William Campbell Gallery Announces: New Director Anne Kelly Lewis
William Campbell Gallery is delighted to announce its new Director Anne Kelly Lewis. Anne brings over 11 years of gallery and fine art auction experience, previously serving as both Gallery and Auction Director at David Dike Fine Art in Dallas for over a decade, and has had her own appraisal practice, Fine Art Appraisal, L.L.C. since 2012.
Anne, a Fort Worth native, says: “I am thrilled to have this opportunity to connect to the art community here, across the state, and beyond. William Campbell Gallery is immensely respected, and I am honored to lead it into its next chapter. This month we launched the exhibition Compendium Revealed at both the Byers Avenue and Foch Street locations celebrating the stable of artists. The exhibition will be immediately followed by the new artist debut of Lee Albert Hill during FWADA’s Spring Gallery Night; along with a solo exhibition of work by Lloyd Martin; and then off to the internationally recognized Dallas Art Fair in April. It will be a busy season and the perfect time to dive in.”
With this new directorship, the vision of the gallery is to not only offer the newest works by current artists but also expand that roster to provide additional and pioneering artists. Anne will collaborate closely with institutions, artists, and collectors to help continue to grow the gallery as a cornerstone of a vibrant art community.
“Anne brings a breath of fresh air and expertise that is undeniable. Her passion and knowledge are unparalleled, and we are confident Anne will continue to propel the gallery forward,” shares Misty Locke, Partner at William Campbell Gallery. She adds, “She’s already inventing new ways to celebrate art and cultivate opportunities for our artists and collectors while honoring the values and ambition Bill and Pam Campbell created when they founded this gallery.”
Throughout her career, Anne has achieved several accolades and awards, serving on several boards in the industry. She is an Accredited Member Appraiser of the International Society of Appraisers, where she is co-chair of the upcoming annual ISA conference in March of 2023. Anne graduated from Fort Worth Country Day and went on to receive her B.A. in Arts Management from the College of Charleston, SC.
