Funny story about how Katie Ukrop became a part of the Met. Last night, I was flipping through one of my favorite magazines, Domino, and came across one of the most beautifully designed houses ever, by a gallery owner named Katie Ukrop. I e-mailed Katie this morning, telling her how much I loved her house and asked if she would be a part of the Met. Not long after both her and Diana, the Assistant Mgr, joined.
What I love the most, is not only Katie's eye for design, it's the fact that she's a mother of two girls (Emma, 11, and Flora, 5) as well as a gallery owner. She launched Quirk in Sept of 2005 with her partner Kathy Emerson. Located in Richmond, Virginia, Quirk features exhibitions of innovative work by both established and emerging American and international artists. Part art gallery part shop, Quirk encourages artists to come and discuss their work. Love that!
Glad you and Diana could join the Met! Welcome!
