The Birmingham Contemporary Art Gallery is privately run by husband and wife team, Albert and Sarah Wallace. Albert is an artist who has always had a passion for developing alternative concepts and using that as a backdrop for promoting new ideas. He has also worked alongside Dudley and Staffordshire local councils for over 18 years and as a manager for children residential establishments in Birmingham.

Sarah has run her own marketing and PR recruitment business since 2011 and has always been an entrepreneur at heart. With their shared vision they decided to combine their expertise and passion and create something unique, original and beautiful.

In line with our philosophy of using art to affect social change, the gallery will take a grassroots approach to art and wholeness; creativity goes beyond materialism, it is an expression of imagination and a powerful vehicle for social change. We will be working with local and regional artists, businesses and other enterprises to promote their programmes and using our space as a means of inspiring and encouraging the general public who wouldn’t ordinarily visit a gallery.
