Rebecca Lax brings over three decades of experience to the contemporary art and print worlds from her base in New York City. A graduate in painting and printmaking from Bennington College, Vermont, she started her career through the college’s renowned Non Resident Term internship program. Her journey in the art world started with a pivotal summer stint at the esteemed Leo Castelli gallery. Over the years, she held significant sales and administrative roles at various contemporary galleries in NYC, including Assistant Director at Galerie Lelong and Sales at Jim Kempner Fine Art. Briefly stepping away from the NYC art scene, she ventured into scenic painting for the Public Theater, honing her skills under the tutelage of Lester Polakov at his famed scenic studio. Her expertise extends into the print market, encompassing roles such as sales and print curator at Solo Press, registrar at Pace Prints, and Director of Finance at the LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies, Columbia University. More recently, she has served as a Senior Print Specialist at artnet auctions, Auctionata/Paddle8, and Bonhams. In 2014, Rebecca established her own consultancy business, Lax & Associates LLC, situated in Brooklyn, NY, marking another milestone in her art centric career.  Rebecca has recently joined HA as a Consignment Director for the New York office, sourcing Prints, Multiples and Contemporary art, as of May 1, 2024.
