Irene McClellan

Irene McClellan has been behind the scenes at the gallery for 15 years, starting when it was just a warehouse and a twinkle in Duncan’s eyes as he envisioned the whole growth of the gallery, gardens, hot shop, and DMG School Project in the now revitalized Warehouse Arts District neighborhood.  Irene grew up in Maplewood/South Orange, NJ and, at the age of 18, moved to St. Petersburg. She attended Eckerd College, where she earned her degree in psychology in 1991 and went on to become a manager at NutriSystem, followed by many years as a paralegal for Jim Beach, Esquire, until his retirement. She officially joined the gallery and DMG School Project team in July, 2019 and enjoys being surrounded by so much stunning artwork, which serves as an inspiration for her own arts and crafts, done purely for enjoyment.
