V1.2 update is required to unlock this feature.
After making 60 donations to the Museum, of any combination of Fish, Bugs, and Fossils, Blathers will tell you that he'd like the Museum to be expanded to showcase works of art.
You might need to talk to him twice if you've met the requirements, but Blathers doesn't mention art when you talk to him the first time. After he does, you'll be able to donate art to him.
In her daily broadcast, Isabelle will announce that a "suspicious character" is visiting the island.
If you see this announcement, Redd will be standing somewhere on your island. You won't be able to enter his boat, until you talk to him!
Once you find and talk to Redd, he will offer to sell you a piece of art.
At first, he will sell it to you at a ridiculous price, but keep talking to him to get a Cousin's Discount, lowering the price to 4,980 Bells.
Donate the art you bought, to Blathers at the Museum.
At this point, Blathers will apply for an expansion of the Museum to have the Art Gallery added. The expansion will take 2 days.
It will be announced that the Museum has expanded to have an Art Gallery. You will also be warned of fake art circulating.
Find Redd so he can invite you to his Treasure Trawler at the back of your island, and finally be able to buy more art. Watch out for his fake art!
The first few times you meet Redd, he will be walking around your island. After donating art to the Museum and talking to him again, he will tell you where he can be found, and you can now start visiting him in his Treasure Trawler.
Redd's Treasure Trawler can be found at the Secret Beach in the back of your island, so make sure you've made it accessible with stairs or terraforming! He visits randomly, only once a week, so always check his wares when you get the chance!
See the list of all paintings and statues in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and how to spot fake art.
You can inspect the art pieces available up close at his Treasure Trawler before buying, so you'll need to train your eye to spot authentic art from fakes! Art sold here are based on art from real life, so you can look up the original work of art before buying!
|Game8 Strategy Team||The art above is based on "Rooster and Hen with Hydrangeas" by Ito Jakuchu. It looks exactly like this except that the real painting has blue flowers instead of red, so this art is fake.|
The fake painting has the eyebrows raised.
Not all art that Redd sells are real, so it is important to know that it matches the original work in real life.
You will know when art is fake when you try to donate it to Blathers at the Museum, or if you sell it at Nook's Cranny.
The place is managed by Redd, a sly fox making his return to New Horizons. He'll be selling Works of Art, and will, of course, have no qualms about selling fakes to his cousins, business as usual!
Choose which art to buy carefully, or if you have other players on the island, you can have them buy art on the day of the visit too.
You can donate real art to Blathers at the Museum to be displayed at the Art Gallery. There are paintings, statues, and sculptures to collect, so keep visiting Redd!
Redd also sells furniture of rare colors that are not found at Nook's Cranny. It is also possible that exclusive furniture will be available here in the future.
In the past Animal Crossing games, there were items you could get only through purchasing it from Redd, so we think there might be exclusive items in New Horizons as well.
Redd will become available after the Ver. 1.2 update which includes the Nature Day event.
"... To participate in this event, players will need to download the latest game update and have a Nintendo Account linked to their user profile."

Similar to the Bunny Day event, you might need to link a Nintendo Account to your profile to trigger the event. Also, make sure that your game is up to date!
You have to download the next update which contains the data for the Art Gallery section for the Museum, and Jolly Redd's Treasure Trawler.
If you already have the Ver. 1.2 update, you need to donate at least 60 Fish, Fossils or Bugs and talk to Blathers to trigger the Art Gallery conversation. After doing so, follow the steps above.
|First Appearance||Animal Crossing|
Redd will try to swindle you into paying a ridiculously high price for questionable art. Don't fall for it! Talk to him again and he'll be desperate enough to give you his cousin's discount. No wonder he used to be called Crazy Redd in previous titles. Watch out for his fake art!
