Established by Anna Smithson in 2009, Smithson represents a selection of hand-picked, talented artists with a variety of styles. The gallery embraces and understands the effectiveness of medium diversity, from multi-layered screen prints to works with resin and collage; it is this openness and responsive attitude that embodies the ethos of Anna’s approach. Anna’s ability to support and mentor artists with passion and professionalism is refreshing. As a committed arts industry professional, a curator and director with 10 years of expertise in the field, Anna’s personal approach and expert eye further qualify the comprehensiveness of her gallery.
Smithson’s strong online presence allows for a greater international reach – a client base ranging from the UK to established collectors across the world. The artists are constantly evolving and new work is submitted regularly. The gallery website encourages engagement through sharing exclusive artist interviews and Smithson updates.The gallery’s diverse calendar of exhibitions and art fairs provides the perfect opportunity to curate shows specific to their environment. It is important for Smithson to engage with new audiences, to inform and inspire where possible, and of course it is always a joy to welcome back returning collectors.
“I'm always excited to see what new artists and artworks Anna at Smithson Gallery has discovered. She has an amazing knack of seeking out quality work, that will stand the test of time.” Brian Milton, Collector
