Jane Eckert and her Eckert Fine Art Gallery + Consulting represents some of the most famous artists of our time, but here in the Tri-state area she is particularly known as the exclusive agent for Sharon, Conn., beloved painter Eric Forstmann.
Eckert announced last week that she is closing her gallery in Kent, Conn., on Monday, Nov. 16, and moving onto the campus of the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) in North Adams, Mass.
The new gallery will open on Saturday, Dec. 4, with work by Sol LeWitt, James Turrell, Robert Rauschenberg, Forstmann, Alice Dalton Brown, Chizuru Morii Kaplan and Hunt Slonem.
In a news release, Eckert, who is a past chair of the Director’s Advisory Council at MASS MoCA, said she is looking forward to “being in the Berkshires full-time and on the campus of this wonderful museum.”
In addition to her affiliation with MASS MoCA, she is also chair of the President’s Circle at Hancock Shaker Village in Pittsfield, Mass.
