Last fall, when Jane Hart departed after eight years as director of exhibitions at the Art and Culture Center/Hollywood, she left a legacy of strong relationships with artists, fellow curators and institutions. She also left in place exhibition programming through January 2018.
Those commitments are being honored, center director Joy Satterlee assured in a recent interview. However, “life happens” to artists, she said. They move away, get pregnant, sell their work, etc. Consequently, while reviewing applications for a new full-time curator, the center is engaging interim curators to fill empty slots.
For one, the annual Abracadabra fundraiser show was put on hold, so artist and curator Francesco Lo Castro, “a friend of Jane’s and a friend of the center,” offered to step in, selecting two of the five artists currently exhibiting.
