Jennifer Stoots

Jennifer StootsLately Art Focus has been looking at people who operate art spaces, many of them alternative. But what about those who operate sans space? People who make things happen unattached to real estate? Jennifer Stoots is a prime example. She is a photography specialist, advising clients and collectors, appraising artworks, curating exhibitions, writing and lecturing. She also represents artists, including Stu Levy, who has a show up at Augen Gallery right now. Jennifer will be my guest this coming Tuesday, the 21st of December.
