Owner and Director, Jennifer Schwartz Gallery
Jennifer Schwartz is the owner of Jennifer Schwartz Gallery, the writer of the arts advocacy and photographer resource blog, Crusade for Art (which includes the arts engagement project, the Crusade for Collecting), and the creator of the online project, The Ten. Jennifer advocates for emerging artists to be innovative in building an audience for their work.
Jennifer Schwartz is originally from Richmond, Virginia, and has her BA from Colgate University and her MA from Georgia State University. The owner of a successful commercial photography business for ten years, she opened her fine art photography gallery in 2009 to give Atlanta’s thriving photography community a venue to showcase the work of emerging photographers.
Jennifer regularly participates in portfolio reviews such as PhotoNOLA, Photolucida, Atlanta Celebrates Photography, FotoFest and others. She was invited as a curator to the Lishui Photo Festival in Lishui, China in 2011 and travels around the country giving talks, guest-lecturing at universities, leading workshops and hosting photographic retreats through a program she co-developed, Flash Powder Projects.
Jennifer is interested in reviewing developed and innovative collections with cohesive and strong concepts. She is not interested in seeing overly-processed photographs. Aside from offering critiques of the photography itself, she may be able to offer opportunities to artists to show work with the Jennifer Schwartz Gallery in either group or solo exhibitions, as well as offer potential representation.
