Eric Ben-Kiki: After moving back to the Hartford area from Cleveland in 1991 Eric worked at managing Trinity College’s and University of Hartford, Joseloff Gallery’s respective art collections along with designing and installing ongoing exhibits. In 1994 he went on to work at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art as an exhibit designer working on exhibitions which garnered national and international acclaim.
Since 1998 he has been owner of EBK Framing and Art Services specializing in all aspects of art presentation such as museum framing, lighting, restoration and exhibition design. Clients include businesses, museums, non-profits and private collections in Connecticut.
Over the last twenty-five years Eric has been consistently curating and producing exhibits showcasing regional and national artists.
This has led to the most current project, founding EBK Gallery, a Hartford based gallery for the exhibition and sale of contemporary art. EBK Gallery specializes in curating and presenting small and focused one person exhibits which are all viewable at ebkgallery.com.
Eric also serves as a board member of the Hartford Art School and Advisory Board Member of The Connecticut Forum and has pretty much been a lifelong hardwired optimist.
