Fred Perlberg is an art advisor based in Los Angeles, CA. He was born and raised in NYC, studied Art History at the University of Michigan, and received a certificate in Modern & Contemporary Art from Christie’s Continuing Education (London). He assists collectors of all budgets navigate the contemporary art landscape in purchasing work from galleries, directly from artists, and at auction. He also promotes and assists emerging artists as they enter the gallery world, helping them in a variety of ways including their marketing materials and making introductions to collectors and galleries alike. He publishes a digital newsletter (usually twice a month) called The Perlberg Shortlist which features artists at all stages, who warrant more attention. IG: @theperlbergshortlist Ben Quinn (b.1991 Dayton, OH) is an artist living and working in Los Angeles, CA. He received a BFA from Columbus College of Art and Design and MFA from California College of the Arts in 2016. Recent solo exhibitions include Sebastian Gladstone in Los Angeles, STARS in Hollywood, and Et. Al. in San Francisco. Quinn’s work deals mostly with post-psychedelic reflection and sensitivities to the supernatural through painting, sometimes accompanied by image and sound. He has also collaborated with Acne Studios for the Women's Spring Summer runway collection at Paris Fashion Week in 2021. Sarah Skogland is a Norwegian-born, self-taught painter whose painting practice is a byproduct of her lifelong inward journey to greater self-knowledge. While pursuing a modern dance career which brought her to the top of that discipline, Skogland used painting as a means to explore her innermost self and to re-invigorate from the rigors of performing at the highest level. Since retiring from the stage, she has painted full-time. Abstract representations of flowers, rigorous introspection in an always changing world, and a bird flying through space are all subjects the artist has depicted recently within her pouring and reacting technique. Her improvisational process is one that mirrors our place in the world, one where we cannot control final outcomes, but instead have to make the best of what unfolds in a constantly changing and often chaotic world.
