Clifford Eberly

As a recent transplant to Los Angeles, Cliff became an avid hiker so he could physically and visually understand the lay of the Southland. Grad school brought him here in 2010 from Central PA Amish country to study and to make art. During the program, Cliff realized that he likes to read theory almost as much as he likes to paint abstractions or assemble sculptures. Thus, he has set his course to document contemporary exhibitions and artists of which people should know more.

Cori Nelson

Cori Clark Nelson is an actress and writer getting it done from her Los Feliz carriage house. After stints in Atlanta, Chicago and NYC, she has proudly called LA home for seven years. Give her an LA hour (like a New York minute but, seriously, what’s the rush, it’s gorgeous out) and she will have you agreeing that LA is the most accessible city around. A perfect LA day would include coffee and a coyote sighting in Griffith Park, thrifting at the Rose Bowl, oysters and beer at The Reel Inn followed by a show at The Troubadour.

Paul Des Marais

Paul Des Marais was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, and moved to Los Angeles on a whim in 2010. As in Baltimore, the pothole-laden city streets bend his bicycle rims, but he’s committed to biking every mile of LA. Unlike the east coast, the Los Angeles climate lets him grow all kinds of vegetables year round. He likes gardening at night with a headlamp because it’s easier to spot the weeds. He writes and edits the catalogue and blog for the Los Angeles Modern Auctions, an auction house specializing in contemporary art and mid-century modern design. He’s pretty knowledgeable when it comes to bad music, infomercials, and Scandinavian licorice, and he’s always looking to teach people how to disc golf.
