At Cavaliero Finn, we don’t follow fashion or design trends in our selection of work; the emphasis is on originality and craftsmanship of the highest standard. We seek out quality, heirloom pieces which all have one thing in common: a stand-alone aesthetic beauty that will stand the test of time.
We have built up an exceptional reputation amongst our clients and within the industry for showcasing the finest works from emerging, mid-career and established contemporary artists and makers.
We focus on identifying emerging talent from degree shows and artists’ studios when their work is affordable, and as a result, enjoy sharing their success as their talents and careers blossom. The value of some artworks has increased in value four-fold since the company has been formed.
Cavaliero Finn is still passionately run by the founders Juliana Cavaliero and Debra Finn who first met studying art at Warwick University and established contemporary art and design gallery Cavaliero Finn in 2004.
In addition to the curated selection of art and design available through the online gallery, the company curates regular exhibitions at its home galleries in South East London and in Lyme Regis, Dorset as well as participating in contemporary art fairs within the UK. It also provides an intimate consultative service to both corporate and private clients in commissioning bespoke artworks for their homes and offices. The gallery has placed work in several museum collections including The Victoria and Albert Museum, The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, The Swindon Museum and Art Gallery and the Manchester Art Gallery.
Before forming the company, Juliana Cavaliero spent ten years in the contemporary art world including the Anthony D’Offay Gallery in London and Debra Finn spent ten years in PR ending up on the board of Consolidated working with a range of consumer clients within the Virgin Group.
COVID19 has caused many disruptions for the Art, Craft and Design worlds. Fairs are being cancelled, exhibitions postponed, and more and more things have been moved online. During this time, Cavaliero Finn has been actively supporting its artists online through regular artist features and through the day-to-day promotion of their work on social media.
In addition, the gallery has also formed a collaborative working relationship with four other commercial galleries involved in the contemporary craft sector who, like us, have become increasingly concerned about the effect these disruptions are having on the market and the ability for great work to be seen.
Working with jaggedart, MADEINBRITALY, Ting Ying and Vessel Gallery under the umbrella brand of Crafting a Difference the galleries have come together with curator Brian Kennedy to develop projects to increase the visibility of the contemporary object within today’s changed landscape.
