Art Dealers Association of America Names New President


NEW YORK -- In September, the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) appointed Lucy Mitchell-Innes, co-owner of Mitchell-Innes & Nash, as president.

Mitchell-Innes will succeed Roland Augustine, co-owner of Luhring Augustine, who has served as ADAA's president since 2006.

"Lucy's many years of experience in the field of art dealing, her high standards of professional practice and her strong commitment to the mission of the ADAA make her the ideal leader for our association," Augustine says.

ADAA's Executive Director Linda Blumberg adds, "Lucy is well known in the arts community for the strength of her gallery's program and her expertise in private sales. Her experience and keen understanding of the art world will make her an engaged and creative president."

Mitchell-Innes worked at Sotheby's from 1981 to 1994, where she served as head of the Contemporary Art Department in Europe, then in New York as worldwide director of the Contemporary Art, Latin American Art and Contemporary and Modern Print departments. In 1994, she founded her own business as a private dealer and art adviser, and two years later opened a gallery on the Upper East Side in New York specializing in the secondary market for modern and contemporary masters and artists' estates. In 2005, the gallery opened a second space in Chelsea. Mitchell-Innes & Nash has mounted major exhibitions of both historical and contemporary work in both spaces, and the gallery's roster of artists and estates includes some of the most influential artists of the 20th century and today.
