Over the past several decades, the Jan Baum Gallery has introduced scores of artists to the Los Angeles scene, including new talent as well as acclaimed masters. As a result, it has become one of the most respected art galleries on America's West Coast. Founder Jan Baum is especially noted for finding and presenting exotic tribal art from the African continent, with special emphasis on sculpture and carvings as well as paintings and assemblage.
The selection of ever-changing exhibitions here has been described as "thoughtful, insightful and provocative." The works of world-renowned sculpture artist Alison Saar can be seen here, including her extraordinary "Hanging Man." Among the many other artists who are represented by the gallery or have been selected for group exhibitions are Annette Bird, Bob Crewe, Jim deFrance, Michael Dvortcsak, Bella Feldman, Rainer Fetting, and Sylvia Glass. They are joined by Madden Harkness, Kathryn Jacobi, Mavis McClure, Selma Moskowitz, Tino Rodriguez, Anne Siems, Adam Wolpert, and Takako Yamaguchi, to name but a sampling.
