Katharine Earnhardt founded Mason Lane In 2014 because blank walls aren’t fun and buying art is tough. She has a background in art and business, A love for design, and a solid track record for effectively servicing clients. Through experiences at institutions like MOMA and Christie’s, among others, Katharine learned that being creative, practical, transparent, and dedicated go a long way.  Apparently this is true in the art world and real life, and maintaining these qualities earned her abnormal responsibility at a young age—she was networking with museum trustees, flying to international art fairs and overseeing business development efforts in other countries when “kids” her age were sitting at a desk. The education this provided in art, business, and strategy were the perfect complement to Katharine's art history and economics studies at Williams College, and her art business Masters from Sotheby’s Institute.  Katharine is grateful every day to put this all together in one package, helping clients style their walls through Mason Lane.
