Expanded Collection Management Services

expanded collection managementArt Work Fine Art Services is proud to announce an expansion of our collection management services. Earlier this year, we welcomed Collections Manager Nathan Inwood to the team to lead storage and collections initiatives for our clients. He has more than 25 years of experience and a diverse portfolio of relocation and management projects for private collectors.

In addition to a dedicated collections manager, our expanded services include private viewing rooms and extensive conditions notes.

Comprehensive Collection Management Services

Art Work FAS offers services for private collectors seeking management of their art collections. Our team of art professionals provides custom packaging for storage, relocation and transportation, and the preservation of fine artwork.

Bespoke Crating for Storage and Relocation

We offer custom packaging and crating, even for collections not stored in the Art Work Fine Art Services storage facilities. Our onsite consultations ensure the best packing, soft-wrapping, and crating strategy for private collections. We offer several warehouse locations to provide safe and stable storage of our clients’ pieces, with custom shelving and racks to ensure artwork is preserved to museum standards.

White Glove Relocation of Private Art Pieces

We handle all the transportation of art pieces from our storage facility or relocation from a client’s possession. When artwork needs to be relocated to an exhibit or is sold to a buyer, our team will pack and deliver the art. Any time a client’s assets leave our secure facility, we track the shipment in great detail to confirm that the assets return or are delivered successfully at the intended location. 

Careful Preservation of Private Art Pieces

Art Work FAS is a resource for private collectors through our network of art professionals in conservation and restoration. Throughout the Pacific Northwest, we have maintained partnerships that clients can leverage for the restoration and preservation of valuable private pieces. 

New Expanded Collection Management Services

To better serve private collectors, we’ve expanded our range of collection management offerings with three new initiatives.

A Dedicated Collection Manager

Our dedicated Collections Manager, Nathan Inwood, is dedicated to overseeing collections and will act as the liaison between clients and Art Work FAS. With help from the team, Nathan will leverage Art Work FAS’ art industry network to meet clients’ needs, including connecting them with designers, consultants, installers, restorers, preservators, and insurers.

Clients looking to acquire pieces or handle the deaccession of a collection can discuss options with Nathan. Whether a portfolio centers around a specific artist, style, region, medium, or movement – or is a diverse collection of prized pieces, our team will locate a specialist perfect for the collection in our vast network. If you would like to identify your style or make investments for personal or financial benefit, our Collections Manager can introduce you to a consultant who can help.

We are a resource for collectors and act as a matchmaker for clients and art industry professionals through an extensive network around the Pacific Northwest and across the country. 

Secure and Private Viewing Rooms

Private collectors can view their assets at any time in our newest facility opening in Seattle. We have constructed enclosed rooms to expand our breadth of warehouse services so that clients can now view their artwork with peace of mind. The new viewing rooms protect private collectors and their collections by providing a safe space when withdrawing or viewing artwork. They also provide privacy for services, such as preservation, allowing hired professionals to come in and complete the work without interruption.

Viewing rooms are located within our Seattle warehouse, meaning assets do not need to leave the site for viewing. Each Art Work FAS storage warehouse is perfectly controlled for temperature and humidity. Private collectors are assured that their pieces are protected from theft, fire, flooding, and heat. 

Art collections are monitored 24/7 with alarm system monitoring and response by an elite security team. Collections are guarded through video surveillance, smoke detection, and fire suppression systems.
