Sarah Myerscough Gallery

Established in 1999, Sarah Myerscough Gallery promotes formal and aesthetic innovations within the contemporary visual arts by breaking down boundaries between fine art, craft, design and architecture.

As a multidisciplinary platform, the gallery’s interest lies in the artist-maker’s craftsmanship, from the hand-made and high technology to the materiality and formal qualities of the work. The gallery represents emerging and established international artists and designers exhibiting in major museums.
