Passing, Jan Peters, del Mano Gallery

For all who knew her, Jan Peters, our friend over 5 decades, has
passed away. We met Jan while we were all still doing street fairs in
Westwood Village, before she and Ray opened del Mano Gallery. She has
been an inexhaustible advocate for American artists and the
international art community as well. There is no one quite like her
and she will be missed…energy, enthusiasm, dry humor, sharp
honesty, intelligence and can-do spirit. We will miss her as a friend
and business partner. We will even miss arguing with her! She is
woven into the fabric of our lives. We wish her peace.

Marianne and Bill Hunter

Oh, I am so sorry to hear this. I last saw Jan about three years ago
when we sat across from each other on a flight back from Philly. I
grew up in Brentwood, CA and was introduced to Del Mano back in the
days when they used to shut down San Vicente Blvd for the amazing
annual craft show. She will be missed.
