About

Director and Founder of Guts Gallery, Ellie Pennick is one of the youngest gallerists navigating the art world today. As a working-class, queer Northerner with no art background, Pennick's footing in the art world came through her frustrations at the politics of the arts education system, and lack of opportunities available.

After receiving a place at a renowned institution in London, but unable to accept her place due to her financial status, Pennick began to question the wider, social austerity within the arts. Pennick launched Guts to generate a fair art-business model "worth far more importance to me than a piece of paper with a Masters grade on it", and to champion emerging artists, helping artists to demand respect - and ownership - they deserve.
