We believe that effective arts leadership starts with a sincere engagement with the community.

  • On Education

    At the core of SLP is a dedication to education as a vital component & foundation of all that we do. This process is ongoing and never ending.

    From 2007-2013, Sheri was been Adjunct Faculty in the Art Market Program of the School of Graduate Studies at SUNY-FIT. Her course, taught annually in the Fall semesters, was based on her text book about gallery maintenance & infrastructure. In 2009, she began an independent research project on the history of the American art market & its culture from 1800 to the present. Elements of this research have been presented to the University of Moscow, the Peabody-Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts, Columbia University, and Yale Graduate School of Art. The research is ongoing.

    Since her time at FIT ended, Sheri has continued to promote education and transparency via participation in seminars and panel discussions. These have included presentations at Christies Education Institute and several other independently-organized events.

  • On Community Service

    In 2002, Sheri L. Pasquarella conceived and co-founded the New Art Dealers Alliance, a 501c6 organization.

    Sheri L. Pasquarella is the President Emerita of NADA. She is also the recipient of the 2005 ‘Future Visionaries Award’ from ArtTable, the national professional association of women in the arts.
