Lucky Gallery Welcomes Catherine Weaver, Assistant Gallery Director

Catherine Weaver

Lucky Gallery welcomes Catherine Weaver who is a refugee from the corporate zone, an ex-everything designer, having a put her hand to the creation of greeting cards, T-shirts, packaging, look books, websites, and handbags.

Raised in a trailer near a barn on a dirt road outside of Cooperstown, NY., Catherine spent her formative years (from 18 to 40!) chasing the money.

She has finally decided to stop chasing the money, and is now free to start following her heart. We’ll see where it leads.

Lucky for us it led her to Lucky Gallery, just in time to organize “Made in Red Hook” exhibition possibly the largest endeavor we have taken on so far!

Lucky Gallery Welcomes Alexander Ellis – Event Photographer

Alexander Ellis

Alexander is a recent graduate of the George Washington University, where he was the photo editor of the independent college newspaper, the Hatchet. Here he developed his love and passion for photography and journalism. His favorite photographer is Henri Cartier-Bresson, the father of modern photojournalism.

When he is not shooting for Lucky Gallery, you can find him freelancing in the tri-state area and taking his dog on long walks.

Smile for Alexander at the next Lucky Gallery event (he most likely will be the guy with the biggest camera in the room)!
