Fredrick N. Page
Fred has been evaluating and collecting art for over three decades. After working as an auctioneer in Washington D. C., he came to Los Angeles in 1979 to work at Sotheby’s as an appraiser, and started his own firm in 1985. Since then he’s been serving enthusiastic art collectors of all kinds, concentrating on clients in the film and entertainment industries. He prepares appraisals for insurance, divorce and estate settlements, and provides collateral support for lending institutions. He often advises his clients on art sales and acquisitions, and supports their museum donations.
Ten years ago Page Art, Inc. opened offices in Corona Del Mar in Newport Beach so Fred could watch those amazing Pacific Coast sunsets from his desk and easily reach clients throughout Southern California. Fred also sits on the Laguna Beach Art Museum’s Collections Committee, and was a Trustee of the Museum in 2006-2008.
In 2015 Page Art, Inc. took on a new partner, Floy Andrews, who has expanded the business into the San Francisco Bay Area, with a new base in the Uptown Oakland arts district.
Fred is the father of two beautiful adult kids who may join the business someday, and pals around with his funny little dog named Timon aka “Mr. T”. When he’s not looking at client’s artwork, he’s visiting an art museum or gallery, or climbing a local mountain with the Sierra Club.
Floy’s been engaged with California Art since she opened a small Gallery in Silverlake, Los Angeles, in the mid-1980s, showing young artists emerging on the vibrant LA Art scene. Although she closed the gallery to study law, she remained a collector and enthusiast throughout her diverse legal career, which began with the top-tier international law firms, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher and O’Melveny & Myers and concluded as VP with California’s largest real estate development and investment company, The Irvine Company in Newport Beach. She’s been a litigator, transactional attorney, corporate advisor, and dealmaker. Now a Partner with Page Art, Inc., she’s focusing her legal and business skills on what’s always most inspired her: the Art world — from artists and their work, to collectors with collections of all sizes, to dealers, gallerists, museums, insurers, and lenders. It’s all fascinating to Floy.
She’s based in the growing arts district in Uptown Oakland and spearheads Page Art’s expansion into the Bay Area. She and Fred work closely for Page Art clients throughout California and beyond. Floy is also a longtime yoga and mindfulness meditation practitioner.
