All We Art announces, Through Her Eyes a discussion featuring Luisa Elena Vidaurre, Andrea Pollan and Lisa Brown, cosponsored by The Artinista Art Advisory. The three panelists will explore the challenges and rewards of being a gallery owner in today’s every changing art world. They will explore some of their lessons learned and the tips and tricks they have picked up over their combined 32-year tenure in the art community. A suggested $10 donation for the event will benefit The River People Initiative.
After a long, successful career on the financial and private banking arena, occupying important positions in both private and public companies and institutions, Luisa Elena Vidaurre, switched her focus to a more creative outlet. With a passion for and many years devoted to Human Rights advocacy activities, Vidaurre focused on using art to help her home country of Venezuela. Her passion for creativity led her to be the co-creator ad developer of All-Media Art Competitions with international exhibitions. She eventually transplanted to Washington, DC to become the Founder and co-owner of All We Art, a gallery dedicated to sharing international, specifically Latin American, art.
Andrea Pollan is a curator, gallerist, art consultant, writer and appraiser based in Washington, DC. She has organized over 200 exhibitions of contemporary art both regionally and nationally and has written numerous catalogs and exhibition brochures. In 2004, after serving as Exhibitions Director at McLean Project for the Arts for 10 years, she opened an acclaimed curatorial space called Curator’s Office in Washington, DC. It served both as a curatorial office for offsite exhibitions and projects and a small commercial gallery. She has managed a large corporate and several private collections.
After leaving a successful corporate career to start a family, Lisa Brown and her husband relocated from northern California to Washington DC, hoping to immerse their children in the rich cultural and intellectual diversity of the nation’s capital. In 2014, Brown realized a longtime dream of opening an art gallery, the P Street Gallerie. In a space that previously housed an art gallery for more than 30 years, she infused the historic location with new energy by introducing a diverse mix of emerging local and national artists to DC art enthusiasts and novices alike.
