Katharine James is the Associate at Catharine Clark Gallery. Born in northern California, Katharine has lived in London, Florence, and New York in recent years (traveling to France, the Netherlands, Belgium, India, and South Africa) and simultaneously earning a Bachelor of Arts in Art History and a Master of Arts in Art Business. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from the Renée Crown University Honors Program at Syracuse University in New York and earned a Distinction for her Master’s degree and dissertation from Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London. While at Sotheby’s, Katharine’s focus was on the endorsement influences that impact an artist’s market value, specifically analyzing the stimulating influence of art museum blockbuster retrospectives. Prior to joining Catharine Clark Gallery, Katharine worked in the Special Events department at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History and the Prints and Photographs department at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. She spends her free time cooking, running, and enjoying the occasional glass of California Turley wine after work.
Allison Stockman handles writing and marketing for Catharine Clark Gallery. She lived and worked all over the United States and in Great Britain, South Africa and India before settling in the Bay Area in 2012. Neither her undergraduate degree in Zoology from Brigham Young University, nor her graduate degree from Yale University in International Public Health have anything to do with her current career or personal pursuits. But they do make her a great person to sit next to at a boring dinner party. Prior to joining Catharine Clark Gallery, Allison worked as a free-lance grant writer for artists and non-profit organizations. She spends her free time playing music, growing vegetables, and raising chickens and children in Oakland, California.
