Nicole Berry has been actively involved in the international art world for over a decade. She is an art historian, art writer, curator and former art adviser. First gaining experience in the Contemporary Department at Sotheby’s in London, she subsequently worked in New York City at a number of secondary market galleries. In addition to her gallery work, Berry created her own company, Accessible Art, in 2006. Incorporating advising and organized tours through the often intimidating gallery and museum scene, the main focus of Accessible Art was a monthly newsletter she wrote that reviewed exhibitions and provided information about global art events. She has also written articles for BBC Travel. Berry has curated numerous exhibitions as a freelancer as well as in her gallery positions. She has been a member of panels at various art fairs and has given lectures throughout New York on topics ranging from how to begin a collection to navigating fine art museums.
Originally from San Francisco, Berry attended Colgate University where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. She obtained a Master’s in Education at Lesley College and a Master’s in Art History from the University of California at Davis. Her Master’s thesis on the art dealers Peggy Guggenheim and Betty Parsons is in the library of both the Peggy Guggenheim Museum as well as the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center. She has traveled extensively, continuing to broaden her international art network and is a member of many art organizations including NADA (New Art Dealer’s Alliance); POWArts (Professional Organization of Women in the Arts); and is the Chair of ArtTable’s Chicago Chapter (a Leadership Organization for Professional Women in the Visual Arts). She is also on the Arts Club of Chicago’s Reception Committee, the Visual Art Committee at the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE), and is an advisor and selection committee member for Chicago Artists Month.
