Gallery Manager Brian Gillham gives a glimpse into the work he does behind the scenes in order to produce successful exhibitions, and also discusses the importance of maintaining relationships in the art community.
“This is a very insular community; even though there are a lot of people who participate, there are few major role players in the game. It doesn’t do you any good to burn any bridges.”

By embracing a wide range of genres and artists, Zolla/Lieberman Gallery is able to offer a variety of work and maintains professional associations with the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) and the Chicago Art Dealers Association (CADA).
