jdc Fine Art is excited to relaunch public exhibitions from San Diego. jdc Fine Art will celebrate its revised vision as a private dealer & project space with a group show of work by core artists who’ve recently hit personal milestones and reflect sensibilities we champion.
This spring saw the launch of an initiative we consulted on in Chicago: The Annex | Murals. The Annex is a cultural space within the newly renovated Hotel Chicago in the West Loop.
Art comes alive when you share it. This month we were proud to share the works in our personal collection with the San Diego Museum of Art's Gallery Collective. The Gallery Collective offers members special VIP access to Museum events and is a passport to happenings outside the box and in the greater San Diego Arts community.
jdc Fine Art specializes in content-driven work by rising contemporaries. Artists range within the established canon, but all have formal training, are in museum collections, and have shown nationally and internationally. On the whole, our Artists make work that is a mirror to our time.

Opening Night, Feb. 15
We are excited to announce our participation as an Exhibitor in Art Palm Springs.
This spring, Jennifer Greenburg accepted the invitation to work outside her photo-frame and collaborate on the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation's Public Art Initiative "K-9's for Cops." The work will display on Michigan Ave. with 300 other statues and eventually be on permanent display at the Kinzie Hotel in downtown Chicago.
For years we have recommended artists to apply to Photolucida's Critical Mass (online review), and this year marked the first time jdc Fine Art was invited to review at the bi-annual portfolio review in Portland. (We represented the programming choices of both Schneider Gallery and jdc Fine Art at the review.) The Photolucida initiative is an arts nonprofit whose mission is "to provide platforms that expand, inspire, educate, & connect the regional, national & international photography community," and their aims were more than achieved.
Exhibiting at Schneider Gallery: 770 N. LaSalle Dr. #401 | Chicago, IL 60654

Artist’s Reception & Page-through: Friday, May 5 | 5:00 - 7:30 pm
Van Coller has accompanied climate change researchers on expeditions to study tropical glaciers. Defined by latitude, most tropical glaciers will be extinct within the next decade. Centerpiece of the exhibition is an oversized artist's book, Kilimanjaro: The Last Glacier; it features landscapes & portraits of porters. Scale aligns the book with its subject, and recalls ledgers & atlases, thus conjuring themes of archiving, mapping, & exploration.
