How We Work

Dickson Russell works with each client to explore their individual art requirements, whether they wish to acquire a few works or build a permanent collection, update an existing collection, host a programme of changing exhibitions, commission a large-scale work or establish links with an art education institution.

At the outset of each project, we try to gain an understanding of the client's core business and the message they wish to convey, as well as reviewing the building that will be used to display the work.

We believe that well-selected artworks enhance the corporate and domestic environment.

Unlike a gallery, we hold no stock of art, but source work impartially for each project according to the needs and budget of the client.

We are not limited to advising clients solely on contemporary art, but look at historic works in a variety of media.

The consultancy draws on contacts with third parties to provide specialist services, such as restoration, framing, packing, shipping, storage and installation.

All projects are charged on a time basis. Dickson Russell takes no commission on artworks purchased and charges all third-party services at cost. Any trade discounts obtained are passed onto the client in full.
