Artfully Sorted is an art consultancy, which is clearly going from strength to strength. It was founded by Wimbledon-based Charissa Risley. We caught up with Charissa to talk about her latest projects and events…
Artfully Sorted sources unique works of art, photography and sculpture for private residences and businesses. Providing their expertise, they assist their clients in finding that finishing touch to their space. Artfully Sorted currently works with 40 local artists, as well as a few partner galleries, thereby offering their clients a wide range to choose from. The image above features Charissa with one of her artists, well-known Wimbledon artist Jo Holdsworth at her solo show ‘Viewing Figures’ at the Norman Plastow Gallery, Wimbledon Village alongside Wendy Pridmore, Chief Executive of Wimbledon Guild.
Charissa believes passionately that art finishes a home and is thrilled to be broadening its reach by finding art some fabulous forever homes to hang in. Their service has been called “genius” and “amazing”.
The service involves an initial consultation onsite if the client is based in London or Surrey, or through a video call if further afield. At this session, pictures of the walls are taken and together with the client, they browse through their portfolio of artists, which aides in narrowing down preferences. Charissa and her team will return with a shortlist of paintings, either to physically try out if available, or will present digital mock ups of the artwork set against their walls.
For a lot of people, buying art can be challenging to find the right piece to fit one’s space, taste and budget. Artfully Sorted guides clients through that process by helping them visualise how different options might work. Should artwork be purchased, a percentage of art sales is donated to the children’s arts charity, Artists in Residence.
This Spring, Artfully Sorted is exhibiting at the Affordable Art Fair, Battersea 12 – 15 March 2020. The AAF, with over two decades of providing stunning original artworks to thousands of visitors every year, is the go-to-place for experienced collectors and first-time art buyers alike. Artfully Sorted is thrilled to be showcasing some of their artists, including Wimbledon artist Katharine Rowe, on her Stand D9. Jo’s paintings can be found on stand F7 with the 508 Gallery, so lots of great reasons to visit.
Jo’s paintings can also be seen at her Royal Arts Prize Visitors’ Choice Award Winners’ Show with artist Clare Law at the Royal Opera Arcade Gallery, Pall Mall from 9-14 March. More details here.
