Some Highlights

Curator

As a participant in Easthampton’s Mills Arts Program (MAP) I curated “TaDa!, A graphic design show” during August 2014. From selecting art and communicating with the 25 artists included in the show, to marketing and promotion, to the deinstallation and art return, I did the curating, hanging, marketing, gallery attending, artist communication, and fund-raising myself.

Achiever

I created a personal project, Curatorial 365, for which I read one art/curation/exhibit essay every day for a year. I chose a phrase from each piece that resonated with me and I designed a 4×6” postcard. This project will be on display during July 2015 at Hosmer Gallery in Northampton.
