Meet Arlene Angard
We recently connected with Arlene Angard and have shared our conversation below.
Alright, Arlene thanks for taking the time to share your stories and insights with us today. To kick things off, we’d love to hear about things you or your brand do that diverge from the industry standard.
I manage an interior design business and I am also a gallery owner, and art consultant. This combination is what differentiates me from my industry peers. My gallery and studio offer a captivating haven for art enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike that effortlessly combine artistic elegance with a contemporary flair. The gallery showcases an ever-changing curation of artwork from emerging talents and renowned artists. Throughout the year, I curate several art gallery events, each reflecting the essence of the artist and season. I typically try to incorporate the artists and artwork that I represent in my gallery within all of my Interior Design Projects.
Awesome – so before we get into the rest of our questions, can you briefly introduce yourself to our readers.
