Art Consultant Artist
An insider talk about life in marketing art in the modern era where millions of dollars from Russian launderers or Chinese nouveau super riche might otherwise drown out the once ruling early stage of young buyers forming their taste by scoring bargain works from up and coming artists whose names are not yet household in the investor galleries, by a one time artist who knows how to make things herself from her early days and now advises those same early generation buyers and she says is no longer ashamed as she once was of not being first a scholar, but is instead a hands on graduate and therefore good guide to acquisitions based on taste and understanding and not on the monetary standards used by those who appreciate the price of everything but the value of very little.
Curator and art advisor, Elizabeth Sadoff introduced mid career artists like Sys Solomon, Al Copley, and Dan Christensen to prospective collectors. She is currently staging work in the Woolworths Building downtown.
As a child, Sadoff’s parents, deeply involved in the architecture and design community of Los Angeles, California encouraged her to study art. She was an apprentice to a sculptor in L.A. from ages 12 to 18 and was carving stone at 14. Later, Sadoff held an stone-carving apprenticeship with two artisans in Pietrasanta, Italy. Her studio practice branched out into bronze casting, welding, mural painting and finally printmaking.
In 1999, Sadoff created a successful New York mural and decorative painting company, which seven years later morphed into FindAMuralist, a nationwide referral service for muralists and decorative painters. From 2004 to 2009 she was director of two small galleries in Santa Monica, California, as well as head of corporate art development for the David Findlay Jr. Gallery in New York.
Sadoff is a member of ArtTable. As co-chair for Bailey House’s annual auction since 2011, Sadoff helps raise funds to provide permanent housing and other vital services to New Yorkers with HIV/AIDS. She is a member of LMNOP Networking Group and an active member of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) Residential Forum Committee.
