Platemark s3e18 the print ecosystem: Susan Teller, dealer

In s3e18, host Ann Shafer talks with dealer Susan Teller, whose eponymous gallery operates out of the Mana Fine Arts facility in Jersey City, NJ. Susan specializes in American paintings and works on paper of the mid-twentieth century. She also works with multiple artists’ estates including Peggy Bacon, William Baziotes, Bernarda Bryson Shahn, Sue Fuller, Michael J. Gallagher, Peter Grippe, Fannie Hillsmith, Hugh Mesibov, Angelo Pinto, Anne Ryan, Louis Schanker, Karl Schrag, Judith Shahn, Ben Shahn, Mitchell Siporin, Harry Sternberg, Ansei Uchima, and Lynd Ward. Ann was eager to talk with Susan about managing estates and what are descendants supposed to do. How do you approach a pile of stuff in the attic by aunt so-and-so? And of course, Susan’s relationships with families of many of the women who worked at the New York Atelier 17 in the 1940s and 1950s was too intriguing for Ann to pass up.
