Guts Gallery supports underrepresented contemporary voices through initiating relationships between established and emerging artists, creating a platform and support system they are often denied. Guts Gallery is passionate about ensuring that the current structural formula that most galleries work in accordance with is refreshed and updated. To avoid following traditional modelling that is typically impermeable to marginalised artists and undervalued collectors.
Founder, Ellie Pennick is one of the youngest gallerists navigating the art world today. She is a queer working-class female artist from North Yorkshire.
Ellie experienced first-hand inequality within the art system, instead of adhering to this it spurred her on to create a business venture that benefits other struggling artists like herself. Many figures and institutions are scared to speak out about inequality in the art world, often in fear of their own precarious positions being compromised. Guts Gallery refuses to be silenced.
