Introduction by Alexander Katlan.
Franklin Hill Perrell is a well-known art historian, curator, and writer. His career at the Nassau County Museum of Art in Roslyn Harbor, New York has spanned over twenty years, culminating in the title of Chief Curator. There, he curated over fifty major exhibitions, including Miro & Calder, Chagall, Picasso, School of Paris, American Realism, Pop & Op, and Surrealism.
After the museum, in 2009, Perrell became the Executive Director of the Roslyn Landmark Society in Long Island, where he was responsible for the historic preservation of over two hundred landmarked houses, as well as the rescue of endangered art and architecture.
In 2013, he co-founded Artful Circle with business partner and Salmagundi Artist Member Debbie Wells, which serves clients in the art community with services including curatorial, catalogue writing, design production and special event programming: lectures, museum and art gallery visits. The most recent guest curatorial project is The Seasons at the Nassau County Museum of Art (Nov 15, 2019-March 1, 2020). Perrell also currently serves on Board of Trustees of the Heckscher Museum and the National Gallery of Bermuda in Hamilton.
