Coates and Scarry is Chippy Coates and Richard Scarry; partners in business and in life.
Coates and Scarry began in 2009, when we started blogging about the art and artists from around the world who inspire us. In just a few short years, the fan base for our blog grew so dramatically that, after dozens of requests from Facebook fans and followers to showcase our favourite, talented artists, we started to curate, exhibit and sell artworks under the name Coates and Scarry.
From a local exhibition in Bristol in 2010, our lives have changed dramatically: we now exhibit internationally, both at art fairs but also in collaboration with major museums and galleries where we combine resources and experience to provide a stellar platform for groundbreaking shows. Exhibitions include: Modern Fabulists at View, Bristol, in 2011; Unnatural-Natural History at the Royal West of England Academy in 2012; and Trailblazers at Above Second, Hong Kong in 2013.
And we are also here to help and advise if you are looking to buy fine art. Whether you are an established collector or newcomer, looking to acquire a single work or build a collection, to buy fine art is always exciting, engaging and rewarding. The key is to get involved, make contacts, build relationships and, above all, look, look, look - go to shows, visit art fairs, galleries and open studios, attend openings, get on mailing lists, peruse auction catalogues and, books you can’t see enough art!
