ARTnews, Editor in Chief

Sarah Douglas has been an art journalist and editor since 1999. From April 2011 to July 2014, she was Culture Editor at The New York Observer, where she managed writers, worked with numerous freelance critics and reporters, and wrote feature stories. In fall 2011, she launched www.GalleristNY.com, the visual art site of The Observer, which she then oversaw. She also contributed to The Art Newspaper’s daily art fair editions at Frieze, Art Basel, and Art Basel Miami Beach. Prior to The Observer, she was staff writer at Art+Auction magazine, Modern Painters magazine and those publications’ affiliated website, Artinfo.com, which she helped to launch in spring 2005. For four years she ran the U.S. editorial office of the London-based The Art Newspaper, and has contributed to T: The New York Times Style Magazine, New York Magazine online, The Economist’s quarterly Intelligent Life and The National, among others. In 2013 Sarah was the recipient of ArtTable’s New Leadership award.

“When ARTnews was founded in 1902, its editors promised to be “interesting, up to date, and absolutely reliable.”

We were there when Marcel Duchamp’s works at the Armory Show shocked New York; we watched Jackson Pollock paint a picture and went on to call it “Action Painting”; we asked Andy Warhol what Pop Art was (“It’s liking things,” he said); and we were there to track down looted art (winning a National Magazine Award in the process), to sort through van Gogh forgeries, and to keep an eye on institutional malfeasance.

We continue in that tradition today, bringing you—online and in print—in-depth and up-to-the-minute news, and incisive reviews.”
