Jane Hart has over 35 years of professional experience in the international contemporary art field, active in NYC, L.A., London, South Florida and elsewhere. She has been engaged as a curator, gallerist, publisher of limited edition fine art works and art books, arts writer, and, last but not least, as a working artist.

A 224 page full color, hard cover book by Gean Moreno’s [NAME] Publications was produced to accompany the show, with texts by Erica Ando and Sandra Schulman. Among other awards and accolades, Ms. Hart was named Curator of the Year twice by the New Times.

 

 

 

Hart is also a working artist, known as TJ Ahearn, (an anagram of her name), making vibrant collages that have been exhibited and collected internationally. She will have a solo exhibition of her work at Design Sublime in Little River, Miami, opening on Friday, April 21. Hart attended the School of Visual Arts in New York as well as both the University of Miami BFA Program and Miami Dade Fine Arts Program.

During her tenure at the Center, Hart curated over 100 exhibitions, including an attendance record-breaking show with international sensation LEGO® artist Nathan Sawaya, drawing 13,000 visitors in 6 weeks. Hart also created the lecture series “Hot Topics”, twice given the John L. and James S. Knight Foundation Award, and numerous other special projects. Her 2015 curated exhibition of Wayne White’s art work won the Center’s first NEA grant for an exhibit.

 

 

Hart was founding Director of Muse [X] Editions, a ground breaking, digitally oriented fine arts publisher, the first of its kind in the U.S.. For several years she oversaw all artist projects, marketing, curation of exhibitions and international sales. Hart is also an independent curator and owner of long-standing venture “lemon sky: projects + editions”, a contemporary art business devoted to working with artists through exhibiting and promoting their work.

In December, 2016, Hart was the lead artist of #NowBeHere#3FL, a participatory photographic event held at the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM). This project was initiated by Los Angeles-based artist Kim Schoenstadt. #NowBeHere is staged city-to-city, encouraging female-identifying artists to appear en masse in a documentary photo. 305 South Florida artists participated in the photo. In 2017, Hart has completed numerous curatorial projects, including those at the Armory Art Center and The Box Gallery in West Palm Beach and Design Sublime and Under The Bridge in Miami.

ABOUT ART SALONS:

Our discussions cover the gamut of contemporary art themes, including conceptual, cultural, socio/political, environmental, race and gender focused and aesthetic practices, the materials and techniques used to convey these ideas, and where we fit into the world of contemporary conceptual art. Art Salons also offer the opportunity to explore the practical side of being an artist, enhance professional development, share useful resources, and network with other artists. Elle Schorr, a well known artist / photographer who spends much of her time at museums and art exhibits locally and internationally, has been facilitating the salons, hosted by the Armory Art Center, since 2012. All are welcome to join in these timely explorations of trends in contemporary art and individual artists’ work.

Marlene Rose’s unique work refers to a personal system of symbols that derive their power and strength from the common core shared with our ancestors. Rose rides this ancient energy, and, through the glass, reaches out into time, linking the fragments of what she sees and her part-remembered memories of the past. These glimpses become her visions, and her visions soar into the future, frozen forever in the icy-hot stillness of the glass.

Rose uses a process based on the thousands-year-old tradition of bronze casting, adapted only recently for glass. She pours liquid molten glass into a carefully prepared sand mold, then cools it for six days or more in a specially controlled oven before cracking open the mold and seeing what she has made. This method of making the glass aligns perfectly with the imagery she sees. The rawness and the immediacy of working the sand; the thrill and danger of pouring this magical lava, thousands of degrees hot; and the patient gestation of the piece in the annealing oven. These processes all inform, and are integral in, the final finished creation.

 

 

BenzaitenMarlene Rose

Marlene Rose Creating

 

 

 

“The glass may look like a relic of some ancient time, but each piece holds inside itself the sum of the sharp shards of what I have seen, of unnamed emotions, of visions, concepts and memories. These common threads of human imagery, passing through cultures and time… I am compelled to weave and recompose their nuances, all to communicate the immortal vibrancy of the human spirit”.

cjrAlexander-Chen-A-Night-at-Montmartre

“A Night At Montmartre” by Alexander Chen

 

TRR:  We notice three guitars near your desk, in the midst of this  4, 000 square foot magical showroom filled with art and framing.  Tell us about your interest in the arts.

JR:

I was born in the Bronx and raised in New Jersey with a major focus on making music.  I play drums, brass and guitar, still doing gigs with Fat Daddys, a local rock and roll blues band!  We play community events and parties.  Music and scuba diving were my avocations and I just enjoyed being with people.  My brother and I are close and we have always shared an entrepreneurial spirit.

After trying college, I worked in sales, which seemed a natural fit.  In my 20’s, I took a career counseling test which recommended that I focus on aircrafts mechanics…I received a government grant to study at Tetoborough School of Aeronautics and graduated first in my class!  During the first Gulf War, while working for Luca Aerospace, I met Claire. I liked the work but it was not fulfilling.

CJRFerjo-Dreaming

“Dreaming” by Ferjo

 

 

TRR:  Your journey to the Visual Arts had a circuitous route, involving a computer parts manufacturing company, a computer website hosting farm and new-to-the-scene, E-Bay.  Tell us more.

JR:

It seems like a circuitous route, but it was part of my life journey.  My avocations, specifically scuba diving around the world, led me establish friendships.  Claire  and I worked for a world wide marketing company and my understanding of how to approach sales led to personal growth. Here is a link to one of the articles I wrote many years ago:

http://www.internetnextstep.com/training/motivation/TheScience.htm

When the economy changed, we decided to move to Florida and start over.  While working as Vice President of a computer manufacturing parts business, I also owned a computer server farm, hosting websites at low rates.  My brother owned a market research company and was an avid art patron.  He called me up one day with a proposal:  He saw 50 signed and numbered prints by Moshe Givati selling on E-Bay for $1. each.  It took him an hour to persuade me to buy half while he bought the other half.

 

 

CJRgivati

Artwork by Moshe Givati

 

 

I put one of the prints back on E-Bay and sold it for $32.  I sold a second one… (This was when E-Bay had only auctions, not as it is now, with ‘buy it now’ and fixed prices)..  I had made my money back and we still had 48 pieces left!  I figured this would be a good thing to do at night while I kept my day job.  Then I sold the internet company and focused on buying and selling artwork.  Throughout that time, I learned more about the artists and gained a deeper understanding about the art world.  I started to attend Park West Auctions and buying artwork via the auctions and other sellers and I would sell it on E-Bay.  I did this for a full year, always putting my profits back into the business.

 

 

CJRTarkay a-breif-respite

“A Brief Respite” by Itzchak Tarkay

 

 

I went to Art Miami about 16 years ago and met Israeli art publisher and gallerist, Motti Abramovitz.  Motti’s father had discovered world famous artist, Itzchak Tarkay, and was publishing his as well as other artists’ work.  Motti gave me $100,000. worth of original Tarkay art pieces on consignment and I sold them on E-Bay.  At that point, I began buying works of art by other artists and selling those. My perception of art as a marketable item transformed into a love for art and a real appreciation for the creative process.

 

 

CJRAndrew-Atroshenko-Baseline “Baseline” by Andrew Atroshenko

 

 

TRR:  Do you prefer a certain style or medium of art?

JR:

 

 

I love photorealism, especially hyper-photorealism:

CJREstes_The-Plaza_1991_oil-on-canvas

“On The Plaza” by Estes

 

 

TRR:  You’ve gone beyond promoting and selling art. You also publish artwork and sell to other galleries, auction houses and now, to the public. Tell us more about that process.

JR:

Meeting people of all walks of life has allowed me to network , not only building friendships, but building my business.  One of our most popular artists is Ferjo.  I approached his publisher and was given carte blanc to sell his masterful works. At the same time, I established relationships with other publishers and began distributing artworks to other galleries and dealers, while selling some myself.  I became the main supplier to Princess Cruise Lines’ art auctions, national fund raising art auctions, and auctioneers but never had a “public face”.

 

 

CJRJim-Todd-What-Price-Victory

 “What Price Victory” by Jim Todd

 

 

TRR:  The obvious question is why open a retail operation now?

JR:

We needed to move all of this art out of our house!  Plus, I started publishing some artists myself. After the economic downturn, when many galleries closed, it made sense to Claire and I to sell directly.  People can come directly to the source and can also have pieces of artwork, memorabilia, photos, etc. framed at wholesale pricing.  We still maintain our relationships with galleries, publishers and agents.

 

 

CJRZWARENSTEIN-SOHO-IRON-FLATS

“Soho Iron Flats” by Alex Zwarenstein

 

 

TRR:  Most artists dream of being represented by an agent or having their work published and sold internationally.  Tell us more about publishing artwork.

JR:

Over the years, I have developed an educated eye and a better understanding of what will sell.  Out of 100 artists I meet, only 1 might meet the qualifications for a call back.  There are a few questions I ask each artist, if they meet the criteria of creating good and professional work:

  • Do you have a website?
  • Can we have a good business relationship?
  • Are you coachable? ( If I suggest ideas that are more sealable are you willing to try them?)
  • Are your prices reasonable?  (Prices are based on size)
  • Do you have a large body of work?
  • How quickly do you provide artwork once a piece is sold? 

I will make a commitment to purchase monthly inventory in exchange for being their exclusive agent, publisher and marketer.  We publish limited editions as well as prints.

 

 

CJRPino-Book-Timeless-Visions

“Timeless Visions” by Pino

 

 

TRR:  There is an abundance of art terminology, which often inhibits the person-on-the-street from approaching galleries or artists.

JR:

I love speaking with different community groups about the many misconceptions of the art industry, because being better informed = a successful, ongoing relationship with a customer!  Some of the topics I speak about:

  • Is a lower number in a limited edition worth more?
  • What is an “Artist Proof”?
  • What is an “original”?
  • What is a “unique”?
  • Will my artwork increase in value/ What will increase in value?
  • What are the differences between a lithograph, serigraph and giclée?
  • How does hand embellishing affect the value of a giclée?
  • How can you tell if artwork is fake?
  • We represent hundreds of artists and are happy to speak about all of them.  We carry a large number of International artists.

 

CJRJim-Warren-Making-Friends

“Making Friends” by Jim Warren

 

 

 

 

 

TRR:  Besides framed and unframed art pieces, you sell one of a kind pieces of art glass, sculpture, animation art, Disney Fine Art, art books and posters, vintage posters and sports memorabilia.  Who else do you represent?

 

JR:

We represent over 190 artists.  While some are more well-known, we offer a wide range of subject matter, mediums of artwork and pricing.

  • Ferjo
  • Alex Zwarenstein
  • Juan Cotrino
  • Yana Rafael
  • Alex Antanenka
  • Valter de Morais
  • Gary Benfield

 

 

In addition, CJR Fine Arts & Frame offers appraisals of artwork.  We charge by the piece and do not believe that taking a percentage of the value is the proper formula.

 

 

CJRLebadang-Hoi-Horse-Rider

TRR:  In the next article, we will discuss important information about framing.
