First things first, do you have any idea on what an art gallery is?
For those who do not possess in-depth understanding on the role of art gallery – it is a space where different art forms are presented to public for viewing. Paintings, drawings, photography, sculptures, pottery, relics, jewelries with historical value, ancient manuscripts and archeological artifacts are some art forms that can be seen in a particular art gallery.
Art galleries exhibit art works not just to recognize and appreciate talented artists but also to help art buyers in purchasing art work that will suit their art preferences. Art consultants of a gallery may also provide assistance to those looking for a certain piece of art that interest them even if it is not in the gallery.
In some cases, art works displayed are not directly owned by the gallery but consigned to them by the artists or the owner of the artwork. This means that the artwork is loaned to a gallery for display and potential sale. This type of agreement doesn’t involve money on both sides (gallery owner and seller), not until the consigned piece is bought by a client.
One thing artists want to achieve is to have their art displayed in an art gallery and make them sellable. Hawkfield Gallery relieves artists of the need to do advertising of their works. Their website provides a list of artist they represent and they even encourage other artists to present their artworks for evaluation.
A person with knowledge in the gallery business is aware that appraising artworks are a delicate process. The very nature of price building in art is subjective to the current trends in the market. Art consultants and experts uses comparative sales approach by applying current auction sales as the basis for pricing art works.

By visiting art auctions and antique shops, the gallery gains knowledge into the quality and value of many different artworks they have collected. This ensures clients that what they see at Hawkfield is not only a broad representation of classic American art but also guaranteed high-quality and in reasonable price.
