed setting than the sanitised, clinical white cube of commercial galleries.

Works are affordably priced between £100 and £2000.

Exhibitors: Chris Francis, Rosie Gwilliam, Jan Harrington, Martin Ireland, James Matthews, Hazel Mountford, Khin Myint, Karen Neale, Tom Real, Ged Rumak, Tin Tin Sann.
