Many CNAA clients seek to purchase museum-quality works of art by historically significant and notable artists that are sold on the market after the initial sale. Through a vast network of art world contacts, CNAA helps clients gain access to important works of art. CNAA assesses the future historical significance of an artist’s work, researches the desirability of a work of art in the context of an artist’s oeuvre, and gathers critical information on the provenance and overall condition of the artwork before making a purchase recommendation. CNAA regularly advises clients wishing to sell artwork into the secondary market, providing guidance though the appropriate channels and means of reaching interested buyers. If necessary, CNAA seeks the advice of professional appraisers and conservators to determine the appropriate market value and condition of the works, and to guide clients on the best strategies to buy or sell.
Unlike many art consultants, CNAA does not restrict itself to referencing a core group of 20 to 30 artists to share with clients. Cheryl Numark is continuously seeking information on available works and artists in the global art market. Highly informed recommendations are provided for clients based on their aesthetic tastes, objectives, and budget.
Cheryl Numark and her staff regularly visit several major U.S. and European art fairs a year, and make frequent visits to New York and Los Angeles art galleries, museums, auction houses, artist studios and private dealers to stay abreast of the vast and ever-changing art market. Regular visits to galleries and museums in Washington, D.C. and continuous research on artists and art world news inform decisions for helping clients to enhance their collections.
