BRAVO UNVEILS ITS LATEST MASTERPIECE - NEW DOCU-SERIES "GALLERY GIRLS" PREMIERES MONDAY, AUGUST 13 AT 10PM ET/PT

NEW YORK - June 26, 2012 - Bravo paints a new picture with the launch of its latest docu-series "Gallery Girls," premiering Monday, August 13 at 10PM ET/PT. The show follows the lives of seven dynamic and ambitious young women in New York City who tackle the cutthroat environment of the art world while vying for their dream jobs. From gallery openings and art shows to the hottest events in the city, the women share a passion for art but are divided between their Manhattan and Brooklyn lifestyles with vastly different views and tastes towards fashion, art and men. Attempting to juggle a chic and fabulous standard of living, the ladies tackle financial struggles, family issues and the pressures of jumpstarting their lives in the city that never sleeps.

"Gallery Girls" cast includes:

Chantal Chadwick

Chantal Chadwick is originally from Atlanta, Georgia, but with an attraction to big cities, she decided to move to New York at age 17 to pursue a career in dance. After an unfortunate injury, Chantal had to abandon her dancing career and decided to study art history. During school, Chantal held various jobs in the fashion and art world and was working as a gallery assistant before the opportunity came to open her own space, End of Century, with her good friend Claudia. Faced with the task of balancing their conflicting views of running a business, Chantal also tries to balance having fun in the city and learning to live stress-free. She currently lives in Brooklyn.

Kerri Lisa

Kerri Lisa developed her love of the arts at an early age through studying and training in classical piano and theater along with her many travels abroad during college. A native New Yorker, she grew up in a middle class Long Island home with the dream of living in Manhattan one day. Graduating from Syracuse University with a degree in Entrepreneurship, Kerri has an optimistic attitude with a strong work ethic. Holding a full-time job at a high-end luxury concierge service, she manages the lifestyles of the rich and famous, while also juggling an art internship. Kerri's ultimate goal is to create a lifestyle brand that marries the two industries of art and hospitality, but she struggles with the tightrope of vying for a career while supporting herself financially. Kerri presently lives in Manhattan.

Liz Margulies

Liz Margulies was born into the art world as the daughter of a world-renowned art collector. Originally from Miami, she moved to Manhattan to study graphic design at the School of Visual Arts and to build a career for herself without the connections of her father. Her path to success has been far from smooth: she struggled with drug addiction and didn't graduate from high school. Her tell-it-like-it-is attitude and drive to succeed helped her overcome these obstacles. The question now is, can she juggle a full course load and a demanding internship? Highly motivated, Liz struggles to find balance with hard work and happiness, but grapples with a desire to earn her father's respect.

Claudia Martinez

Claudia Martinez hails from the small Midwestern town of Flossmoor, Illinois and currently lives in Brooklyn. The daughter of a butcher and a cardiologist, Claudia naturally developed an appreciation for the strange and wonderful. She left for the Big Apple after college with hopes of breaking into the contemporary art scene. Interning with many of the art industry's elite throughout her years at Sarah Lawrence College, Claudia took her gallery knowledge to the streets and produced art shows in unusual places. Her latest venture joins good friend Chantal in opening End of Century, a hip boutique/gallery on Manhattan's Lower East Side. The two sometimes have differing ideas on running a business and their friendship may suffer at the hands of success.

Angela Pham

Angela Pham is a freelance photographer and aspiring artist in the creative neighborhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Despite her upbringing in a strict Vietnamese household in Orange County, California, Angela prefers to be in the spotlight and is not afraid to speak her mind. At 18, Angela moved to New York to attend NYU and jumpstart her career in the arts. Although her freelancing pays most of the bills, Angela supplements her income with sporadic modeling jobs and waitressing at a dive bar. Seeing her friends Chantal and Claudia get a business off the ground makes Angela anxious to get her career going. Confident in most areas of her life and particularly with men, Angela's main challenge is being a harsh critic when it comes to her own work.

Amy Poliakoff

Originally from Coral Gables, Florida, Amy Poliakoff studied Communications and Art History at the University of Miami and currently lives in Manhattan. With vast gallery experience under her belt already, Amy has held positions with the Wolfsonian Museum, the David Zwirner Gallery, the Paul Kasmin Gallery and the Leila Heller Gallery. Always making her presence known, Amy is involved in multiple New York based organizations and enjoys partying and living it up in the city.

Maggie Schaffer

Maggie Schaffer is an ambitious young woman trying to make a name for herself in the art gallery world. Her love of art stems from her upbringing in Easton, Pennsylvania, where she was exposed to it through her parents at a very young age. She graduated from Lafayette College in 2010 with a degree in Studio Art/Art History and English Literature. By the ripe age of 24, Maggie secured many of the biggest names in the industry on her resume: Eli Klein Fine Art, Cottelston Advisors and Christie's New York. These internships confirmed her love of Manhattan but the big question for Maggie is: will she be able to stand her ground and land a paying job in the Big Apple? Known for her sweet demeanor, Maggie struggles with the cutthroat environment of the city, but with boyfriend Ryan by her side every step of the way, she works hard to get what she wants. Maggie currently lives in Manhattan.

"Gallery Girls" is produced by the Emmy-Award winning Magical Elves with Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz as Executive Producers on the series along with Alexandra Lipsitz and Kris Lindquist serving as Co-Executive Producers.
