LOLLY MAHANEY

Lolly's childhood was rich with creativity, music and personal exploration. It is no surprise that she has spent her career passionately supporting the arts.

Lolly is most inspired when working directly with creative geniuses to help them reach wider audiences. She has assisted notable artists, writers and musicians with their exhibitions, marketing, and fundraising.  Her natural ability to locate talent and then encourage and nurture their careers has been reinforced by roles as gallery director, program coordinator, event chair and media relations specialist. 

She is also dedicated to supporting arts-related non-profits. She was Marketing Director for the Indianapolis Art Center and Founding Director for the Southern Indiana Center for the Arts. 

Lolly opened the Kellar Mahaney Gallery in 2008 to showcase her incredible mother’s work alongside that of other contemporary midwest artists. Response to her mother’s work has grown rapidly. Lolly now represents and manages all aspects of Kellar Mahaney. 

Creating new ways to share my mother’s artwork is truly a dream made real.
