An Artistic Point of View
“Been there, done that” often carries a negative connotation, but in the case of Andrea Keogh, the proprietor and driving force behind the gallery bearing her name on Litchfield’s historic Green, “been there, done that” comes in recognition of a notable career devoted to art.
In any field one has to pay his or her dues, slog through tedium and hardship to gain experience. Keogh has done that in spades. Starting with CitiBank Art Advisory Services for a basic understanding of the financing of art acquisitions and collections, she moved to the mundane but critical fields of management/sales/public relations with Chris Beetles [London] and Altman/Burke [New York], and then for years she was owner/principal/dealer with Scully Keogh Fine Art and Keogh & Riehlman in New York, dealing with collectors and instrumental in acquiring works for the Salvador Dali Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Harvard Art Museum.
