Allison Stockman is Marketing Director 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. When she's not managing the gallery website or posting on our Instagram account, you'll probably find her playing music. Or buying music. Or listening to music. She enjoys reading the New Yorker 7 minutes at a time before falling asleep. She derives enormous pleasure from eating hamburgers and watching episodes of Baskets. Prior to joining Catharine Clark Gallery, Allison worked as a free-lance grant writer for artists and non-profit organizations.
Anton Stuebner is Associate Director of Sales at Catharine Clark Gallery. He is also a Staff Writer at San Francisco-based online periodical Art Practical whose columns and reviews examine the intersections of queer representation, critical race, and visual cultures around bodies. He has presented research through Queer Conversation on Culture and the Arts (QCCA), the Midwest Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, and the Visual and Critical Studies Graduate Symposium at California College of the Arts. In 2016, Anton was selected for the Emerging Scholars Program through QCCA, an ongoing collaboration between the Queer Cultural Center, California College of the Arts, and the University of California, Berkeley’s College of Environment Design. He was also awarded a 2015-2016 Project Index Fellowship through the Kadist Art Foundation. He holds a Master of Arts in Visual and Critical Studies from California College of the Arts and a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of California, Berkeley.
Jennie is the Registrar at Catharine Clark Gallery and a recent graduate of UC Berkeley, where she studied art history with an emphasis in modern and contemporary art and photography. She wrote her undergraduate honors thesis on narratives of desire and representations of gender in the self-portrait photographs of Nagashima Yurie, the leader of the Girl Photography movement in 1990s Japan. Jennie grew up in Fort Worth, Texas, where she learned to love art through frequent trips to The Modern and Kimbell Art Museum. Jennie likes re-watching the film Amelie after an especially long day, going out for noodles with her boyfriend when it’s cold outside (or anytime, really), and reading her Kindle on the train. When she’s not at the gallery, you can find Jennie in Berkeley, wandering around Moe’s Books or meeting for tea at Asha Tea House on University Ave.
Chiara Sbolci is the gallery Operations Manager, an overarching title that keeps her busy during the workday. Born and raised in the Bay Area, she is currently living in Oakland. A recent graduate from California College of the Arts where she received a BFA in Illustration, Chiara now freelances in design, but more often can be found painting or hand-building porcelain vessels. Aside from endeavors relating to visual art, she enjoys rummaging through flea markets and finding fruit trees.
