Our Team: Passion + creativity + experience
Kimberly Kent, Art Broker
Kimberly operates and manages an art brokerage service based in Portland, Oregon for projects ranging from large institutional and health care installations to multi-family common areas and office lobbies.
She work closely with clients, owners, and project designers to select original artworks and/or prints that reflect owner and client preferences, complement the architectural and interior design and use of the space, and adhere to the project budget. She does not represent individual artists, which allows her to fully focus on the needs of her clients and their projects.
She has worked in the art community for over 25 years, and takes full advantage of her extensive local, national, and international network to identify or commission the right pieces of art for the aesthetic that clients aim to achieve.
Devin Culbertson, Industry Advisor
I was born in Portland, and despite living in Hawaii, Austin, and Seattle, my path has always wound back to the Willamette Valley. I enjoy Sailing, tinkering with improvements on my 110-year-old house and generally learning new things and wrestling with new challenges. My academic background is in Sociology and Urban Planning, but I've worked in real estate as a developer, analyst, and advisor for the last 12 years.
I work with Kimberly's team to bring my experience with commercial real estate and project management to the ever-increasing complexity of her projects. As her clients trust her with new branding and procurement challenges, we collaborate on strategy and systems to smoothly manage artists, vendors, client selection committees, third-party contractors and tight schedule windows.
