SAAS: Sofya Abbott Art Space.. Not Just a Gallery
Petite yet potent, the art space of SAAS Gallery (Sofya Abbott Art Space, named after its owner) showcases an intriguing collection of contemporary Russian and international artists, tucked away in a corner of Chelsea. While London has several galleries dedicated to classic Russian artwork, emerging voices are woefully underrepresented. Abbott perhaps cannily set up her gallery in the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, along the riverside stretch of Cheyne Walk, as there is a strong Russian community in the area. Through the SAAS Gallery, Abbott is impassioned to introduce rising stars to the UK art scene and praise enthusiastically the talents of established creatives.
Abbott has grand future plans for the SAAS Gallery, looking to encompass international talents and promote both male and female artists, with emphasis on female artists as only 16% of female artists are represented in London galleries. The SAAS Gallery also looks to create a charity foundation to support female art students in London, allowing them a space to showcase their work and generate income from the promotion and sale of their artwork with 100% of the profits returning to the artist.
