Art & Design for the Modern Collector

Based in Newport Beach, California, Kennedy Contemporary proudly showcases exceptional emerging and established artists. We strive to break down traditional barriers by focusing on accessibility and connecting collectors with art that will enrich their lives. All pieces are carefully curated with attention to quality and detail. Furthermore, we support our community at large, by hosting educational events, partnering with nonprofits, and offering consultation services. Let us share our passion with you.

Founder And Owner

Victoria Kennedy

Victoria holds a BA from Stanford University and a Masters degree in Art Business from Claremont Graduate University. Her experiences range from high end brick-and-mortar galleries to an online art platform. She has worked with international and local artists facilitating sales for private and corporate clients around the world. Victoria’s true passion is advising and promoting artists and sharing their stories with collectors.

Outside of the contemporary art sphere, Victoria has worked in the rare book industry and as an active travel guide in France. When not at the gallery, you can find her reading at a local coffee shop or hiking with her husband.

Fine Art Consultant

Vivian Browne

Vivian Browne comes to Kennedy Contemporary as a communications professional experienced in Public Relations and Marketing with a passion for contemporary art. Earning a BA in Humanities at the University of California, Irvine, and a local resident since 1976, Vivian’s strength lies in connecting the art gallery to the media industry, potential clients, and community partnerships with local businesses. She began her career as Director of Public Relations and Marketing for a landscape architect company and then commercial interior design firm. Her art enthusiasm began as a Board Member at the Pacific Art Foundation, an active and well-curated art collection at the Pacific Club in Newport Beach.

Outside of the gallery, Vivian enjoys reading books, hiking, and (in her opinion what ought to be an Olympic sport) pickleball.
