Corkin Gallery is pleased to announce that Sara Knelman is the new gallery Director. Knelman has over ten years of international experience in arts management, curatorial practice and post-graduate teaching in the fields of art history, museology and the history of photography. She begins her new role effective immediately.

"I'm delighted to welcome Sara back to the Corkin Gallery team. She is an ideal director and natural leader," said Jane Corkin, the Gallery’s owner and CEO.

Knelman developed and led a program of international exhibitions and projects as the curator of contemporary art at the Art Gallery of Hamilton from 2005-09, and led an active program of talks and events as the talks programmer at The Photographers’ Gallery, London in 2012-13. She has taught at numerous institutions, including the Courtauld, London and Ryerson University's School of Image Arts, Toronto. Knelman has written about contemporary art and photography for publications including Aperture, Frieze, Prefix Photo, Canadian Art, and Source: The Photographic Review.


Kopeikin Gallery will be hiring a new "second in command". This is someone whose experience will either mean that they start as the director, or that they will be working toward that goal. This includes curating exhibitions.

Minimum two years of gallery experience necessary, not necessarily in photography. Must be willing to put themselves out into the community to meet artists, collectors and others interested in what the gallery does. The desire to sell or learn to sell is a definite plus. Must be a self-starter and able to work alone. Pay is commensurate with experience. Please send email directly to: paul@kopeikingallery.com.


Denny Gallery has assumed the name Denny Dimin Gallery.

Elizabeth Denny founded the contemporary art gallery in 2013 at 261 Broome Street on the Lower East Side of New York City. Robert Dimin joined as director and partner in 2015.

Dimin, who received his MFA from the University of Pennsylvania in 2011, has focused on developing the careers of represented artists, relationships with collectors, curators and peers, and social media strategy. He will continue in this role as a named partner of the gallery.
