Jen Bekman is the Founder and CEO of several projects, including the Jen Bekman Gallery, 20x200, and the Hey, Hot Shot photo competition. Jen strongly believes that everyone should be able to collect art, without the hoity-toity attitude of many art galleries and collectors. She also wants artists to be able to make a living from selling their work - which she believes is best accomplished by giving the general public the chance to buy high quality, affordable art.
Jen Bekman is a gallerist, entrepreneur and writer. Her eponymous gallery has been on Spring Street in NYC since 2003. She is also the founder of Hey, Hot Shot!, the internationally acclaimed photography competition. Her most well known venture is the pioneering website 20x200, an ecommerce business that offers limited-edition fine art prints at affordable prices; Jen is the site's curator and its CEO. A builder and denizen of online communities since before the advent of the World Wide Web, Jen is currently most active on Twitter (@jenbee) and Tumblr (at jenbee.tumblr.com).
