About

Argentea Gallery is dedicated to showing the very best contemporary photography from both British and international artists.

Our aim is to support the careers of both emerging and established artists by promoting an awareness and appreciation of contemporary photography and by providing a platform where ideas and practices can be explored and tested. In pursuit of this we will present a programme of well researched, stimulating and thoughtful exhibitions supported by appropriate events and publications.

In addition to the curated programme, we also have a Print Room holding portfolios of works for sale by selected artists across a broad price range.

Beyond our represented artists we can also source and advise on the purchase of work from other photographers and collections on your behalf.

 

Jennie Anderson is a curator, photographic consultant and founder of Argentea Gallery.  She holds a first class degree in photography and, to enhance a scholarship of art history and collections, a Master’s degree in the history of photography from Sotheby’s Institute of Art, London.  Alongside curating the gallery’s exhibition programme, she participates in portfolio reviews, jury panels and international art fairs.  She is passionate about mentoring the photographers she works with and works closely with collectors and curators to place their work in both private and public collections.

Anna Sparham joined the gallery in May 2019 after relocating from London back to her hometown, Birmingham.  She has spent the last 15 years working at the Museum of London, predominantly as Curator of Photographs.  Alongside developing their historic and contemporary photography collections, Anna realised several temporary exhibitions and publications including London Street Photography (co-curated 2011), Soldiers and Suffragettes: The Photography of Christina Broom (2015) and in 2018 London Nights.  Prior to moving to London, Anna graduated with a first class degree in photography from Nottingham Trent University before pursuing a career in the heritage sector.  She is an independent curator and researcher and now brings her extensive experience to the commercial photographic scene.
