Kathryn Markel, Principle of Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Kathryn Markel began her eponymous gallery in 1976 with the belief that contemporary art can be beautiful as well as visually and intellectually rigorous, and that acquiring it should be a source of pleasure and self-discovery.  For almost 40 years, we have helped collectors find the art that speaks to them, and, therefore, exhibit a diverse group of artists united by hard-won craft, compelling intellectual framework, and a love of the art-making process.

Prior to opening her gallery, she worked as the primary travelling salesperson for Landfall Press, a lithographic workshop in Chicago.  She attended Northwestern University and graduated with a BA in Art History from the University of Illinois.  She is also a member of Arttable,. and is the former Board Chairman of GlassRoots, a non-profit hot glass studio in Newark that teaches glassmaking to at risk youth.
