Join Warren Colbert, collector and Ringling Museum of Art board member, in conversation with noted gallerist Karen Jenkins-Johnson.
   
Karen Jenkins-Johnson is the founder of Jenkins Johnson Gallery, located in San Francisco, CA and Jenkins Johnson Projects in Brooklyn, NY. She has over 25 years of experience as a curator, manager and entrepreneur in the arts. The San Francisco gallery, opened in 1996, is a renowned dealer of contemporary art and represents international artists working across disciplines. The New York Project space, profiled in The New York Times, opened in 2017 and has become a hub for critically acclaimed curators and emerging and mid-career artists of color. Ms. Jenkins-Johnson was recently featured in periodicals including The Art Newspaper “How the art industry is grappling with its systemic race inequality”; in the New York Times “Black Gallerists Press Forward Despite a Market That Holds Them Back”; in New York Times Style Magazine as one of a small but influential group of black galleries; and in AIPAD Exposure Magazine on diversity in the art world. She was recently named as a 2020 Artnet Innovator; as part of Observer Arts Power 50; and as a 2021 ARTNews Decider.
   
Mr. Colbert and Ms. Jenkins-Johnson will discuss the Ringling’s exhibition Sam Gilliam: Selections in the context of the current art market and emerging trends in collecting, including the rediscovery of master artists. Audience members will have a chance to participate in the conversation and ask questions of Ms. Jenkins-Johnson.
