Regional Fine Art

Chautauqua Art Gallery opened in 2018 in Lakewood N.Y. as a place to create and showcase regional artwork. We currently showcase nine incredible artists, all of whom currently reside in, or have ties to Chautauqua County.

Over the past 13 years I have regularly shown my paintings at regional and national galleries and competitions, including Women Create - Jamestown NY, Maryland Federation of Art - Annapolis MD, and Chautauqua Annual Exhibition of Contemporary Art - Chautauqua N.Y. I am thrilled to now have a gallery space to call my own.

My Background:

I reside with my family in nearby Jamestown NY. Having grown up in Chautauqua County I went on to receive a BA in Commercial Art with a minor in Art History, from the Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester N.Y. in 2005.  Upon receiving my BA I spent six years in Northern Virginia working as a print/web designer and freelance artist before relocating back to Chautauqua County where I was fortunate to be employed as Chautauqua Institution’s Digital Communications Manager for nearly seven years before opening Chautauqua Art Gallery.
