What exactly is an art consultant?

Art consultants are visual storytellers who help clients find and select pieces that meet their aesthetic requirements. They take into account a client’s needs, budget, and values to curate highly relevant options that improve the ambiance of a business or private home.

They strive to personalize their art in order to complement their clients’ specific tastes and to create a visually appealing identity.

Art consultants work to procure and install artwork as well as handle negotiations between art dealers and curators. The role that art consultants play makes them valuable to artists looking to advance their careers and gain market visibility.

What to Look for When Choosing an Art Consultant

You can benefit from the well-trained advice of an art consultant whether you are an individual, a business, or an artist. Consider the following characteristics when looking for an art consultant:

Location

Location is one of the most important factors to consider when looking for an art consultant. You don’t want to spend hours searching for the ideal consultant only to discover he lives too far away to visit you or your company.

The only time you should consider hiring a remote consultant is when you are curating an exhibit for a country in which you do not reside.

Reputation

Obviously, you want to work with someone who is dependable and trustworthy. Do your homework before hiring a new art consultant.  Look into their background, read reviews, and look at recommendations. The vast majority of art consultants have a bachelor’s degree in art or art history.

Style

What has this consultant previously worked on? Is their style compatible with what you’re looking for? Although art consultants can work in a variety of styles, if you can find one who has previously displayed work in your niche, you’ll be much more confident in their ability to meet your needs.

Clientele

Does the consultant have a large number of private or corporate clients? Some consultants will keep their client list private, but if you have access to it, think about the types of clients they have worked with. Perhaps the consultant prefers to work with businesses and is less likely to respond to individuals.

Budget

When hiring an art consultant, the budget may be the deciding factor. When discussing options in person, compare prices online and be honest about your budget. If your top choice is out of your price range, try to bargain. Always have a second or third option available.
