Amanda Lomax was raised in North Carolina and received a BFA in Fine Art from UNC – Chapel Hill. She traveled to the North East to begin an internship at UFORGE Gallery and has remained an integral part of our success. A planner of special events and culinary creations, Amanda’s shining talents can be seen during our monthly gallery receptions.
Hailing from northern New Jersey but now happily ensconced in Somerville, Alex Kittle received her BA from Tufts University and is in the process of completing her Master’s in Art History at Boston University. She loves almost all art made after 1872 (especially the weird stuff) and in the future hopes to share her passions through museum or gallery exhibition planning and curating. She will also talk your head off about movies, so broach that subject at your own peril.
