Coming up we have the Art on a Postcard Winter Auction! Running from Thursday 9 – Thursday 23 November, this is an extraordinary opportunity to acquire exceptional original works by highly collectible artists while raising vital funds for The Hepatitis C Trust and their vital unfunded helpline. Six distinguished guest curators have been invited to curate the auction, including Gillian Jason Gallery director, Millie Foster.
View Millie's Selection
Millie Foster, Director of Gillian Jason Gallery
Outgoing and articulate, with a gift for understanding, Millie guides the gallery’s agile collaborative attitude, working with the historical expertise established by her grandmother, while continuously approaching things through a dynamic start-up mindset.
Her background in investment banking and tech start-ups informs her efficiency and problem-solving skills, underlined by an eye for detail which applies as much to artworks as it does to operations.
A strategic thinker, she blends her relational approach with marketdriven acumen, drawing excitement from emerging markets that, as she puts it, “should have been welcomed into the spotlight long ago and are incredibly important for local artists themselves.”
For Millie, female and non-binary hold the power to drive change through the way people see, and in turn how they think.
