The WAAM is pleased to welcome our new Gallery Director Carl Van Brunt. As Gallery Director, the primary focus of Carl’s work will be membership, member exhibitions, and publicity.
Carl Van Brunt is uniquely qualified based on his work as a gallery owner/director, his extensive work in marketing and publicity, and his collaborative endeavors with not-for-profits. Since 2002, Carl has run his own gallery in Beacon, NY (www.vanbruntgallery.com) and was a founding member and four-year Vice Chair of the Beacon Arts Community Association/BACA. Prior to opening his gallery, Carl had a long career in advertising and has applied his marketing and promotion skills to his own businesses and to other projects he’s been involved with in the past, such as BACA and Art Along the Hudson.
The interview process with Carl revealed a serious commitment to promoting regional artists, as well as a thorough understanding of the nuts-and-bolts of running a gallery, communicating with artists, etc.
Please join us on Saturday, April 3, 4-6 pm at our next opening reception to meet and welcome Carl to the WAAM.
