“I’ve watched Leslie and Lana’s immaculate work for the last few years,” said Kuper Sotheby’s International Realty President Harry J Kuper. “The quality of art and events they put together and incredible dedication to their projects perfectly aligns with our Sotheby’s brand. Their fresh and creative approach to these events, organization and relationships with emerging creatives from around the world truly makes for an unforgettable and fulfilling experience for everyone involved.” “Using our experience in artist relations, management and curation, we’ve perfected the alliance between art event production and sales,” stated Leslie Gossett. “HOUSE OF L combines engaging programming with a series of events where our art (and often times, our artists) are tangible to our guests. Our concept is further supported by our sophisticated e-commerce platform. By offering original artwork found exclusively on the HOUSE OF L website, we create a community of collectors and emerging artists that will pave the way for future online art sales.”
