Jacquelyn Jubert // Founder
Jacquelyn established Anise Gallery in 2012 after the extensive renovation of the spice warehouse in Shad Thames and has exhibited a range of early- to mid-career artists in a range of forms from large-scale installation to virtual reality. Participating in London’s annual high profile architectural events such as the London Festival of Architecture and Open House London has firmly established the gallery within the art and architectural world. Anise Gallery’s annual Summer Graduate Show curated under Jacquelyn’s direction, provides a platform for graduates in London’s art scene.
Prior to Anise Gallery Jacquelyn gained valuable knowledge into the industry through working for a variety of galleries in Surrey and London, including the Rebecca Hossack Gallery in Fitzrovia. She also spent 10 years as executive assistant to renowned architect Piers Gough which gave her the background, knowledge and passion for architecture which now forms the backbone of Anise Gallery’s ethos.
Jacquelyn is a member of the Association of Women Art Dealers and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
