Deborah Herringer Kiss has her Bachelor’s Degree in Art History and been working in the Calgary visual arts for over 20 years. Before opening the Herringer Kiss Gallery, Deborah was active in the visual arts community working for other galleries, volunteering with the Calgary Artwalk Society and the Triangle Gallery of visual arts (now Contemporary Calgary) where she was a member of the curatorial committee. Deborah has been instrumental to a number of fundraising initiatives for such organizations as The University of Calgary, The Triangle Gallery of Visual Arts and KOAC (Kiyooka Ohe Art Centre).
