COLLECTION SERVICES


FERRIN CONTEMPORARY works with private collectors and artist archives throughout the country organizing, documenting, and appraising works in preparation for a deacquisition or placement. We use our extensive experience and relationships within the field of ceramics to position this work back in the marketplace.

We provide customized services for artists interested in legacy projects, such as but not limited to, retrospective catalogs and exhibitions, museum or institutional acquisitions, auction house sales, and long-term archival care for a collection.


TOURING PROGRAMS


Based on our curatorial and exhibition productions, Ferrin Contemporary continues to bolster museum and artist relationships with touring programs. Our expanding team collaborates with artists, institutions, galleries, and museums to build collections, provide exhibition opportunities, and provide curated show packages across the United States with our international roster of artists.

Ferrin Contemporary is committed to developing relationships with museums and cultural institutions that collect, exhibit, and engage the public about ceramics. For over 40 years, Leslie Ferrin has been a leading specialist in contemporary ceramic art, mounting exhibitions, cataloging collections, presenting scholarship, and supporting creative projects. She has placed work in the permanent collections of museums nationwide, facilitated loans for temporary exhibitions, and coordinated the tours of traveling exhibitions.
