After graduating with a degree in History of Art, Tracey McNee studied Connoisseurship and The Art market with Christie’s in New York. Discovering a passion for dealing directly with artists Tracey joined Perter 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 2000, 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 business.
AAF London was the first art fair attended 16 years ago and remains a fixture on our calendar. Other fairs included The London Art Fair, Art London, Art Chelsea, AAF Amsterdam, AAF Bristol, Dublin Art Fair, Cannes Art Fair, Olympia, Form and many others.
