I'm Kelsey.


By day: Contemporary Art at Sotheby's.

By night: cultural explorer in NYC.

ARTTCETERA is a visual record of my art-fueled adventures in the city. Under the ART tab, you can check out all the art I see every day – from the record-setting masterpieces at Sotheby’s, to the spectacular installations in Chelsea galleries, to the awesome street art of the Lower East Side. Beyond the Art in my life, you’ll find the ETC: the coffee shops, fashionistas, speakeasies, ice cream cones, Brooklyn concerts, pop-up stores, and every other wonderful piece of NYC that I encounter on this NYC artventure.

I'm excited and curious about any and all kinds of art: street performances, biodegradable sculptures, land installations, Brutalist architecture, modern furniture design, blown glass, video art -- you name it, I'm into it. Beyond a rampant curiosity for all things art, I've focused my studies on the Abstract Expressionist and Minimalist movements of the 1940's, 50's, and 60's. Helen Frankenthaler, Donald Judd, Mark Rothko, Joan Mitchell, Franz Kline, Dan Flavin, and Cy Twombly are among my favorite artists.

After spending a year in the Sotheby's Training Program, I joined the Contemporary Evening sale team as an associate cataloguer. Before joining Sotheby’s, I had the pleasure of working at Christie’s, Turner Carroll Gallery, the Williams College Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Lannan Foundation, and in the archives of Thomas Krens (the former director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum). Additionally, I’ve managed numerous social media accounts, including those for the popular student-run NESCAC blog, In the Cac. I graduated in May of 2015 from Williams College with a double major in English and Art History.
