"I believe that everyone has an artwork that speaks to them, and eventually that work becomes an old friend. More than anything, I enjoy helping others find their appreciation for great art and watching that love evolve into a desire to engage in lifelong art education and supporting the arts through collecting."
Prior to starting Gallery 6/67, Erica Wall amassed extensive academic training and professional experience in the arts. Erica’s academic credentials include a Bachelor’s degree from UCLA and a Master’s degree in Museum Education from California State University, Los Angeles. Professionally, Erica has worked at both large and small museums, most notably the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, as Director of School and Community Programs, and The Crocker Museum in Sacramento as Director of Education. Prior to those leadership positions, she worked on the front-line of art education at The Getty Center in Los Angeles, and the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) and was a Smithsonian Fellow.
Gallery 6/67 is committed to elevating all manner of underrepresented artists, especially those in the emerging art community. We offer works showcasing excellence in innovation of process across all mediums, often highlighting expressions of race and identity colliding and blending to form the human experience.
Erica's commitment to exhibiting and selling the highest caliber art, created by artists who have been historically underrepresented, is the outcome of her extensive professional experience at art institutions across the country and realizing three unfortunate realities in the art world:
The way art is historically exhibited is intimidating and inaccessible. Artists who do not represent the historical Canon are consistently overlooked. The education available to fully engage all individuals and encourage art collecting is severely lacking. Gallery 6/67 is both a call to address these issues and attempt to empower the public, as well as challenge the art market at large, to face these inequities. Erica believes there is a place for everyone in the art world.
