Gallery One (g-1) was formed in 2005 by Gregg and Jane Sedgwick. With a vision to become the world's leading branded gallery group, the Company has grown from a single 350 square foot store in Dubai to 10 retail gallery stores in four countries. It continues to expand with the aim to own and operate 100 retail stores in three Continents by 2015.
Gregg describes the vision as "democratising art". This he aims to achieve by creating gallery spaces for all - welcoming, informative and accessible. "Traditionally, galleries have not been great consumer experiences - they can be austere and intimidating. At Gallery One, we are a branded experience which is consistent, familiar and friendly. Add great products by incredibly talented artists and it's no surprise that we are out-selling most traditional gallery formats".
