Kitty Clarke – Founder, Saint Cloche Gallery

Since 2015 Kitty Clark, Founder of Saint Cloche, made the move from the corporate world to the art world – and now she is at the epicentre of a growing community of like-minded creatives, promoting art, culture, and contemporary thinking.

Saint Cloche Gallery is a contemporary art gallery and concept space with a mission to support the work of established artists, whilst also providing a nurturing platform to champion fresh, emerging talent and present their ideas to the world. The modern gallery, situated on the corner of a four-way intersection in the heart of Paddington, is hard to miss.

The gallery is a transparent glass jewel box, the perfect place to showcase Kitty’s judicious art curation underpinned by a multi-dimensional promotional platform across many channels including strong press and social media. Being one of only a few galleries in East Sydney that gives opportunity to emerging artists has proven to be an asset, and Kitty has swiftly cultivated a new clientele of collectors who have an eager eye and appetite for her ‘reveal’.

For evolving artists it’s a non-traditional, opportunity to present their work to new audiences in a contemporary space and to collaborate with rich, diverse brands that are part of the Saint Cloche business-partner community. “Championing emerging artists and connecting them with new collectors is important to me as I believe that we cannot have a thriving art scene if we do not invest in emerging artists. It is essential that we not only promote the work of emerging artists but also give them a platform through which they can financially support their practice.” – Kitty Clark, Founder, Saint Cloche
