At Strange Tracey we build relationships. We deal directly with the artists we mange, we visit studios, discuss process, techniques and influences. We share our artists’ hopes and aspirations and help to achieve them.
With our in depth knowledge of the market we have searched the globe for art that we love. From The USA to South Africa to Europe we have chosen a stable of artists to exhibit with Affordable Art Fair who we believe to be exceptional; skillful and considered in their approach and execution.
Clients instinctively know what they love and with our breadth of knowledge in both connoisseurship and the art market, we can give them the confidence to buy.
After graduating with an MA in History of Art, Tracey McNee studied Connoisseurship and The Art market with Christie’s in New York, thereafter entering their graduate programme. Discovering a passion for dealing directly with artists Tracey joined acclaimed photography dealer Peter Hay Halpert Fine Art based in New York’s Chelsea. This helped cement a love for contemporary art and building relationships with artists.
On returning to the UK, Tracey set up her first gallery in Glasgow in 2001, quickly expanding to a second space in Mayfair, London. A major part of the business was attending art fairs in the UK and Europe and these ‘adventures’ quickly became the main focus of the business. Affordable Art Fair Battersea was the first art fair attended 20 years ago and remains a fixture in our calendar.
