After graduating Summa Cum Laude in fine arts and design from Russell Sage College, Ms. Nemer entered the art world as a retail art dealer. In 1986, she opened the Art Collector Gallery in the Sagamore Resort Hotel on Lake George which she ran for 17 years. Her Gallery was an affiliate of the Christie’s Contemporary Art gallery of London, only one of three in the US and consisted of many internationally acclaimed artists from around the world representing France, England, Ireland, Russia, Greece, China, Canada, Germany, Israel, Italy, Hong Kong and Africa. The Gallery also included modern and American contemporary artists, as well as local artists from upstate New York. Having grown up in a family of artists in Philadelphia, she learned to work with many mediums such as oil, watercolor, acrylic, printmaking, silkscreen printing to mention a few. Currently she volunteers at the Hyde Collection Art Museum and is involved with planning their fundraising events.
