Founder and Owner
Meredith Darrow is one of the most highly regarded and sought after art advisors working today. She has over 15 years of experience working with collectors, artists, galleries and institutions and over that time has been at the forefront of the increasingly complex and valued contemporary art market.
Meredith has worked with a number of globally recognized collections and is known as a highly influential taste-maker and market shaper. Perhaps most notable among the public collections she advises is the Miami-based de la Cruz collection which she has been advising for the past seven years.

In addition, Meredith works with a number of new and established private collectors of contemporary art to develop and refine world class collections of art that speak to their owners’ tastes and lifestyles. Her deep connections in the realm of contemporary art allow her privileged access to new and secondary market works as well as market intelligence.
