Summer is NOT slower as it turns out...
Today, we're meeting Jill Nathanson, a contemporary painter whose work feels summery and uplifting, and stands out from your typical pretty abstracts. Her solo show at a New York gallery just opened, so find out what you need to know about the hows and whys of her work.

Our biz is about matchmaking people with art. And the more art we know about, the better we can matchmake. BUT importantly, I'm picky about what I recommend to clients... I'm hired for my taste, so I have to like an artist's work before even pitching it to a client, and sometimes it takes a lot of looking before finding pieces I like.

When meeting people for the first time, I sense they think I'm a smidge cooler upon learning that I know up and coming artists. I may be wrong, and for those who think so, feel free to stop reading. If you are in the camp of "WOW, SO DO YOU KNOW A LOT OF EMERGING ARTISTS!???", then I hereby dedicate this post to you.
