Since its inception, Art UK has only been able to succeed thanks to the participation of the many hundreds of art collections across the country. Over the years we have built up partnerships with over 3,000 collections, from Shetland to the Isles of Scilly, and from the smallest collection to national holdings of art.

This incredible network of knowledge is a valuable asset where curators and other staff can come together on a shared platform to research and share the artworks in their care.

Our Partners are key stakeholders in Art UK, and we are grateful for their ongoing support and valuable feedback.

Partner collections support Art UK financially by paying an annual subscription. This allows them to:

  • participate in the Art UK Shop to generate revenue at no extra cost
  • publicise events and exhibitions through listings and stories
  • add more artworks to Art UK (prints, drawings, watercolours and photography, alongside painting and sculpture)
