ART MASTER: Art critic and independent curator Heather Jeno has been contributing her art-world insights to The Independent for some months. With an MA in art history and museum studies from USC, Jeno brings considerable expertise to our visual art section. Originally a Minnesota girl, Jeno considers herself fully California-fied after seven years in the Sunshine Stateshe’s even married to a surfer. This week, she debuts a new Indy column, Off the Wall, where she considers the merits of art displayed in Santa Barbara’s less conventional exhibition spaces. Also, turn to page 68 for her review of Philip Koplin’s sketches at the Arts Fund Gallery. “I began as a visual artist,” Jeno explained, “but decided in college that art history was a more lucrative profession. Many student loans later, I’ve proven myself wrong.” We think she fits in perfectly.
