Meet The Team


Program Assistant 

Katie Chirichillo

Katie Chirichillo completed her BFA in Photography from SUNY New Paltz in 2012 and has called the Hudson Valley home ever since. With a decade-plus long career in digital marketing and web content management supporting brands and publications, she is excited to pivot into the Program Assistant role after being a GAC weekend gallery attendant for the last five years. Katie seeks to inspire creativity and change within the local community and is thrilled to join GAC in a greater capacity to do just that. In her free time, Katie loves seeing live music, traveling, cooking, discovering new local businesses and artists, swimming, and being outside in the Hudson Valley.
