Kathryn McCarver Root is a gallerist and dealer specializing in fine art
photography. McCarver Root opened KMR Arts in Washington Depot, Connecticut in
2007. The gallery showcases both vintage and contemporary photography from the
19th, 20th an 21st centuries, presented in a non-traditional gallery
environment. KMR Arts celebrated its 5th year anniversary in 2012 with a
momentous exhibit of vintage prints by Diane Arbus, a hugely influential
photographer known for her darkly beautiful images. KMR Arts has exhibited
photography by such masters as Ansel Adams, Paul Caponigro, Sally Mann,
Elliott Erwitt, Saul Leiter, Lillian Bassman, and Horst P. Horst among others.
McCarver Root gained her experience over two decades in New York City while
working as a photography editor for books (Lillian Bassman, Bulfinch, Weekend
Retreats, Rizzoli) and prestigious magazines (Esquire, US Weekly, and
InStyle). Since KMR Arts opened in 2007, the gallery has grown and expanded
its reach with individual and corporate clients around the US and abroad.
McCarver Root’s approach is highly individualized and service oriented so that
the client has a solid knowledge of the artist, the photographic print as well
as the context in which the work was created. Since opening the gallery, Kathy
McCarver Root has developed strong relationships within the world of fine art
photography with private dealers, auction houses, and artists in order to
access the absolute best photographs for her clients. The goal is to appeal to
the first time buyer as well as the seasoned collector. KMR Arts offers a full
range of services connected to the framing, archiving, delivery, and
installation of fine art photography.
