As an independent curator, Dale produces various curatorial projects, charity exhibits, and special pop-up art events, including major exhibits at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, the LA Convention Center, Stagecoach Country Music and Art Festival, the Reef at LA Mart, and multiple galleries around Los Angeles. Her charity exhibits have benefited Art Share LA, Portraits of the Fallen Memorial, Christian Health Centers, Cycle of Lives Cancer Research, and Free Arts for Abused Children. As an art marketing and communications consultant, she creates and implements marketing, PR and social media strategies for artists, galleries, and art organizations. She is also a freelance writer covering art, artists and events in the LA area.
Dale Youngman is an art entrepreneur involved in many aspects of the art world – from independent curating of exhibits to private art sales, marketing/PR and social media for artists and art organizations, to staging homes and commercial properties – all to facilitate the flow of art in Los Angeles. Her fascination with the local art scene (and friendships with many downtown artists) prompted her to open a gallery in 2006 in the center of Downtown LA's Gallery Row while it was still a controversial area. As the galleries began multiplying and the crowds grew, so did her love and knowledge of the exploding Los Angeles contemporary art scene. After selling and marketing art for over a decade and curating more than 80 exhibits, she has a vast knowledge and data base of local artists, collectors, gallery owners and press, thus making her a valuable consultant for anyone involved in the business of fine art.

Dale is at her happiest when surrounded by art and artists. She attends multiple gallery openings every weekend, always looking for the next rising star, or for a hot new gallery to write about. Her art coverage has included a regular column for DowntownLALife.com called “Daley’s Weekly,” where she covered art events featured in the burgeoning downtown art neighborhoods, writing artist profiles for the regional Fabrik Magazine, (LA’s leading art & design quarterly), providing event coverage and artist interviews for CartwheelArt.com, and art editorials for the international publication Art Voices.
