“Love of Beauty is taste. The creation of Beauty is Art.” So said Ralph Waldo Emerson and we couldn’t agree more!

Your two-day, art-filled experience in LA—alongside Ann and the Art Agency Partners, the premier art advisory firm to some of the world’s most influential and sophisticated collectors—will begin with a visit to the studio of renowned artist David Benjamin Sherry. Sherry is best known for his vivid use of color, in portraits, abstraction, and nature photographs drenched in rich hues.

Your tour of LA’s contemporary art scene will be specifically tailored around your tastes and interests. Thanks to your VIP hosts, your access to the studios of some of the most important contemporary artists working today, visionary private collections, and other exclusive museum and gallery experiences will go far above and beyond the ordinary.

Among the days’ highlights, dinner with Ann and her charming husband, Joe Wender, in their Santa Monica home. An intimate evening filled with exquisite wines and extraordinary flavors will be an epicurean occasion not to miss. You will indulge in a selection of wines from the Colgin library along with wines from Ann & Joe’s private cellar.

You could not be in better hands than those of Ann Colgin, a revered vintner, serious art collector and avid philanthropist. There’s a waiting list for the ultra-premium reds of Colgin Cellars, one of Napa’s most prestigious producers. A former art and antiques dealer who became the head of west coast wine auctions at Sotheby’s in the early 1990s, Ann currently is an Executive Committee Member of the Board of The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).

As the former auctioneer would tell you, it’s now all about the art of the bid.
