About the Juror: Julie Zener – Julie Zener Gallery

Julie Zener has established herself in the art industry as a gallery owner, art dealer, art curator, and artist manager. She represents a broad range of national and international artists who varied in style from oils, photography, sculpture, and mixed media works.

In 1997, she launched her career as an art dealer living in San Francisco. She then lived and worked in Santa Barbara and Spain, and ultimately landed in Mill Valley in 2005 working as a private dealer and artist manager. She created gallery relationships, performed public relations, licensed imagery, and sold artwork directly to many prominent corporations and private individuals for their collections.

Julie participated in numerous art fairs including Affordable Art Fair/NY, Red Dot/Miami, Art Market/SF, Art Aspen, and SCOPE in Miami/Art Basel. She has curated successive art exhibitions and added to her repertoire as art curator for Red Bull, in which she researched and curated 20 artists from each major city to exhibit at highly publicized and attended national art events. Her three year involvement in the tour exposed her to curate exhibitions comprised of many urban influenced and contemporary street artists from popular cities around the nation.  

In 2014, Julie opened Zener Schon Contemporary Art (ZSCA) in Mill Valley, CA with Tara Schon. The gallery sold works by prominent artists and consecutively curated the murals and large scale sculptures at Bottlerock music festival in Napa, CA.  

Julie has founded Julie Zener Gallery located at 18 East Blithedale Avenue #12 in Mill Valley, CA. She is pleased to offer new and exciting artworks from globally recognized artists and provides private “in home” art consulting to her clientele.
