Wednesday, September 18th, 2019

Robinson Holloway is Founder of the non-profit Village West Gallery and Executive Director of Art Fair 14C. She discovered her passion for the art world by curating solo shows at 350 Bleeker Street, located in the lobby of her fashionable West Village apartment. Robinson is a member of ArtTable, POWarts, and the International Womens’ Forum, and she sits on the Board of Directors of the Association of Women Art Dealers (AWAD).

Since founding her gallery, Robinson has gone on to hold the position as Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Jersey City Arts Council (JCAC). Dedicated to supporting smaller galleries and artists lacking representation, Robinson joined Art Fair 14C in 2018 as Executive Director and aims to ensure accessibility to the world of fine art. www.artfair14c.com

Established in 2014, Village West Gallery operates on a philanthropic model and prides itself in its ‘no-commission’ approach, ensuring that all sales proceeds go to the exhibiting artists. Housed in a former grocery wholesale warehouse, the business functions as a community space to unite artists and art lovers throughout Jersey City. www.villagewestgallery.com

The gallery’s program features themed group shows throughout the year.
