art consultants


Does anyone have a link to reputable art consultants? I was contacted by one in Canada called Farmboy Fine arts, but I have no idea if they're legit. Anyone heard of them, or worked with them?

  Wellllllllllllllllllllllllll, you could ask if they're members in any professional organization like :
http://www.aspp.com/ That's the American Society of Picture Professionals, whose members rep photographers and buy and sell art work. Or try http://www.spar.org/ The society of Photographers and Artists Representatives, that rep photographers.

To determine whether they're really legit, talk to them, don't e-mail them. Get some references in the U.S. and Canada, professional references like vendors and photographers and talk to them, then go from there.
Take it light.

  Thanks, I'm not looking for an art rep, bu a consultant that sells your work into the hospitality industry.

  Ohhhhhhh, you mean like people or firms that BUY and SELL art work (including to the hospitality industries, among other industries) like ASPP and SPAR. What the professional associations you belong to? Can't they help you determine who's a legit art dealer/consultant? Why don't you just contact the people listed on your web page. Seems like they would know.
Good luck Mary.

Answering the age old question: "Why is the sea so salty?" Because it's filled with smelt herring.
