Miller Gallery’s founder and Director, Sarah Miller Gelber, provides expert insight to first-time and experienced collectors alike. Raised by art advocates - an architect and an art educator - her passion for all forms of art surfaced at a young age. Sarah grew up in Maryland where she was in arms reach of some of the country’s best international art museums. Sarah received a BA in Arts Management from the College of Charleston with accelerated contemporary art studies at Autonomous University of Barcelona. Beginning in 2012, she spent five years as art director for Mitchell Hill, a gallery and interior design company. In 2016 Sarah was voted President of the Charleston Gallery Association. She founded Miller Gallery in 2017 and led the Charleston Gallery Association as President through 2018. Sarah’s expertise is well-rounded in fine art and design. Her eye for intermingling classical artworks with contemporary counterparts is fresh and satisfying — and exactly the spark Charleston needed to invigorate a market that is now ready to embrace more contemporary art galleries. Having lived in Charleston for over a decade, Sarah has an awareness of the constant ebb and flow of market trends. This allows her to be an asset to her clients with varying art budgets and personal aesthetics. Sarah works with both private collectors and corporate clients, assisting creative teams in refining and achieving a unified artistic vision. She excels in facilitating large acquisitions for public and private spaces. She has curated over 60 exhibitions and is also a contributing writer to The Art Mag and various regional publications.
Our Assistant Director, Kathleen Saunders, came to Miller Gallery in 2018 as a professional artist ready to change course. An extrovert at heart, Kathleen found more joy in working with other artists than she did in her own studio. After a stint in Los Angeles, she returned to her homestead in the South, fueled with a passion for mobilizing Southern contemporary artists. Kathleen earned her BA in Studio Art from College of Charleston and her MFA in Studio Art at Florida State University. In 2016, she was granted an artist residency in the desert mountains of California, which launched her into two solo exhibitions in New Orleans and Tallahassee before she chose to put her artist career on the back burner. Kathleen’s fine art background gives her an eye for curation as well as an ability to give clients an artist’s perspective on the creation of a piece. But above all, she has an enthusiastic commitment to accessibility in fine art and has dedicated much of herself to fueling Miller Gallery’s Art for All mission.
Miller Gallery’s Sales + Branding Manager, Rachael Nerney, brings a variety of talent and experience to our team. Rachael earned her BFA in Illustration at the Savannah College of Art & Design in 2013. From there she worked as an assistant to a professional artist as well as a store artist for Whole Foods, combining her passions for the culinary and visual arts. She joined the Miller Gallery team in 2017 shortly after we opened our doors. Since then Rachael has provided the gallery with an invaluable skillset including illustration, design, sales, branding, marketing, and an artist’s refined taste. Originally from the Northeast, Rachael brings a knowledge of the New England art market. When she’s not in the gallery, Rachael enjoys painting from her home-studio on James Island. Rachael’s art, inspired by culinary delights, is vibrant and energetic. Find it on the Miller Gallery walls and on our website!
