HGA

FINE ARTS

 

HGA Fine Arts is a Fine Art Consulting firm which has been serving clients for over 30 years.  HGA introduces clients to works of art from local, national, and international sources.  We are qualified personal property appraisers and provide appraisals for various purposes such as insurance, estate administration and tax deductible donations. We are professionally trained in appraisal theory, principles, procedures, ethics and law. As art consultants we help executives and private individuals make sound corporate and private art investment decisions and at the same time, provide valuable support to the artistic community.The choice of artworks can make a profound difference in the physical environment, helping to create more aesthetically pleasing surroundings.  We focus on each individual situation, selecting art to reflect the desired "corporate image" or "personal image", to compliment the interior design, and to keep within the specific art budget.  We act discreetly in the resale of individual works of art on behalf of corporate and private individuals.  Because we are independent and are not affiliated with any gallery, nor represent any artist, we are able to provide the widest possible exposure to both acquisition and disposition opportunities.

 

Christine Griffiths has over 10 years of experience in the arts in Canada, including working for the Art Gallery of Ontario; Helen Griffiths & Associates, Fine Arts; Creative Spirit Art Centre; KATI; And, Gallery 133.

She is passionate about the arts and its place in society. 

 

 

Helen Griffiths holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Toronto.  In addition to being an art consultant for over 30 years for private and corporate collectors, Helen Griffiths is also a certified art appraiser and curator for a select group of public company collections.  Helen has been a member of the Board of Directors of the Public Art Gallery at Harbourfront, the Power Plant, and a member of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Art Foundation, whose primary endeavor is the publishing of “Canadian Art”, Canada’s leading visual arts magazine.  She was involved in helping to organize the Toronto International Art Fair, Canada’s premier fine art fair for modern and contemporary art.
