Jeremy Stone’s early work experience at Allan Stone Gallery, New York during high school and college led to her first museum internships, guest curating and consulting assignments at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, Sunne Savage Gallery and Massachusetts General Hospital, Grey Building, Boston.

Jeremy founded and directed an eponymous contemporary and modern art gallery in San Francisco from 1982-1991. Curating over eighty exhibitions in nine years resulted in solo museum shows for several of her gallery artists. Stone began appraising artist estates, working with non-profits such as LEAP, the Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco, and curating shows for Nestle Beverage Company’s corporate headquarters during the early 1990s. While serving as director of Career Services and visiting faculty at the San Francisco Art Institute from 1994 to 2000, she began the process of becoming an Accredited Appraiser of Fine Art.
