Meet the Members

ArtTable prides itself on being an organization of dynamic women doing interesting things.
This series is designed for members to get to know one another, and to foster connection and conversation.


Sharon Vatsky | New York Chapter ArtTable Member since 1997
Director of Education, school and family programs at the Guggenheim since 2011. Her latest book is
 Museum Gallery Activities: A Handbook.

Sharon dates her interest in the visual arts to a third grade memory of seeing her painting hung on a classroom wall. "There was a sense early on that 'this was it,'" Sharon recalls. She grew up in New York in a family of educators and musicians, which helps to explain her dedication to ensuring access to the arts for children. In our time together we talked about Sharon's career path, the advice she'd give young aspiring professionals and what ArtTable means to her.
