About Our Team


UGallery was imagined and launched by Alex Farkas and
joined by his tech-savvy sweetheart Leah Drake, ebullient
art advisor Samantha Greene, and his mother and artist
Carol Wittner.

Alex Alex Farkas, Gallery Director

Alex enjoyed a small town childhood in the old mining town
of Jerome, Arizona - there were more ghosts than
residents and the arts community thrived. It was his
mother’s ceramic studio and gallery that first nurtured
Alex’s taste in art. He spent his early years carving wood
sculptures, exploring abandoned buildings, and avoiding
the rattlesnakes and centipedes under every rock.

At the University of Arizona, Alex loved studying art history
and sculpture, and he also enrolled in the Entrepreneur-
ship program. It was here he realized he could combine
the two worlds of art and business. Graduating in 2006,
Alex launched UGallery using his entire savings. After a
few years, he packed up a truck and moved to San
Francisco to join its vibrant art market where he runs
the business today.

Alex has curated the UGallery portfolio since its inception,
hosted booths at the New York Affordable Art Fair for over
8 years, and seen UGallery featured in dozens of
publications including the New York Times, Washington
Post, and TechCrunch.

Samantha Samantha Greene, Art Advisor

Samantha may be the most personable art advisor in the
entire industry. Seriously. One of our long-time clients
jokingly wrote us, “[We] have been great fans of
Samantha’s since our first inquiry and subsequent
purchases. UGallery isn’t too bad either.”

Combining her academic background and a deep love of
art, Samantha brings sheer joy to the art buying
experience. She grew up in Menlo Park, California and
remembers loving art from a young age. She studied Art
History with a focus in Greek Antiquities at Boston
University, and continued her education with a Masters in
Art Business at Sotheby's in London. After graduating, she
interviewed for positions at several bay area galleries but
was put off by the seemingly pretentious nature of the
business and worried that she may not actually fit the art
world. On her last interview attempt, she happened to walk
into the UGallery office and found a welcoming team. That
was back in 2012! Today, Samantha is the face of the
company. Reach out with a question, and you’ll see her art
knowledge in action. Either she’ll find an artwork that you
love, or help you commission a custom piece.

Leah Leah Drake, Marketing and Tech

Leah has been on this art-filled journey with Alex since
before he launched UGallery in 2006, holding late night
strategy sessions and working art fair booths. After moving
to San Francisco with Alex, Leah was a high-school
science teacher at two SF schools and then spent three
years as a software developer at The RealReal and
Sonder. In 2018, Alex finally was able to convince Leah to
join the team, and they love running a family business
together. Leah holds degrees in Biology and Spanish from
ASU and a Masters in Teaching from the University of
San Francisco.

Carol Carol Wittner, Curator

Carol curates the art selection with Alex on a weekly basis.
She elevates the collection with her background as an
award-winning ceramic artist and decades of experience
running her own fine arts and crafts gallery. Her influence
on UGallery’s collection goes far back to before the gallery
existed. As Alex’s mother, it was her gallery, Sky Fire, that
first sparked Alex’s taste in art. During her 33 years
running the business, Sky Fire was included in Sunset
magazine’s Best of the West and regularly included in
Fodor’s annual guides as a must-see destination in
Arizona. Additionally, she spent many years working as
a visual merchandiser in the gift industry, with clients
including the Hollywood Bowl. In 2008, she sold Sky Fire
and now loves spending quality time with Alex curating
artworks for UGallery each week.
