This summer is full of (somewhat) new faces at the Tinney Contemporary! We are thrilled to welcome back Jan DeLozier who interned with us in 2013 who will now be working as our gallery assistant! We are so excited to be working with her again and want you to get to know a little bit about her! Here’s a little bit about Jan written by Jan herself!
“Hello hello ciao hello.
My name is Jan DeLozier & it feels good to be back at Tinney Contemporary. Susan and Sarah were just the sweetest to have me as an intern here at the gallery, alongside my good friend Alex Penn (hi, Alex!), back in 2013. We sometimes had to beg people to come to the Art Crawls, but oh man did we have fun shows! Through the years, I’ve always kept up with the crew here and now I am back in Nashville helping do the gallery-thing!
In between then and now, I graduated from Sewanee: The University of the South where I studied Art History and Women’s and Gender Studies. Upon graduation, I moved in with my fabulous Godmother and helped take care of her adorable dogs. Later that summer, things got serious and I attended a Scholars program at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business where I studied Finance, Accounting, and Marketing. Just before Chicago’s wind became too bitter, I moved to Venice, Italy where I worked at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. My work there was dynamic as I gave presentations, sold tickets, completed condition reports, assisted in education courses, and repeated the lines “please, don’t touch” in as many languages I could remember. From the city on the water, I then moved to the high prairie desert of Marfa, Texas, where I worked at the Chinati Foundation. I worked alongside some rock stars within the Development office, also giving tours and assisting with conservation 😉 and education 🙂
When I am not at Tinney Contemporary, you can probably find me barefoot in a yard somewhere. Happy to be here and happy to help- come by and say hi y’all!”
