Hodges Taylor Art Consultancy has been a major force in the Charlotte art scene for over thirty years. During that time, they have championed artists of our region and placed their work into important private and corporate collections. The company has recently been invigorated by the addition of Lauren Harkey as a new partner. Harkey is trained as an art historian and lawyer and worked at a family law firm before returning to the arts. She also serves as Vice President on the board of the Young Affiliates of the Mint (who are about to close applications for their summer juried show – apply here). They have some exciting news to share with us; read Harkey’s words below:
Hodges Taylor Art Consultancy is moving downstairs in Dilworth Artisan Station into the former home of Anne Neilson Fine Art. Dot Hodges and Christie Taylor founded Hodges Taylor Gallery in 1980. In 2011, Hodges Taylor became a consulting firm specializing in placing artwork that aligns with a client’s vision, through working with artists or their galleries, rather than representing artists.
In addition to consulting services for public and private collectors, Hodges Taylor will curate and host exhibitions and associated events in its office and gallery space. The new location will open mid March with additional opening hours and a solo exhibition featuring Elizabeth Alexander entitled, “I may not be a lion”, will open on April 7th.
