Allison Hull has been the Gallery Director for Hagan Fine Art since she moved to Charleston in 2013. A Louisiana native, Allison is a graduate of Louisiana State University with BFA’s in Art History and Printmaking.
Her career in the art world began after transitioning from special collections archivist for the Historic New Orleans Collection to becoming the archivist and collections manager for a number of prominent artists and collectors after moving to New York City in 2000. In her spare time, if she’s not in her backyard tending to her garden, chickens or honeybees, she is collaborating with her poet husband on projects combining poetry with printmaking.
From her studies, Allison has a passion to learn and share the stories behind the artists and their works. From her career in the arts, she has a keen eye in finding the right pieces that pair cohesively for your personal collection.

Her education and natural artistic talent have guided her career into the creative world of graphic design and social media marketing.

Charlotte Ball was born and raised in Charlottesville, VA, and graduated from the College of Charleston with degrees in Studio Art and Art History. During college she had internships at several Charleston galleries. Charlotte went on to receive her Masters of Science in Commerce from the University of Virginia.
Following the completion of her masters Charlotte moved back to the city she loves, Charleston, to start her career in the thriving art scene while also focusing her attention on her own large scale figurative oil painting.

Gia Winchester was born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina, but has called Charleston home for a significant part of her life. Prior to focusing on raising her son, Gia had a strong career in television sales and production. Fun fact: Gia has always been dedicated to community involvement, donating her time and attention to various local non-profit groups, like Kiawah Cares, Lowcountry Local First, Mental Health Heroes, Kiawah Art Guild and The Green Heart Project.
As an emerging artist, Gia has a trained eye for color, composition and the important, fine details of brushstroke and texture that make up an artist’s vision. This talent, paired with her previous sales career, has made her the perfect addition to the HFA team. We are delighted to have Gia as a team member.
