Confessions of THE Art Executor
This blog explains that when my sister Jenny died suddenly I became her Art Executor and had to learn what to do from scratch. I hope these posts explaining what I did (and didn’t) may help others in the same situation – and encourage artists to think ahead as well.
What a difference a frame makes.
We had had under two weeks to pack the contents of the studio. What have we learned, after storing them for three years?
We thought we knew where we were headed, because we had decided our goal was to put on an exhibition.
Clearing Jenny’s studio was a hard and painful experience.
When I look at this painting I think of all the questions I never asked when I had the chance.
Jenny had not made a will, that is, she died intestate.
About two years after we had agreed to be her Art Executors, Jenny died, unexpectedly.
Jenny said that she was thinking of making a will and would like to name us as her Art Executors.
