OUR STAFF

Laura J. Graham

Laura J. Graham

Laura J. Graham began her gallery career in 1996 at Mickelson Gallery in downtown Washington, DC after having a variety of jobs, which often employed her art abilities.  A well-known and respected DC art dealer, Sidney Mickelson, expanded the antique and picture framing business his father began in 1915 by building an art gallery next door to the original G Street location in 1960.  Concentrating on 20th century artists, Mr. Mickelson was most noted for being the first dealer to represent MC Escher in the US.  Laura worked as co-director of the gallery. When Mr. Mickelson died in 1999, a long-time employee, William W. Parker, bought the framing end of the business, with the intent to form his own art venue.  Laura assisted with the move to New York Avenue by setting up the business systems, manning the framing showroom, promoting events and coordinating the gallery.  Staffed with talented people, and led by the charismatic Bill Parker, WWP Gallery became a vibrant part of Penn Quarter.  When Bill Parker passed away in 2006, The Old Print Gallery was in transition.  It had been purchased by The Old Print Shop and the two remaining founders were reaching retirement age.  Laura started at The Old Print Gallery in 2008, and became manager in 2011.
