Elizabeth Sadoff Art Advisory is a Manhattan-based, full-service art advocacy firm. Our advisory brings both new and experienced collectors together with artwork that they would not readily have discovered on their own. When you engage our advisory, we provide you with an art that is a deeply personal reflection of you.
Our Mission is two-fold: promoting the work of emerging and mid-career artists and artists' estates as well as empowering aspiring collectors like you to chart a unique course in the richly rewarding journey of acquiring original artwork. When these two goals meet up, we have accomplished our aim.
Our art selection process begins by showing you a wide range of artwork. This can take several forms: sharing images online, in-person or zoom slideshow presentations, reviewing books, and catalogs. Whatever the form, it is our aim to enrich how you interpret what is presented on-screen or in print.
You need to know details about the artist who made the work, what that work is made of and how it was made. Perhaps it has a historical context that will help you better appreciate it. The more we can bring to your visual experience at this phase, the better you can respond.
The art world is expansive and can seem intimidating. We help you navigate it the way you feel most comfortable. We love setting up guided studio visits with artists and curated gallery tours. These activities enhance your exploratory process and can deeply inform your decision-making process. They are also activities that you may not have elected to engage in on your own. That's why we're here -- to allow you to feel confident in the hands of trusted guides.
There are no strict rules or guidelines regarding any aspect of art or the universe that it inhabits. In a way, working with our clients is an art form itself -- flexible, responsive, and ultimately immensely rewarding. In the end, you should feel the kind of profound satisfaction that an artist feels when he/she has completed a work of art. You may not have made the art, but you connect with the magic it possesses --- the magic that speaks to you!
Elizabeth Sadoff at a studio visit
Originally from Los Angeles, California, I trained as a sculptor, muralist, and, most recently, printmaker. In 1999, I established a successful New York mural and decorative painting company, after which I was the director of two small galleries in Santa Monica, California. I moved back to New York in 2009 to become the Director of Corporate Art Development for the David Findlay Jr. Gallery. It was during the 2008/09 financial meltdown that I realized it was time to go back to business on my own, and established Elizabeth Sadoff Art Advisory, setting up my studio/office in Chelsea. I have never been so happy and engaged as when I began advocating on behalf of the multitude of talent in the art world whose work has the power to resonate with and transform each of us.
Alexa came on board Elizabeth Sadoff Art Advisory in May of 2018, to advance the art advocacy program of ESAA. Over the past three years, Alexa has made a significant difference, bringing her fresh, innovative perspective to the advisory’s further development. Brooklyn born and raised, she graduated from CUNY Brooklyn College with a degree in Art History in June of 2019. Alexa often contemplated where her degree would take her and it was truly serendipitous that she found ESAA. Working for a year as an intern, she came to understand that she was just where she wanted to be--beginning a career as an Art Advisor. While still working with ESAA, Alexa is enrolled at Sotheby’s Institute of Art on track for a Master’s Degree in Art Business.
