I am thrilled that I was able to bring my online-based business back home - to Upstate New York. I always wanted to open a brick-and-mortar shop, and Saratoga made that possible. I couldn't be happier to part of the Beekman Street Arts District. I hope to see you soon! - Cassie
Collective 131 was founded in 2018 as a springboard for women artists. We believe in making art accessible and putting women in the forefront of the industry. Our online platform can help new and seasoned collectors alike find high-quality, affordable works to diversify their collection. We value transparency, efficiency, and customer service above all else. In addition to our online program, we exhibited at major art fairs such as SPRING/BREAK Art Show, the Affordable Art Fair, and Superfine! Art Fair.
In October 2020 we launched Collective 131 on Beekman, our first brick-and-mortar location in Saratoga Springs, NY. The Beekman shop is a way to bring art together with design, and help visualize how art fits into your home. Along with our collection, we offer home decor objects and small goods that align with our values: women-led, small-batch, and original.
