Carrie Able Gallery welcomes Kayla Coleman as it’s newest Collector Relations Liaison. She is an art historian, educator, and writer based in New York City and specializes in Modern and Contemporary art by black artists in the United States and the Caribbean. Kayla has been fortunate enough to have her research create amazing opportunities including a archival fellowship at the Studio Museum in Harlem in which she wrote a grant that landed the museum over half a million dollars toward their archive, a graduate fellowship studying modern and contemporary African American artists from the southern United States, and numerous guest lectures and conference panels. Kayla received an Associates of Science degree in Gallery & Museum Studies and Photography from Queensborough Community College, a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Art History from Brooklyn College and is currently writing her thesis for a Master of Arts degree in Art History from the City College of New York. When she isn’t working with the Carrie Able Gallery she is managing WhiteBox, a nonprofit art space located on the Lower East Side that works with underrepresented international artists.
