The inaugural edition of PHOTOFAIRS New York will take place September 8-10, 2023, with a VIP Preview Day on September 7, 2023.

National Programs & Chapters Manager | September 2020 - January 2023
After about 5 months of pandemic-forced furlough, Haley joined the team at ArtTable, the leading professional organization for advancing the leadership of women in the visual arts.
As the National Programs & Chapters Manager, Haley is responsible for ensuring that all ArtTable programs align with the organization's mission and brand, as well as coordinating the details and logistics for all programs. Notably, Haley has coordinated over 100 virtual and in-person programs as of the start of 2022, which includes research into potential program topics around relevant art-world news and events, research into and outreach to potential speakers for the proposed topic, schedule coordination, and ultimately execution of the final program.
In addition to the programming responsibilities in this role, Haley manages all of ArtTable's chapter volunteers around the country. ArtTable currently has 10 local chapters based in Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Florida, Houston, Metro Atlanta, New York, Northern California, Northwest, Philadelphia, Southern California, and Washington, DC. Haley was instrumental in the formation of the Metro Atlanta and Dallas-Fort Worth chapters between 2021-2022. Some chapter management responsibilities include regularly liaising with approximately 30 volunteers around the country to coordinate local programming and membership outreach, leading of monthly volunteer meetings to address pertinent topics and issues, and updating and tracking volunteer documents and manuals.
Haley also manages ArtTable's social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn) and coordinates all e-mail communications. Since starting at ArtTable, Haley has contributed to a 200% increase in followers and subscribers across all platforms. She works closely with ArtTable's Executive Director to plan the organization's communications schedule, as well as identify and address opportunities for improvement within the organization's internal structure.
Upstate Art Weekend Project Manager | June 2020 - present (seasonal)
Starting in the summer of 2020, Haley assisted the team at STONELEAF RETREAT in Kingston, NY to organize the inaugural Upstate Art Weekend (UPAW), a weekend event promoting creative spaces in the Hudson Valley by providing a curated road map for those wanting to explore and enjoy art in the region. Her tasks included designing and implementing a social media plan for the event, writing Instagram copy for each participating organization, creating Instagram stories, and efficiently collating all participant information for the website. Haley also traveled to many of the participating 20 organizations, from Poughkeepsie to Hudson, meeting with the participants and documenting their exhibitions and events. The inaugural UPAW was a huge success, with over 350 people visiting various organizations over the two days.
Building upon that success, UPAW returned for the 2nd year in 2021. Haley was brought on in April to help coordinate participant applications and maximize efficiency in the application submission process, both for applicants and on the back end. During the weekend, Haley worked to coordinate operations from UPAW's home base at STONELEAF RETREAT in Kingston, NY, providing administrative support remotely as needed and documenting the event on Instagram.
In 2023, UPAW will take place from July 21-24, encompassing arts organizations (Galleries/Exhibition Spaces, Non-Profits, and Temporary Projects) throughout eight counties, continuing the mission of promoting and celebrating creative spaces throughout the Hudson Valley and Catskills.
INTERNATIONAL FINE ART PRINT DEALERS ASSOCIATION (IFPDA)
Communications & Programs Coordinator | May - December, 2019
Member Relations & Events Manager | January - April, 2020
Haley joined the team at IFPDA in May of 2019 as the Communications & Programs Coordinator. In this role, she created and managed the organization's overall communications calendar, which included communications surrounding the IFPDA Fine Art Print Fair, the IFPDA Foundation, and general membership communications with IFPDA members throughout the year. Haley also managed the IFPDA's social media accounts, increasing the organization's overall following by nearly 500%. In addition to coordinating all communications, Haley planned and executed on-site programming during the fair as well as off-site VIP programming at various museums and institutions throughout New York City. She worked closely with the Fair Manager and Operations Manager to coordinate all on-site shipping logistics for approximately 75 exhibitors and vendors.
Shortly after the 2019 IFPDA Fine Art Print Fair, Haley was promoted to Member Relations and Events Manager. In this role, she would connect directly with IFPDA members, work with them to update available artworks on their member page on the IFPDA website, and coordinate additional programming and events outside of the annual fair. Haley's employment with the IFPDA unfortunately ended in April 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, with all fairs and events cancelled for the foreseeable future. Before that, she was working to develop a new series of programming in various cities worldwide where IFPDA members are located, mainly in New York, Los Angeles, and London.
THE ARMORY SHOW
Administrative Assistant | July 2017-May 2019
Haley began at The Armory Show as a temporary Administrative Assistant. After five months, she was promoted to a full-time role due to her ability to work cross-departmentally and implement organizational systems. In this position, Haley acted as an assistant both to the office as a whole, as well as to each department of the fair as needed. In the Administrative department, she acted as the office's liaison with its Chicago-based parent company on matters such as Human Resources and IT. She managed the Executive Director's incredibly busy travel schedule, expenses, and overall calendar; coordinated weekly Production Meetings by compiling the agenda, post-meeting minutes, and action items; received all incoming mail and distributed throughout the office; kept a detailed inventory of office supplies and ordered more as needed; and was the first point of contact for all general information or questions about the fair.
Haley's role included being the On-Site Show Office Supervisor during the fair. In the couple months leading up to the fair, Haley interviewed, hired, and onboarded approximately 20 temporary assistants and assigned them roles within the various departments of the fair based on their skills and experience; organized the shipment of supplies to/from the office and storage unit; and provided excellent customer service to exhibitors and guests.
Additionally, Haley worked closely with the fair's Marking Manager to coordinate contracts with Media Partners, track and archive all digital and print advertisements, and coordinate partner deliveries on-site. She assisted in content creation for social media, edited and proofed outgoing newsletters, worked extensively in Excel on exhibitor information, and completed regular data cleanups of the fair's internal database.
Fair Assistant | January-March 2016
Volunteer Coordinator | March-September 2016
Assistant to the Fair Manager | September-December 2016
Throughout the year 2016, Haley held various roles at New York's Affordable Art Fair and PULSE Contemporary Art Fair, both owned by Ramsay Fairs. In her first role as Fair Assistant for the last New York edition of PULSE, she assisted with various tasks as needed, including organizing exhibitor forms and information, tracking form submissions, and assisting with on-site setup and breakdown. Having proved that she was a reliable and efficient team member, she was welcomed back for the Spring and Fall editions of the Affordable Art Fair as the Volunteer Coordinator. In this role, she reached out to and hired volunteers for the fair, compiled the run-of-show schedule for approximately 15 volunteers, and delegated tasks as needed throughout the week. In additional to her volunteer coordinator responsibilities, Haley assisted the Fair Manager in compiling on-site forms in preparation for the fair and coordinated all freight load-in and load-out at the start and end of the fair by liaising with the venue's labor union. In her final role with the Ramsay Fairs team, Haley traveled to Miami Beach for PULSE Contemporary Art Fair, where she hired and scheduled on-site volunteers, delegated tasks, and assisted all team members as needed.
