www.theartagency.co.uk will be selling original art work by emerging and established British contemporary artists via their ‘rolling art gallery’ at a selection of carefully chosen venues in London and the South East rather than via a traditional gallery. The launch exhibition is at The Landmark Arts Centre, 1st – 3rd May (10am – 5pm daily – free admission).
Before having families, Emma and Alison previously had successful careers, Emma at the Financial Times and Alison at Dennis Publishing. Now they have started a business in a field that they are both passionate about and have experience of through working at and attending art fairs – and being art collectors themselves.
Emma Riley: ‘We felt there was a gap in the art market for an innovative and flexible approach to make original art more accessible, in the £250-£3,000 bracket . We don’t have the overheads of a gallery and showing our clients at a wide selection of venues means we can bring different audiences to each of our shows.
The Art Agency has a fantastic selection of British Contemporary Art to showcase – abstract photography from the renowned lifestyle photographer Xander Casey, stunning landscapes from Felicity Keefe, Katharine Le Hardy, Charles Penny and Graham Towler, spectacular sculpture from Guy Reid, abstract art by ex-cartographer Esther Hartley, intricate cityscapes of London and Rome by Noel Paine, prize-winning figurative paintings by Paul Lemmon and more. As well as this talented list, other artists will be available at the launch exhibition – come along to find out who will join them.
