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.

"Gallery Girls" cast includes:
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 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 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 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.
