Are there artists who work in lace technique and sell their work? If one wanted to buy a piece of contemporary lace, made using a lace technique, not just something in another technique that looks lacey, who would one contact? What are the names of specific artists, dealers or galleries that you would contact who would have work for sale, with prices, etc.

In the state of Illinois there is the Illinois Artisans Shop in downtown Chicago.  (I think there are 1 or 2 additional locations.)  It is sponsored by the Illinois Arts Council, an agency of the state government.  I understood that there were other states that were doing the same thing:  promoting the work of state citizens who were artisans.  

Many years ago I was a member and they had 2 of my pieces.  Nothing sold.  The public couldn't fathom the price.  I don't know if they currently have any textile artists participating.  If they do I would expect quilters or weavers.  The public will buy quilts or hand woven articles.  The public still can't grasp lace as art, except for a very few rare individuals.  

Your question is a good one.  Of course, nowadays, the internet eliminates the need for a middleman such as a gallery or dealer.  All you need is a blog or personal website, and enough sense to use good tags, and you can advertize and promote your own work.


Good question, good answer. A very interesting topic. 

Did you mean in the USA or worldwide?  Here in Cape Town, South Africa is a visual artist who does work in bobbin lace. His website is http://www.pierrefouche.net/sculptures-textiles.php.  It is worthwhile have a look at his work.

The one called Psamma arenaria is very interesting.

Yes, this work is very interesting. Thanks.

One of his pieces was posted on the Bobbin Lace Makers group on facebook several months ago.
