Welcome to our first Spotlight post. We will be conducting a series of interviews with art world leaders who inspire us, by going beyond the white walls to get their thoughts on everything from the future of the art market, to their go-to neighborhood eateries.
First up is Martha Campbell, an art world veteran who began her career at The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., and then worked for several years in the gallery world at Spanierman Modern in New York City before founding her own gallery with Christine Berry.
Along with her co-owner, Martha runs Berry Campbell Gallery in Chelsea, NY. The gallery has a growing roster of prominent artists who work in the modernist tradition, including artists’ estates.
