For nine years I ran two galleries on the campus of Roberts Wesleyan College, Rochester, NY. In 2011, I moved to Corning, NY where I served as Gallery Manager for The Glass Menagerie Gallery. Soon thereafter, I opened my own gallery, Spencer Hill Gallery, a small commercial space where I represented 22 American artists. In 2014, I moved to Delaware where I joined the Board of Directors at The Delaware Contemporary, a non-profit contemporary art museum. In 2017, I began serving as the museum’s Gretchen Hupfel Curator of Contemporary Art. In the spring of 2020, I retired as the curator at The Delaware Contemporary. In early 2021, I began serving as the curator and Project Director for John William Gallery out of my office/studio in upstate New York. We have locations in Delaware and Florida.
While at The Delaware Contemporary, I organized close to 46 exhibitions, including major feature shows such as Wendell Castle and Nancy Jurs’ Then and Now (2017); group exhibition The Figure: The Indicative and the Allusive (2019); Monique Rollins’ traveling exhibition, Eastern Poesia, in China (2019); Stan Smokler and Rick Rothrock’s Origins (2019); Peter Wayne Lewis’ Beijing Booster Paintings (2019); and a group exhibition of female photographers, Focal Points: Women Advancing the Aperture (2020).
My experiences taught me the varied aspects of working in academia, the commercial sector, and the non-profit arena. Throughout my career, I’ve curated hundreds of exhibitions with artists all over the world. I feel honored to have served them, encouraged them, and given them opportunities to share their work, their stories, and their journeys.
