Meet Victoria Fry: Advisory Board Member
The Collective Rising |
Victoria J. Fry is a New York-based painter, educator, and founder of Visionary Art Collective. She was born in England and lived in Singapore as a child before moving to the United States.
Victoria received her BFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2012 with a concentration in painting. After graduation, she was selected to be part of the Guggenheim Museum’s Learning Through Art program, where she taught students within the museum as well as at PS.9 in Brooklyn, NY. This experience ultimately led Victoria to pursue a career in art education. In 2014, Victoria received her Masters of Arts in Teaching degree from Maine College of Art. She then moved to California for five years to continue her career as a painter and educator.
After returning to the East Coast in 2020, Victoria launched Visionary Art Collective in order to provide artists and educators with opportunities and resources centered around contemporary art. Through exclusive interviews, online exhibits, social media posts, and weekly highlights, Victoria and her team promote the work of contemporary artists and art educators around the globe.
From Victoria: “I am thrilled to be a board member of The Collective Rising, as I strongly believe in their mission to support and empower all women, across industries and levels of experience. I look forward to working alongside Kitty and The Collective Rising’s team to shine a spotlight on women artists, educators, and entrepreneurs and ultimately create more opportunities for women in the arts.”
