From 2016–2019, I worked as the Gallery Director for the Adobe Art Gallery, Castro Valley run by Hayward Area Recreation and Park District, (H.A.R.D.) A core group of artists exhibited with this community gallery and as a way to create a greater connection between the two, I featured their artwork on the publicity postcards.
As part of my tenure, I curated, publicized and produced five annual art exhibitions. I interfaced with artists, managed a budget, staff and coordinated volunteers. I organized gallery tours and worked with TK teachers and students to develop art projects based on exhibits. I raised $12K in an inaugural fundraiser for new mobile walls and lighting and brought in $5K in art sales.
From 2019–2020, after the Adobe Art Gallery was no longer run by H.A.R.D., I managed and produced one final exhibit: the 42nd Area Artists’ Annual Juried Exhibition at PhotoCentral Gallery, produced a slideshow of the artwork and trained staff.
