Joy is Bridgette Mayer’s focus and motivation
September 1, 2021
Roberta speaks with gallerist Bridgette Mayer about her gallery, her passion for working with and helping artists and about how joy is the focus for everything she does. The 32-minute interview is a lively conversation that covers some great material.
Bridgette Mayer started her eponymous gallery in 2001, at the age of 26, right out of college and after she had spent time working in New York galleries and saw how poorly they treated their artists. From that time on, she wanted to work with artists and not against them, and help them achieve success in their careers.
Artblog has followed Bridgette and her gallery from almost its inception, and we have written about her, and about the artists in her gallery stable, like Tim McFarlane, Rebecca Rutstein, Charles Burwell, Eileen Neff — and more.
Right now, I’m excited about two things: Tim McFarlane’s current solo exhibition at the gallery and Bridgette’s “Art MBA” workshop “The Empowered Artist,” taking place online Saturday, Sept. 11, 9 AM – 6 PM. I am one of 7 speakers in the all-day workshop and will be talking with Bridgette at 9:30 AM about all things media-related, and I hope you can join us! There will be a Q&A for participants and I’m always happy to answer questions.
