Last summer's first ever online auction was such a success that we decided to reprise the same format for this year's annual fundraiser. Bidding will open Sunday, March 14th at 12:00 noon and close Sunday, March 21st at noon PDT. The auction site, which will have all the great artwork, jewelry, fine wines and spirits, and experiences that you can expect from us, will be available for early preview the week prior to the event.
Save the Date! JAF Online Auction Fundraiser March 14-21
Despite the challenges we've all experienced this year, our belief that world class art is timeless remains unshaken, and we have come to more fully appreciate our magnificent collection. The Jonathan Club’s stable continuity in a world that changes so quickly makes this possible, and the Jonathan Art Foundation in its quiet way ensures that our collection is protected, preserved, and beautifully presented. We also use our knowledge, relationships and judgement to improve and strengthen the collection in ways that enhance our facilities in downtown and at the beach in Santa Monica. It’s gratifying that many of us are already enjoying them carefully once again.
JAF Invites You to Join the 2021 Circles of Support!
JAF is proud to announce its latest acquisition, Poppies and Lupines, (1912) by John Marshall Gamble (1863-1957). Gamble was a giant among the early California Impressionists, and adding this artist to our collection is an important step toward establishing one of the finest plein air collections on the West Coast. This purchase would not have been accomplished without major contributions from friends of the Jonathan Art Foundation.
The Jonathan Art Foundation extended is appreciation to its members of the 2020 Circles of Support, whose contributions allow us to continue our mission to care for and exhibit wonderful works of California art, and preserve this historical perspective of California's influential role in American Impressionism.
Circles members get treated to exclusive tours of elite private collections an exhibitions, art & wine events, and other interesting speakers and venues.
