Collection Manager & Registrar at Independent professional
(347) 803-0602 (Mobile)
Kate DePetris' focus is on applying museum standards to the bespoke management of private, corporate, and institutional fine art collections, with an interational network of resources at her disposal (crating, transportation, installation, storage, etc). Born and raised in Dallas, she studied studio art at Dallas’ Arts Magnet high school, Booker T. Washington, and obtained her bachelor's degree in Art History from the University of North Texas in 2011. Kate began her career in fine arts administration and logistics at Artemis, where she grew an extensive client base and took on exceedingly complex projects. After two years, Kate moved to New York to work as International Project Manager for Crozier Fine Arts. From there, she became Registrar for Lehmann Maupin, facilitating all loans and consignments on behalf of a dynamic roster of more than forty international artists. She then worked with vast private and corporate New York-based collections, acting as sole steward of more than 7,500 objects across multiple properties. With nine years’ experience in the field, Kate has developed a keen eye for minimalism, nostalgia, and honest, elevated design.
