Yes! There is really is nothing quite like walking into a space filled with original art created by artists you love.

ART FOR GALLERIES: I’ve curated several shows over the past few years from Los Angeles to Washington DC. Curating an exhibition is a very creative process beginning with deciding on the narrative, choosing the artists/works, {a whole bunch of spread sheets and emails in the middle bit}, and finally bringing all of it together into one harmonious, art-filled moment. Magic.

ART FOR HOMES / HOTELS / SPACES: I find curating outside of the gallery is just as satisfying… if not more so. Playing matchmaker between a buyer and an artist is one of the most exciting things I get to do. Finding gorgeous work for collectors / making a sale for a talented artist… everyone’s happy. Yes, that is fun!

    Here is my artist bio and statement
    If your interested in viewing my current work my instagram page is natalyalaskis.

    Natalya Laskis was born in Miami Florida, 1980. She has apprenticed with Jeff Koons 2015-2016 and Hernan Bas 2006-2010. She holds a BFA Fine Arts from Maryland Institute College of Art Baltimore. Solo exhibitions include; What is Love at Galleria Glance, Turin, Italy in 2012, Shortness of Breath at Locust Projects, Miami, FL in 2012. and American Odyssey at The Frederic Snitzer Gallery, Miami, FL in 2009.
Selected group exhibitions include; The Moment,The Backdrop,The Persona at The Girl’s Club Foundation, Fort Lauderdale, FL in 2014, Nada Art Fair during Basel, Miami Beach, FL in 2013-2014, The Fred Snitzer Gallery at The Armory, New York, NY in 2011, The Boca Raton Museum of Art, Boca Raton, FL in 2009, and The David Castillo Gallery, Miami, FL in 2008.

    My paintings are ripe with effervescent moments captured with paint on canvas. From awkward first dates to a surprise encounter. I show you what your feelings look like – when you are surprised by a couple, or moments when you realize your emotionally unavailable, or quietly fishing. I create common social vignettes with unexpected situations.

    It’s an inspiration, in a very rural existence,
    Any advice on pushing forward through surrounding sludge to create my own brand identity and creative collections..?

    I have lots of contacts but not a strong reliable platform to post from

    I love what you’re doing, and have just started reading ‘Your inner critic is a Jerk’. It’s a very witty and so intuitive. I can really relate to what you are writing about. Thanks for sharing your journey and tips As an artist trying to find her way again it’s an invaluable read!✨

    Thanks for looking! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

    Curious if you have featured the artist Kim Keeves? “I wish I had thought of that.”

  10. the jealous curator /// 12.15.2016 /// 9:43pm

    hey so i dont know if this is normal to do, but its late and its a new year to take a risk and help a friend, i was wondering if you could check out ruth waddell’s art, she is a painter trying to make a living and her husband ryan makes jewelry out of things from nature, but also metal working, if you want to look into it (ruth’s stuff) (mostly ryans stuff)

    Hi. Your work as a curator is absolutely refreshing. Art ignites the sense of wonder and connects the viewer to the essence of humanity- the desire to create. You contribute greatly to this experience.
