Consulting & Project Management

Mont Art House began as a consulting-based business. The original plan was to meet clients in their homes, learn about their style and preferences, and then source several options to meet their needs. The gallery space was later born out of a desire to show clients pieces in person and to exhibit work by Mont Art House Artist Partners.

 

After three years of trying different styles of pricing and packages, we are pleased to offer our clients what we think is the most straightforward and transparent process yet. More details below, but the to-the-point version is that we charge $95/ hour for our consulting and project management services.*

 

CONSULTING

The consulting process begins with an onsite visit (or virtual visit for our out-of-town clients), which typically lasts around one hour. We are happy to meet directly with homeowners or work alongside interior designers as a contractor.

 

Together we will narrow down your areas of focus, take measurements, look at artwork images together, and brainstorm the kinds of art or artists that you would like to see in your home. We can also help you create a budget based on the type and size of work that you would like to purchase.

 

After the visit, the consultant will research, reach out to galleries/artists, and pull artwork options together that meet the size, style, and budget requirements discussed at the consultation.

 

We ask our clients to give us at least 10 days, depending on the scope of the project, to design and deliver the customized proposal for your home. The document will include several options for each space that you are trying to fill (typically 3-5 options per space). From there, how quickly we execute the proposal is up to you.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Project management differs slightly from consulting and proposals. These “art errands” could include things like:

  • Delivering a piece of artwork to your home (or your client’s home) if you don’t have time to come pick it up from the gallery.
  • Completing a framing project with one of our trusted framers. This can include delivery to/from and help with frame choice.**
  • Helping a homeowner or interior designer place artwork that the client already owns. Some examples: moving to a new home, moving art to an office, or creating a new gallery wall.
  • Executing a custom commission from one of our artist partners. This typically takes 2 hours, which includes coordinating with the artist, creating the agreement, managing the process, and arranging shipping and delivery.
  • Bringing canvases to your home to try them “on approval” in your space.
  • Coordinating a professional art hanging service to install work at your home.**

TRICKS OF THE TRADE

* If the in-home consulting process is more than you are looking for, please feel free to bring pictures and measurements of your home to the gallery. There is absolutely no fee for us to meet you in our gallery space. It would be our pleasure to guide you towards something that is the correct proportion or style for your space without visiting your home.

 

** We are happy to share our favorite local frame shops and art hanger’s contact information with you if you would like to take care of this step yourself. No pressure to go through us!
