Anthony has worked as a studio artist, professor, curator and gallery director. Currently, he's working on the plans for our new gallery building and studio; construction should start soon. Our new loacation will be about twelve miles to the south of our current location in the thriving Village of Baroda, Michigan. In a way it will be a family homecoming, the Schaller side of Anthony's family settled in Baroda in the 1940s and have been there ever since.
Nikki GauthierAssistant Directornikki@schallergallery.com
Nikki’s arrival in the art world came later than many others. It all started when her dad gifted her with painting supplies and canvases one Christmas and encouraged her to complete a Bob Ross tutorial of all things. She’s still painting (although not like Bob Ross). Nikki also makes music in her band Dirty Sally. Her superpowers include organization and grammar. She’s not a potter (yet…) but we still like her! We’re pretty sure you will too.
