About me

How I Got Here

My education and love for antiques and art started in childhood. It continued through studying Art History at Berkshire Community College, then by studying fine art with Nellie Fink of Egremont, Massachusetts.

I moved to Taylor, Mississippi (April 2007), which is known as a creative and artistic community seven miles south of Oxford by both accident and luck. My love for art and antiques led to managerial positions at Tin Pan Alley Arts and Antiques in Taylor, as well as Sugar Magnolia Antique Center in Oxford.

When I returned to the Berkshires in 2013, I began working for Clemens Kalischer at Image Photo Gallery, on main street in Stockbridge MA, as his gallery assistant. I preformed curatorial work, sales and copyright protection, and cataloguing the extensive photograph collection, now managed by the Estate of Clemens Kalischer, after Clemens’ death in 2018.

About Kate Coulehan

How I can Help

It goes without saying that I will be a conscientious and dependable asset to your project, but it’s my intense fascination for the objects themselves that will bring an x-factor to your team. Consider for a moment how you will use your new catalog in the future.

Museums and institutions are broadening their audiences with the digitalization of their collections. There are a variety of digitalization management programs available which help preserve the history of artifacts and create the possibility for continued study for future generations.

An emotional attachment to your project and an attention to detail is how I can help you. Reach out to me if you would like to discuss developing a working relationship. It will be an honor to hear your story.

Past Experience

Since 1997, I have worked with antiques starting with antique clothing at Greystone Gardens in Pittsfield Massachusetts. My fascination with history and what has been left behind has led me to study the arts in various genres in addition to photography and jewelry, as well as paintings and furniture.

My work Assisting Other Artists

It has been my great pleasure to assist other artists with their collections and ephemera such as the photographer and music manager Dick Waterman of Oxford, Mississippi, and jewelry/sculpture artist Daniel Jocz of Berkshire County, Massachusetts.
