JCO'S is a beacon of creativity presenting talented artists, with the hope of growing a new community of art collectors.
JCO is Julie Jenkins.
Jenkins worked as an East Coast art dealer for over 14 years, directing the Judi Rotenberg Gallery and founding "Got Art? The Affordable Art Fair".
Upon moving to California with her family, Jenkins opened JCO'S Place • . After three successful years in a small, light-filled space in downtown Los Gatos, Jenkins expanded her business to a larger location-- JCO'S Art Haus.
Jenkins presents art in a casual, comfortable, inviting space that represents 30 to 40 contemporary artists. As an extension of "Got Art?", JCO'S Art Haus hosts biannual Affordable Art Fairs and partners with local businesses to create unique Opening Receptions and unexpected art experiences.
Bridget McMahon // Art Haus Director
Art History graduate, Emerging Arts Professionals fellow, and visual culture fanatic Bridget McMahon is passionate about the ways that art connects us to each other. she is an avid consumer of art news, a frequent visitor of art spaces, and a compulsive object-maker.
Exposure to the rich visual culture of the Bay Area has been immeasurably impactful on her personal development, and lead to a strong desire to contribute to the arts in her community.
Previous positions with the Triton Museum of Art (Santa Clara) and SFMOMA’s curatorial department lead to an understanding of uniquely powerful position of arts institutions. The arts can unite communities, engage the public, and foster cross-cultural respect. A one-year fellowship with Bay Area Emerging Arts Professionals fostered dialogue with those who direct the future of the arts, and understand the unique cultural framework of the Bay Area.
