About Jubilee Fine Art
In the mid 70's I lived in Florence, Italy for two years. The
experience of living in the former center of the Italian Renaissance, in
which the entire center of town is an extended museum is difficult to
describe. I did not know that this period of time would be a kind of
incubation of my future occupation.
My art collection as a business model grew from my attraction and
exposure to art and especially works created by African American artists.
Many of these artists were exhibited in a small semi publicly funded
gallery in Hartford, Connecticut known as The Craftery Gallery. Artists
were invited to give talks about their work. The intimacy created in these
talks between artist and spectator/patron was inspirational and led me to
begin purchasing art.
I believe that most artwork has a sacred or spiritual component that
accompanies the work. We are all temporary caretakers of this art.
an art collection should be measured not by the appreciating value of the
work, but by the happiness and reflection that is bestowed upon the
