This fall the amazing opportunity of interning at Legacy Art in Nyack, NY came up. After meeting Mark and Liz and seeing the beautiful space I was so excited to begin. Working with Liz was truly such a great experience and so much fun. It was such a cool opportunity to see the beginning stages of a gallery blossom into a community of bright and talented community of artists. As an artist myself, being around their vibrant art was truly a joy.
While interning at Legacy Art a very exciting opportunity came up for me to showcase my art in a gallery show at The Untitled Space in Tribeca.

I owe a lot of my success to Liz as she is and was so supportive of me. Now that I've graduated high school and have gone to college in Manhattan, I've unfortunately had to leave Legacy Art. Interning at the gallery gave me the experience and confidence to now prospectively intern for galleries in New York City and to be comfortable in that environment.
I am going to miss Legacy Art very much and am so thankful to Mark and Liz for everything they've done for me. I look forward to seeing where they go with the gallery in the future! :-)
