Angela King

Gallery Director

Angela is a California native but after 32 years considers New Orleans home. She has a large family there (she's 7th born of 12) so California is always a vacation destination for her. Adventure moved her to New Orleans in 1977. Her love of art and creative spirit guided her into the art world in the late 70's. She moved to NOLA to open a California craft gallery in 1977 that evolved into an art gallery by 1983, shifting to original paintings when she became a partner in '93. She then continued until 2006 when she started her own gallery post Katrina.

Having longterm friendships and honest relationships with her gallery team and her artists have been the foundation of her success. "Surround yourself with talent, nurture it, show flexibility, stability, intention, truth and love, and the potential is limitless".

Malcolm Genet

Fine Art Consultant

Malcolm was born in New Orleans. As a senior member of the staff, he has been largely responsible for interviewing and writing about our artists for our paper and web publications. On the side, he has written copy for many artists, including Peter Max, Luigi Rocca, Richard Currier, Michelle Gagliano, and Mackenzie Thorpe. "You don't have to know anything about art or the artists to love art," he says, "but it actually is fun to look into these things, and it frequently opens doors in your mind and helps you be more receptive to unfamiliar subjects and styles." Malcolm has a BA from Tulane University and an MA and PhD from the University of California at Berkeley.

Kathy O'Shaughnessy

Administrator

Kathy was born in St. Louis Missouri and first came to New Orleans in 1963.

She has been a New Orleanian for the past forty-five years. A career as a house painter first brought Kathy to the gallery to paint the walls, and she stayed on, first as a shipper and later as an administrator.
Kathy is the number cruncher, building manager, and go to girl for all around paper managing behind the scene, and did we say, indispensable?

The things that keep Kathy going and growing are the same things that bring her the most joy: her best friend of thirty years, Lesley; her great kids and wonderful grandsons; camping, yoga, and meditation.
