Jacqueline Terrebonne is now editor in chief of Galerie magazine, according to an announcement. Terrebonne, whose tenure at the now Sandow-owned magazine began in November 2016, previously served as design projects editor at Architectural Digest from 2011 through 2016, with a focus on curating the AD100 list, in addition to roles at Coach, Gourmet, Martha Stewart, Vogue, Scholastic and others.
“Jacqueline brings a multifaceted editorial background that uniquely marries art, design, culture: all the aspects of our mission to inspire our audience to ‘Live Artfully,’” said Galerie founder Lisa Cohen in the announcement.
Margaret Russell—who started consulting on Galerie October 2016 and was appointed editor in chief not too long after—is leaving the publication to devote time to other projects such as her role as Honorary Dean at SCAD, an upcoming book and a design documentary series. The summer issue will be her last as editor in chief.
"Galerie was a terrific opportunity, and I took it originally because it’s a quarterly and it was just a part-time commitment. It’s now at a point where the editor in chief should be a full-time position," Russell tells EAL. "Though I’ve had a lovely experience there, I accomplished what I set out to do—including launching their digital platforms—and my work is done. It’s a beautiful magazine with great promise, but I have existing professional commitments, a design documentary series in the works, and some book projects."
Reflecting on her term, Russell adds: “When I stepped in at Galerie, I brought in a new team, and we made it a more marketable art and design magazine. I gave it more structure, helped to drive ad pages, and we reached an unprecedented level of growth. It’s been exciting to launch a magazine at a time when people thought magazines were dying."
The publication also named a number of new hires, including: Jennifer Ash Rudick, design journalist known for producing the Emmy-nominated documentary IRIS, starring Iris Apfel, is joining the team as editor at large, while Rozalia Jovanovic, former editor in chief of artnet and director of Collective Design, joins the brand as digital director. Galerie says it is working on a refresh of its website in addition to "investing in its digital and social media platforms, and planning for new partnership opportunities and branded events" next year.
“We are thrilled with Galerie’s position in the industry and its issue-over-issue growth. Working with the Cohens on a shared future-focused vision, we are committed to providing the resources needed to fuel expansion,” said Sandow.
Sandow became a major partner in the magazine, which was founded by Lisa and James Cohen, owners of Hudson News and investors in DuJour, late last year. At the time, Adam I. Sandow, chairman and CEO of SANDOW, had said of the magazine's appeal: “I was drawn to Galerie because of the incredible brand that Lisa Cohen has built. She has identified an important niche at the intersection of art, design, and destinations. We are very excited about the opportunity to round out our design portfolio with Galerie and bring this beautiful title under the SANDOW umbrella."
