Panel Discussion Explores Dynamics of Today’s Art World

Annual Avenues of Art and Design Trade Day

How does art find its way today from the artist’s studio to a collector? What interactions take place among art world players in the online age?

I enjoyed taking part as one of the four guest speakers to address these issues at the panel discussion “The Art of Collaboration: New Dynamics in the Worlds of Art and Design” which took place yesterday as part of the annual Avenues of Art and Design week in West Hollywood. David Keeps, reporter for the Los Angeles Times and a contributing editor at House Beautiful Magazine, was the moderator of this event, set in the resplendent Phyllis Morris Showroom.

The panel lineup included art advisor Cheryl Perkey of Perkey Fine Art, designer Nancy Isaacs, ArtSeen gallery director Leonardo Ledesma and sculptor Cheryl Ekstrom.

And don’t miss the annual ART & DESIGN WALK, today, Saturday March 26, 2011 from 3 to 7pm on The Avenues in West Hollywood, with cocktail receptions, live music and entertainment, food trucks and more!
