JUROR: DONNA SEAGER – SEAGER GRAY GALLERY, MILL VALLEY, CA

Donna Seager was born in New Orleans and received her education in English and Art History at the University of Texas in Austin. She is in her 33nd year in the art business, having started in New Orleans in 1978. She went on to direct Marlborough Gallery on Newbury Street in Boston and moved to the Bay Area in 1989. She worked with Robert Green of Robert Green Fine Arts for ten years. Throughout her career, she has written articles about artists and exhibitions for various publications and juried many shows in Northern California. In November of 2005, she opened her own gallery in San Rafael, winning Best of Marin in 2008, 2009 and 2010. She is a member of the San Francisco Art Dealers Association. She has distinguished herself in part for her belief in artist books as well as her keen eye and energetic support for the art and artists of the Bay Area. She believes strongly in the role of art in refining the sensibilities of the community and that involvement in the arts greatly enhances the quality of life for all. http://www.seagergray.com
