Although choosing the right furniture is important, it's not the only thing to consider in designing a space. Artwork can make or break a room, and Patti Gilford understands this. The consultants at Patti Gilford Fine Arts work with clients, architects, and designers to build collections and find the right artwork for any given environment. Clients range from public libraries to high-profile banks to private collectors.
Before opening her own art advisory business, Patti Gilford worked as an artist and gallery director. Her services include art selection, installation, and de-accessioning artworks. Like an interior designer, an art advisor considers what will work for a space, how to build a collection, and what pieces to invest in. From their website: "Our talent for contextualizing art in space is a defining skill."
