JAYJAY

With more than 30 years of experience between them, JAYJAY’s owners, Beth Jones and Lynda Jolley, personify a fundamental truth about art dealing. Namely, that it is first and foremost an exercise in connoisseurship: of attracting top artists and then sharing their work with others by way of passionate example.

Jones and Jolley are both “obsessive collectors,” and their ability to modulate their enthusiasm to suit the needs of their clients has enabled them to build a reputation for integrity, taste, and vision.

One measure of their vision is the company they keep. JAYJAY’s small stable of artists includes many of the region’s most respected names, about 20 in all, representing painting, sculpture, and photography. And while these artists are all quite different from each other, they do have two things in common: they are all mature artists with extensive exhibition records and they have regional or national reputations.

Another measure of JAYJAY’s vision is the role that Jones and Jolley have played in the community as tastemakers. As recently as 10 y... [ Read all ]

Women Under The Influence
Conversations in paint with Jane Callister, Wendy Kveck and Mary Warner

June 6 through July 28
Artists’ Reception: Thursday, June 14 from 5:30 to 8

JAYJAY celebrates the hot temperatures of summer with an equally hot exhibit featuring three women artists who share similar interests in the sensuous and luxurious medium of paint. This is also an opportunity to explore the effects of inspiration, mentoring, and influence among artists who share and critique each other’s work. Both Wendy Kveck and Jane Callister received their MFA degrees at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, where they studied with Mary Warner. Ms. Callister now teaches at UC Santa Barbara and Ms. Kveck is an instructor at University Nevada at Las Vegas. Ms. Callister shows often in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara with exhibitions to note such as the 2006 California Biennial at the Orange County Museum of Art and “Step into Liquid” at Otis Art School, curated by esteemed art historian and curator, Dave Hickey.
