Dorothy Goldeen has been appointed president of Stone Art, the exclusive administrator of the collection of legendary dealer Allan Stone and overseer of Chelsea-based gallery Allan Stone Projects. Stone “left a remarkable legacy,” commented Goldeen. “I am honored to have the opportunity to illuminate his unique vision and disseminate the works he so passionately collected.”
Stone, who died in 2006, was a recognized expert on the work of Abstract Expressionists including Willem de Kooning, Arshile Gorky, Barnett Newman and Franz Kline. He was among Wayne Thiebaud’s earliest supporters and was his primary New York dealer for more than four decades.
In her new role, Goldeen, with the help of her team, will be conducting private and auction sales, advising collectors and participating in international art fairs. In addition, her team will be curating scholarly exhibitions drawn from the collection as well as providing educational access to the works. Goldeen established her eponymous art advisory firm in 1996 after 23 years as a gallerist in San Francisco and Los Angeles. She has built numerous private collections and mounted more than 200 exhibitions of contemporary art. She serves on the national board of ArtTable and presided as chair of its Southern California chapter from 2012–2014 and previously, from 1992–1994.
