Jenny Kendler Studio Visit - December 2022
We concluded our Fall 2022 tour season last month with a private tour at the home and studio of artist and climate activist Jenny Kendler. This was a unique opportunity for the tour group to get an intimate understanding of Jenny’s work as she walked us through her practice and gave detailed insight into the art objects in her studio. Thank you to Jenny for the phenomenal opportunity! We are looking forward to our upcoming Spring tours.

Rena Sternberg received the honor of “Best Art Tour” in Chicago Magazine’s “Best in Chicago” issue:
“If the city were a museum, Rena Sternberg would be its docent. Most gallerists, artists, and collectors know her by sight, because she shows up everywhere. Sternberg isn’t your typical private art consultant (i.e., expensive and unavailable): She prefers to travel with an entourage. She helps collectors find great work by teaching them about it through guided tours of the galleries and studios trending in Chicago.” www.chicagomag.com/Chicago-Magazine/Aug…
