“Pear and Tangerine” 🍐🍊by James Del Grosso enjoys the spotlight above the fireplace in a living room that is cozy in the winter and bright in the summer! The moon gold frame really brings out the sophisticated palette and composition.

What a night!! A night of so many celebrations. Art! Culture! Community! Friendship! Creativity! Love! The @decordova_museum Party for the Sculpture Park was a night we will always remember for so many reasons, but mostly it’s how art fosters conversation and shared experiences that we have all missed SO MUCH. Thank you to my incredible co-Chair in life @allie.powell, Honorary Chair @jeffrune, Host Committee, performers, friends, team of curators at the deCordova and @thetrustees staff. #decordova #decordovamuseum #decordovasculpturepark #contemporaryart #performance #sculpture #installation #gala #fundraiser #fundraiserevent

@lilahaubrey holding up some work at a client visit yesterday. We brought 2 (!) cars full of artwork for our client to view in person. It makes such a difference to see the pieces in the space and really helps our clients make decisions. Can’t wait to share what was selected once everything is framed and installed. #artadvisory #artadvisor #artcollector #fineart #contemporaryart #diningroom #livingroomdecor #painting

As the first thing my client sees when they come downstairs, the artwork in this spot needed to set the tone for the day as well as the whole house — it is also the first thing you see when you walk through the front door. An interest in surrealism and magical realism led us to Adam Thomas’s painting Sterling Express. Lovingly nicknamed “Bubble Bird” by the owners, it now greets everyone who comes into the home. @dkcontemporarygallery #contemporaryart #fineart #surrealism #magicalrealism #livingwithart #entrywaydecor #entryway

Over the next few days I’m going to be sharing images from a special installation we did this week for a special client. This regal Kingfisher painting on paper by @shelleyreedart proudly sits at the head of the table in our client’s dining room. The large sheet and negative space in the composition is as important as the masterfully painted bird. It’s striking in its simplicity, which is what makes it so successful. We were originally brought in to work on another space, but through our conversations and process to find the perfect work we ended up placing four works in this beautiful home on Cape Cod. Can’t wait to share the rest! Thank you to @lilahaubrey for overseeing the install 🖼 #kingfisher #painting #fineart #shelleyreed #shelleyreedart #contemporaryart #diningroom #diningroomdecor #livingwithart

The large scale photograph “Palazzo del Te, Mantua” by @david_burdeny is part of a series that presents the grand interiors of Italy’s historic buildings. The room, finished between 1532 and 1535, tells the story of the Fall of the Giants, taken from Ovid’s Metamorphoses. Zoom in on the lower right of the image which anchors the viewer in the space and provides a glimpse of further rooms along a corridor. I can’t wait to hear about the dinner conversations this image initiates in my client’s dining room #photography #fineart #fineartphotography #davidburdeny #mantua #italy #ovid #olympians #greek #greekmythology

“Standing Water” by @jenny_christy feels like it was made for my client’s seaside home. We were looking for scale, but also didn’t want to overwhelm the incredibly serene space. Jennifer Christy’s compositions are the result of years of observation. Having lived on Martha’s Vineyard since she was a young child she has investigated the shorelines and inlets, the edges where water and land meet. She looks at the places where rocks and water or land come up against one another. #fineart #contemporaryart #landscape #landscapepainting #abstractart #abstraction #livingwithart #livingroom #seashore #seaside #beachhouse @fieldgallery

It’s been challenging to see artwork over the last year, so I’m grateful to galleries for shipping works to me for client projects. This @nirhod came from @gavlakgallery for a client meeting. I popped it up on my wall so I could get a sense of the scale and reflective quality. Titled “The Life We Left Behind” this tondo is oil painting under chromed canvas. The chrome application is signature to Nir Hod’s work, which aims to create a mirrored effect, enabling the viewer to be seen and complete the work. You can spot my husband’s visage in the first image and a selfie from me in the second. #contemporaryart #fineart #nirhod #nirhodartist #reflection #tondo #mirror #chrome #canvaspainting

It’s spring in a frame when looking at this photo-realistic watercolor of peonies by @heidilangart. She captures every home gardner who has just snipped a few blooms and plopped them into water filled Ball jars. Can’t wait for peony season!When thinking about framing and installing watercolors, UV plexi is a must. In this case, the windows on the adjacent wall also have UV filters to ensure that there isn’t fading over time. @fieldgallery #peonies #watercolor #watercolorpainting #realism #flowers #photorealism #photorealistic #stilllife #flowerarrangement

Happy Friday! We just installed @annesalas_artist painting, which has completely transformed this foyer and landing. Salas’s botanical oil paintings meld depths of dimensionality with planes of saturated colors. What I really enjoy is seeing how the shapes that create the red Physostegia compliment the elaborately carved newel posts @fieldgallery #contemporaryart #fineart #botanicalart #painting #livingwithart

A sparkling weekend away @massmoca enjoying Spencer Finch’s “Cosmic Latte” light installation. For those who have never visited MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA it is one of the largest Contemporary art museums in the US. With more than 200,000 square feet of exhibition space, including a single gallery as long as a football field, it’s the ideal place to bring art lovers of all ages. We definitely got our steps in (see stories). #massmoca #contemporaryart #fineart #museums #spencerfinch #arttravel

Fun mail morning checking out the latest @bostonglobemag that features a beautiful home designed by @acamporainteriors and a lovely art collection I helped the family put together! Garrett was especially excited to find the cows and blue sky in the photos. Thank you @stylecarrot for capturing the feeling of the place in words and @jessicadelaneyphotography for your photography.

There is nothing better than doing something you love while collaborating with a team that you love. @acamporainteriors and I have know each other for 14 (!!!) years since our days @christiesedu together. I’ve had the joy of working with her on the most amazing client projects and we are thrilled that this Wellesley family home is featured in the @bostonglobe magazine. It’s online now and will be in print on Sunday. Article in my bio and stories! 📰🖼🛋❤️ #artconsultant #fineart #livingwithart #familyhome #interiordesign #wellesley #contemporaryart

I recorded a podcast today with @acamporainteriors and the first question she asked me is “What is an art advisor?” which made me think it’s a good time to share this video I shot with @studiodylan about my advisory practice!

Second installation of 2021! So excited to hang this fantastic painting by @wilhelmneusser titled “Bog/White Cloud” from @abigailogilvy. When selecting this work, we loved the connection to cranberry bogs around New England as well as the striking landscape, particularly the sky. For Neusser, “A landscape painting is a metaphorical space that invites the eye and mind to wander and wonder and for the viewer to project.” Swipe to see the drip details where the artist puts the painting on the ground and in a Pollock-esque way, flicks his paintbrush to paint droplets onto the canvas, adding a layer of texture. #sowaboston #bostonartgallery #wilhelmneusser #landscapepainting #fineart #contemporaryart #contemporarypainting #livingroomdecor #livingwithart #artadvisor #artadvisory
