The Past Months and Looking Forward

Over the past few months, Art Peritus has seen incredible change.

Between March and May, Jennifer Garland Ross led three damage and loss seminars for the Appraisers' Association of America. The course introduced attending appraisers to conservators which Art Peritus partners with regularly, such Modern Art Conservation, The Better Image, and Fine Wood Conservation. In July, Jennifer taught an Estate Generalist class for AAA students, as well as continuing her longtime membership of the with the Appraiser’s Association lecture committee. Through these activities, Jennifer has continued to maintain an up-to-date expertise of the art market and foster professional partnerships – not to mention, all while spearheading the continued growth of Art Peritus.

With over a decade of auction house experience, Kate Brambilla has been busy sharing her insider view into the art market. By bringing attention to the advisory side of the business, Kate has widened both the scope and the footprint of Art Peritus. Over the past few months, Kate has been working hard to bring an important private collection to the market – from logistics, to competitive bidding, to client support, Kate has truly been tackling it all.

In June, we welcomed two new members to our team. Kathryn Moldenhauer has joined Art Peritus as a Project Manager. Kathryn, formerly the Program Director at the Appraisers' Association of America, is focusing on large-scale projects primarily related to insurance claims and estates. Kathryn brings a strong eye for detail and methodological experience to Art Peritus – as well as several plants. Madeline Nagy is the new office manager (and the illustrious write of this post). Madeline graduated from the University of Virginia this May after spending several summers interning in various sectors of the art world. Madeline is now working to centralize and administer office functions. If you haven't yet, you are likely to receive a phone call or email from Kathryn or Madeline (or both!) in the coming months.

With our new team, we've been able to handle large-scale jobs with the same level of attention you've grown to expect. With our new website, we're introducing Crisis Management as a new Art Peritus area of expertise. At Art Peritus, we recognize that art crises can take many forms – from water leaks to fires, to cross-country moves and more, Art Peritus is prepared to coordinate the upkeep and conservation of your (or your client's) collection.

Last but not least, as you may well notice, we've also found the time to renovate our website. Keep checking in over the next few months to stay apprised of updates. We've been working hard to reboot our logos and marketing materials to reflect the company's growth and transformation.

Moving forward, we'll be exhibiting at the Appraiser's Association Art Law Day later this month. All four of us will be at our table, and it'll be a great chance to meet us if you haven't yet. Later that weekend, Art Peritus will be at the Appraiser's Association Annual Conference. Earlier that week, Jen will be showcasing her expertise on the western furniture and decorative arts at TEFAF.
