Walker Contemporary works in unique and innovative ways.
With 19 years of experience as a contemporary art dealer, Stephanie Walker, owner, Walker Contemporary, travels regularly on buying trips for her clients. She also collaborates with her artists to develop unique site specific and site sensitive work for private & corporate collectors and works with gallery owners as well as owners of interesting spaces to curate exhibitions. Walker travels the country to give each project, artist, collector, client and artwork the unique attention they need.
Born and raised in Vermont, Walker began her career at a gallery specializing in 19th & 20th century American impressionist work and then became the Director of a contemporary art gallery on Newbury Street in Boston, where she remained for almost ten years.
Before opening her own gallery in Boston in 2008, Walker spent a year living in Los Angeles; traveling all over the country, especially up and down the West coast to fairs, galleries and artists’ studios. It was a pivotal opportunity that solidified and deepened her passion for working with contemporary art and artists. After three years in Boston, Walker moved operations to her home state of Vermont and opened Walker Contemporary in Waitsfield.
Walker is deeply committed to the advancement of outstanding contemporary art through the promotion of dedicated, innovative and passionate, emerging and mid-career artists who push the limits of both material and process in order to challenge and inspire the way we see.
