On Cultivating Relationships: an Interview with Elizabeth K. Garvey, Co-founder and Director of Garvey|Simon

Tuesday, August 20th, 2019

Elizabeth K. Garvey is the Co-Founder and Director of Garvey|Simon. Prior to its establishment in 2010, Liz was the President and Owner of EKG Art Advisory (1999-2009), and Co-Director of Schmidt-Bingham Gallery (1989-1998). She is also a member of Art Table, a professional organization dedicated to advancing the leadership of women in the visual arts, as well as a founding member of the New York chapter of the Association of Women Art Dealers. Throughout her career, Liz has placed herself at the forefront of business and social advancements, leveraging her experience to further the progress of the fine arts industry. http://www.garveysimon.com/

Garvey|Simon’s contemporary exhibition program focuses primarily on works on paper. Though the roster ranges from hyperrealist to abstract, the artists are unified by their use of unusual materials and meticulous methodology. This interest in circumventing the norm lies at the core of Garvey|Simon’s business mission. Established with the intent of extending the reach of the New York art scene, Garvey|Simon began with a series of pop-ups in New York and the Midwest. Liz is constantly looking to identify and expand into alternative markets and collaborate with other seasoned dealers and galleries.  Liz is also very active in the secondary market, assisting clients to sell their work privately and with discretion.

Liz assists collectors nationwide as a private curator to establish and build art collections. She is always thrilled to help individuals purchase their first piece of fine art. Her approach is grounded, offering clients a relaxed entry into the New York art world. 

Other services include: collection and database management, appraisals, framing, artist coaching, online platform consultation, and selling on the secondary market.
