I opened Jennifer Perlmutter Gallery to engage more with the public, to empower other artists, and to elevate the conversation about art in this region. Great art speaks truths we all understand. It shares beauty that enriches, heals, and transforms our lives.
With a degree from Emerson College, Jennifer began her career in Los Angeles as an Art Department assistant in Film and TV. She then focused on design and furniture, exploring high-end finishing techniques as well as fine art materials and methods. This earned her an exclusive contract to create special paint effects in South Korea for two luxury real estate destinations.
Between 2000 and 2008, Jennifer refocused her talent on Fine Art, developing a skilled facility with materials, composition, and design. She sold work to collectors like Eddie Murphy and Burt Bacharach.
After moving to the Bay Area, Jennifer attended an artist intensive program in Taos that elevated her career even further. This is where her mastery in the studio met pointed expression, giving her work a resonant emotional depth.
Jennifer’s most influential teachers have been Katherine Chang Liu, Alex Powers and Christopher Schink. They inspired her love for non-objective painting which suits her self-reflective nature. Her process is a call and response method using color, texture, and line to mark the moment or a memory.
Her work has been exhibited in San Francisco, New York, and Los Angeles, and collected internationally. Commissions are shown in major hotels like the Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas, Mirage in Las Vegas, and Toronto’s Casino Niagara. In 2010, she gave a TEDx talk on innovation and art. The talk communicated her approach to art and business: one brick at a time, from where ever you are, responding to what is and trusting the process.
In 2014, she opened the Jennifer Perlmutter Gallery in Lafayette, CA to bring the deep experience she has with art to another lever. She continued to make art while curating and showing the work of others, helping more people develop strong connections with art. Her mission is sharing compelling fine art that touches and inspires.
