Zuleika Gallery was founded in Oxford in 2015 by Lizzie Collins, who has been working in the art world for over 20 years. Zuleika Gallery’s focus is on international emerging contemporary art and Modern British art.
Zuleika Gallery is not bound by medium and represents painters, printmakers, ceramicists and sculptors. The gallery presents work of the highest quality to an international audience of collectors.
Lizzie is a History of Art graduate of UCL, and postgraduate of the Courtauld Institute in London. Lizzie worked in London for many years at both Christie’s and Bonhams as a specialist and department director in the 20th Century British Art departments, and latterly at Bonhams in Oxford.
Lizzie has travelled internationally to advise collectors and has a broad range of experience in valuing entry-level to high-end collections. Lizzie is also the Curator for the Saïd Business School, Oxford University, where she set up the Art programme in 2016.
Lizzie opened a permanent space in St James’s, the heart of London’s art world, in 2017, on the 3rd Floor of Riverwide House at 6 Masons Yard. The gallery space is perfect for showcasing work on a domestic scale. The building, which has historic roots in the art world, is known for housing the Indica Gallery in the 1960s where John Lennon and Yoko Ono first met.
In August 2020, Lizzie opened a second permanent space in Woodstock, Oxfordshire. This two-room gallery is nestled next to the Oxfordshire Museum – opposite the historic Bear hotel and a stone’s throw from Blenheim Palace, home of the Blenheim Art Foundation.
