My career goals and passions are one in the same: to make the world better with art and make art better by bringing it to the world. I have over 15 years of experience working in the cultural sector including bringing art to diverse communities and curation. I have also worn hats to include development, grant-making, board and volunteer engagement, program management, marketing, rebranding, website design, talent acquisition, planning large-scale and intimate events, arts education for children and adults, and arts advocacy.
I am looking forward to assisting organizations and individuals with their creative needs in Northern Virginia and beyond.
"Sarah Berry is talented arts administrator, visionary curator, and a gifted artist. She has curated the Bodzin Art Gallery here at The J for more than four years, providing an extraordinary rotation of beautiful, provocative and inspiring works for the benefit of our members and guests, ages one to a hundred. Sarah has an uncanny ability to identify and engage talented artists from diverse backgrounds and life experiences, and to present their works in meaningful and impactful ways, elevating our gallery in quality and scope, and making art accessible to our J and our community. After a brief, COVID hiatus, Sarah has returned to the Bodzin, to once again breathe life onto our walls and into our hearts, and the return of art in our J was among the first signs that we are returning to some level of normalcy. For that, we will always be grateful to Sarah."

"Sarah Berry is a curating miracle-worker, transforming houses into homes in three different apartments. Sarah carefully helped me sift through my paintings and decorations, think through my goals for each room, decide what would fit where, and then actually frame and hang the art. Her support has made each of my apartments really feel like ME. And, in the case of my last two homes, Sarah also skillfully negotiated the blending of my art with that of my husband’s, helping us find an aesthetic that reflected both of our styles."

"Sarah was a visionary leader in the creation of the 8 Nights 8 Windows 2015 Hanukkah public art project, the first project of this scale for the organization. Sarah played a critical role as a producer, understanding how to stretch our $10,000 to make impactful installations in 8 windows across Boston. As a jury member, Sarah played a key role in the curation of the project."
