JAF Vice President Judy Jenkins chatted with notable artists Cathy Breslaw, Jane Szabo and Junn Roca, who work in contemporary media, photography, and plein air painting. As participants in this year’s JAF online auction fundraiser "The Art of Virtual Collecting," they shared their work with us, and talked about their studio practice and about what motivates them to work in their own particular genre.
This event was held at the Jonathan Club in Los Angeles on March 14, 2021.
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 Art Foundation in its quiet way ensures that our collection is protected, preserved, and beautifully presented. We also use our knowledge, relationships and judgment to improve and strengthen the collection in ways that enhance our facilities in Downtown LA and Santa Monica. Your donations helps us maintain that mission.
JAF Circles members get treated to exclusive tours of elite private collections an exhibitions, art & wine events, and other interesting speakers and venues.

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.
