Insight Series Q&A Forum Speaker:
Steven Sergiovanni was the Director of Mixed Greens Gallery until its close in 2015. Established in 1999 as an online-only curated marketplace, which then evolved at the request of its many artists into a brick and mortar gallery, Mixed Greens operated on a belief that openness both to artists and to collectors yields a better and closer relationship with artwork. It was also been one of the few Chelsea galleries to maintain an open call for submissions. Sergiovanni's experience as a director, gallerist, and dealer hinges on a methodology of continued transparency.
