About Emilee Enders
Over the past twelve years, Emilee Enders has held a range of positions in the art world. She has worked at Bedford Gallery since 2018, where she has curated a number of exhibitions, such as Reclaimed: The Art of Recology (2021), Cultural Currency: Contemporary Art from the Riemer Collection (2022) and Erin Fong | The Sensation of Color (2023). Before her time at Bedford, she worked at several other galleries including Franklin Bowles Gallery and Patricia Sweetow Gallery, both in San Francisco, CA. From 2016-2018, Enders ran an independent artist and creative professional advisory company where she helped individual artists advance their careers through establishing an online and social media presence. Her exposure to these many facets of the art world has greatly informed her curatorial interests placing a heavy emphasis on artists, exhibitions, and programs that explore genres and disciplines often overlooked in contemporary exhibition spaces. She is drawn to work that blurs the line between craft and fine art and looks for themes that break down barriers to art appreciation. Enders studied at the University of Colorado at Boulder where she earned a BS in English and art history.
