Meet The ArtServe Staff
Sophie Bonet is an interdisciplinary artist and curator based in Miami, Florida. Her academic background includes studies in anthropology, world history, and fine arts.
Sophie was exposed to the arts from an early age and discovered her passion for curating when assisting the research and curatorial department at the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA). This passion took her to explore platforms in the United States such as the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston; and eventually relocated to South Florida, where she continued her curatorial practice at Village Design Art Gallery in Fort Lauderdale.
In 2017 she founded Arts Des Femmes, an all-female touring exhibition composed by multidisciplinary local and international artists. This experience introduced her to feminist concepts and values in the arts that will be reflected later in her career.
Her interests include contemporary social justice issues. And, in her current role as lead curator for ArtServe, an arts organization based in Fort Lauderdale, she's committed to creating a creative platform for multidisciplinary artists to develop and expose meaningful works with the mission of empowering and advancing the arts for social good.
Jennifer Gettinger, Marketing Coordinator, has roots in New York but considers herself a South Florida girl through and through. She has a long history in the non-profit industry and is invested in the growth of the community. Jennifer managed field trips and summer camp programs at Young At Art Museum; before that she worked as a case manager at Covenant House Florida, where she focused on providing basic needs of the Ft Lauderdale homeless population. Jennifer holds a Bachelor’s Degree in English from Florida International University and is a true writer at heart. Jennifer began working at ArtServe in 2018 and is excited to continue her journey of bringing the arts to an even wider, more diverse audience as the Cooperative Marketing Program expands.
