Like every other facet of our economic world, the art worlds years of unconscious consumption has been replaced by a studied and thoughtful pursuit of value and quality;a perfect time for the appearance of 101/Exhibit.
101/Exhibit opened for Art Basel 2008. The three men associated with the endeavor have extensive but varied backgrounds in the arts. Jerome Shaw, Sloan Schaffer & Adam Wolfson are collectively in the business of identifying, finding and bringing to market art that many might not otherwise have the opportunity to see. The art that 101 exhibits is intended to turn the 101 space into a venue where ideas are challenged, explored, dissected and formed anew and where exceptional art is recognized and appreciated without regard to age, convention or origin.
Jerome Shaw is recently retired from a life that ran successfully on two very distinct platforms for more than 40 years. An attorney by training, Mr. Shaw, the businessman, founded and ran a number of insurance entities; the last of which, as its’ founder and Chairman, recently became a N.Y.S.E. company. The other Mr. Shaw spent his time as a student, avid collector and sometime art dealer, developing widely acknowledged expertise in his fields while serving as a board member and board Chairman on various boards at the Detroit Institute of Arts.
Sloan Schaffer holds a Master of Architecture Degree from the University Of Michigan. Growing up in a house full of art and literature was all that was needed to launch him on a career as an artist. As an architect and having worked as an award-winning creative jeweler as a youth, he brings to the mix, in addition to a well-informed opinion, an artists’ appreciation of the work of others.
Adam Wolfson secured his M.B.A. from George Washington University with an emphasis in small business and finance. After working for several years in fields directly related to his education Adam, who has always loved art and is a serious musician and song writer, began to think about how he might combine his creative needs with his training----welcome to 101/Exhibit Adam!
