Blanks Art+Auction March issue

"L.A. Storytellers"

For its March issue, "Art+Auction" editor in chief Benjamin Genocchio visits the Pacific Palisades home of husband-and-wife art dealers Wayne and Shoshana Blank, who are now marking their 25th year in business. The Blanks are also longtime collectors, with works by the likes of Barbara Kruger, Ed Ruscha and Joseph Kosuth on the walls. Look for a funny Helmut Newton anecdote early on but zip on the future of Bergamot Station, the Santa Monica arts complex that the Blanks developed in 1994, years before so many galleries found their way to Culver City.
