Gallery Director    

Kate Bonansinga is the Director of the Stanlee and Gerald Rubin Center for the Visual Arts at the University of Texas at El Paso. From 1991-1999 she taught art history at the Oregon College of Art and Craft in Portland, Oregon, where she also served as director and curator of the College's exhibition gallery. There she developed an interest in contemporary art that resides at the intersection of materials-oriented fine craft and concept-driven fine art. Her most recent curatorial projects include Hanging in Balance: Forty-two Contemporary Necklaces and Crossing Over: Photographs and New Video Installations by Willie Varela, both of which are traveling exhibitions. She serves on the editorial advisory board for Artl!ies Magazine, Houston, TX and as a national art peer for the Office of the Chief Architect of the United States. She earned an M.A. in art history, with a focus on the art of Asia, from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
