Why we exist is because the Art Counsel is passionate about breaking down the barriers of the art world. It is not an easy place to navigate. Whether you find it intimidating, overwhelming, out of reach, or a time sink you can't afford, we love simplifying it for you, to enable you to have fine art in your life, without battling the art world.
Art is the pinnacle of the creative mind and a joy to have in your life. Wonderfully, New Zealand art punches well above its weight and we are proud to work with artists and collectors to celebrate this.
Breaking down these barriers also means getting you closer to the artists, directly. Whether through our video series, bringing you into the artists' studios, or getting you into the artists' studios yourselves.
Whether you are looking for your first artwork, are a seasoned collector needing advice on what next, or have too many works in your collection and need breathing room, we can help.
