Episode 537: Seasoned gallery director and new gallery owner, Cassandra Richardson talks about opening the Lexicon Gallery and her inaugural exhibition, The Garden of Earthly Delights, which she has been planning for 21 years. We talk for over an hour. It was such a great [and valuable] conversation that I didn’t cut anything out.
Episode 536: Today I talk art with photographer, curator, & editor of the No Name Collective magazine, Vanessa Ruscis. The No Name Collective features emerging artists. We will actually be working together to build a bridge of sorts from the US to Europe. She is indulging me with an audio interview. She was really nervous about her English, but I think she did great! Enjoy!
Episode 148: Today I talk to Andrea Rosen and Gillian Sewake about The Vermont Curators’ Group and their 2020 Vision Project. Its a really cool alliance of curators and they’ve got a great series of joint exhibitions planned throughout Vermont for 2020 .
Episode 139: Today I talk to Ruth Ann Thorn of The Exclusive Collections Gallery in Solana Beach, California. I found out about Ruth Ann on the Art Dealer Show podcast. I knew I had to have her on my show. She’s fabulous!
Episode 85: Today I talk with Andrea Rosen at The Fleming, at the University of Vermont. She tells me all about The Impossible Idealexhibition. She tells us how the beautiful fashions of the Victorian era were a form of misogyny. This exhibition will be up until December 15, 1018

Our research cross paths & her blog, Such Friends covers a lot of the same people in the Irish Literary Revival that I am writing about. I wanted to have her on the podcast so we could chat about the subject of my upcoming book.
