Hello Clarette, (I sounded a bit like Hannibal Lecter

There are many great sources for finding out about the UK contemporary
art market but the best source must be the Contemporary Art Society.
Since on their web site they confirm.

"We promote the collecting of contemporary art through our gifts to
public museums and the advice and guidance we offer companies and

They are a charity supported by the arts council and one of their
mandates is to help people like yourself, so I am sure if you email
them, they will be happy to provide further assistance.

Other Sources

There are a whole host of various other sources for your needs on this
page that I found at

The Guardian,3605,641434,00.html

There you will find lists of up to the date magazines which give news,
sales information and advice from a variety of sources such as

Art Monthly

Art Review 

The Art Newspaper 

There are directories listed there for information and contact
information for various galleries.

And the most relevant one for your question is the listing of trade
associations and their contact details and web addresses.
