Best Re-employed Gallery Director - 2009
In the fall of 2007, investor Andrew Kalmar opened the elegant Gallery T at the corner of West Ninth Avenue and Santa Fe Drive and hired Ron Judish to run it. An art-world veteran, Judish was an early member of the Spark Gallery co-op and later ran two of his own galleries. When the second of those galleries closed some years ago, Judish thought his days in the art world had ended — at least until he met the young and brash Kalmar. Under Judish's guidance, T has shown a mix of local and international art stars. And thanks to Kalmar, we've got Judish's accomplished eye back on the local exhibition scene.
