Gallery Curator Andrew Julo began work at Saint Vincent Gallery in the summer of 2018.
Growing up in Kansas City, Missouri, he has always been interested in art and visual culture. He studied art at Saint John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota—the first monastery Saint Vincent established in 1857. After graduation, he joined the Benedictine Volunteer Corps sponsored by Saint John’s.
Working as a fulltime volunteer, he assisted the monks of Il Monastero di San Benedetto in Subiaco, Italy by offering guided visits of the medieval complex and organizing the display of select art and artifacts.
Upon his return to the United States, he continued to pursue hands-on experiences in the fine arts through custom framing, gallery management, and exhibition preparation.
Inspired by thaumaturgy, ritual practice and contemporary Christian art, he obtained a master’s degree in art at the University of Missouri—Kansas City.
Before coming to Saint Vincent, he worked as a member of the curatorial team managing the Hallmark Art Collection, assisting with the research, installation, and interpretative aspects of managing Hallmark’s corporate collection.
