PHILADELPHIA (Aug. 20, 2012) – Bridgette Mayer Gallery is pleased to announce the appointment of new Assistant Directors Daniel Weiner and Mark Brosseau.
Weiner comes to Bridgette Mayer Gallery from James Graham and Sons Gallery, NY where he served as a Senior Sales Associate and Head Preparator of
Exhibitions for their Contemporary Department. He brings more than 10 years of experience in exhibition preparation and gallery operations, marketing and sales.
Brosseau comes to Bridgette Mayer Gallery from Louisiana State University and Southeastern Louisiana University where he has been teaching painting and drawing for the past two years.
Prior to teaching in Baton Rouge, Brosseau served as Assistant Director at Gross McCleaf Gallery, Philadelphia. Brosseau brings more than ten years’ experience in Gallery and Artist Management, Collection Development and Sales and Marketing. He has also curated numerous exhibitions, including a well-reviewed and successful series of emerging artist summer shows and an ambitious survey of prominent painter Martha Armstrong.
In their role at Bridgette Mayer Gallery, Weiner and Brosseau will bring their extensive operational, marketing, curatorial and sales experience to the gallery program of twenty-five represented artists and help to define collections that are relevant to the artists’ works as well as opportunities nationally and internationally for the gallery artists. “Daniel Weiner and Mark Brosseau bring energy, experience and two very unique perspectives in the gallery world to my business and I am thrilled to have them join the team,” says Owner and Director Bridgette Mayer. “As we recently expanded the gallery exhibition space to 3,000 square feet and added several internationally-known artists including Federico Herrero, Ryan McGinness and German Gomez, Daniel and Mark’s hire is a wonderful validation of the growth and direction of the program. They will work to ensure that we continue to put on quality exhibitions that reach a wider audience. I am very excited to see what we create this year and how we grow the vision of the gallery.”
“I had an incredible solo exhibition at the gallery this past February resulting in many sales and the addition of my painting into the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I cannot even imagine what this year will bring with the addition of these two talented team members to the gallery staff and what they will create this year,” says Gallery Artist Federico Herrero.
“As a long standing client of the gallery I am pleased to learn about these new hires and I look forward to continued excellence in the exhibitions and placement of important works of art in my collection,” says collector K. Jones, Swarthmore, PA.
