“Heidi is the most knowledgeable art advisor I’ve met. She knows her art!”
HLK takes great care to listen to our clients and fully understand their art interests and needs, rather than blindly direct. Once we determine what your goals, tastes and intentions are we collaborate with you to devise a customized strategy within your budget.
We can act on your behalf as well as partner with you to navigate through the entire art acquisition process and help you make the most informed decisions about art. We do everything from sourcing top quality art to curating bespoke exhibitions. Our core advisory services include:
* ART ACQUISITIONS *
HLK provides clients exclusive access to high caliber artists and works of art. Whether it’s an emerging, mid-career or blue chip artist, we carefully research and evaluate each artwork for authenticity, condition, historical value, and provenance. We negotiate the best prices as well as oversee delivery and installation.
* COLLECTION MANAGEMENT *
We use secured software to digitally catalogue art objects and meticulously document all details of each object. We can accurately track collection movements by recording all acquisition details and related information (images, insurance quotes, invoices, etc.). We can also provide extensive research and due diligence as well as conduct maintenance checks.
* EXHIBITION PLANNING *
We curate exhibitions for private and corporate clients in galleries, offices and pop-up spaces.
* DEACCESSIONS *
If you need to sell or simply want to upgrade an artwork, we can advise on sales strategies and charitable donations.
* ART EVALUATIONS *
To stay up to date on what your art is worth, we provide detailed analyses on artist markets and can advise on pricing based on comprehensive data-driven research. We also research artwork titles and can provide materials analysis.
HLK works with a vetted network of art professionals and service providers to provide the best service possible. We also have long standing relationships with art galleries, auction houses, art scholars, conservators, insurance agents, estate planners, tax advisors, framers, and shippers.
