Why do art buyers work with Foto Relevance?

Foto Relevance, LLC, is a for-profit venture that helps organizations or individuals find and acquire photography-based art. Photography-based work can be a traditional work on paper for a collection or made part of an installation.  Following a collector’s interest or an art consultant’s vision for their clients, Foto Relevance reaches into the art market to provide a curated selection of artists. Depending on the buyers requirements, Foto Relevance works with artists, or their representatives, to bring work matching a posted need.

The confidential “Posting Space” at Foto Relevance enables Foto Relevance to define opportunities and match the art buyer’s search requirements. Artists and Foto Relevance understand, in advance, to which mediums and uses the artist is open for their work.  Foto Relevance focuses on contemporary works with open and transparent communications that bring business processes to art.

What services are available for art buyers?

Foto Relevance provides access to a curated database of photography-based images searchable by category or classification to approved art buyers.  Art buyers are those collectors, art consultants or others who have agreed to Foto Relevance’s policies, procedures, terms and conditions.  There is no charge for this access.

There is also the opportunity for Art Buyers to use Foto Relevance’s  confidential “Posting Space” to provide a description of an opportunity.  Foto Relevance will search, at no cost, its database of artists it represents to assist with matching these artists to the opportunity.  If a possible match is identified, Foto Relevance will facilitate a discussion and/or meeting of the buyer and artist. 

Assisted searches are also available for an agreed fee.  Foto Relevance has worked with many galleries and is glad to search not only within its curated artists that it represents, but also its broader knowledge of available works and its network.

About Artists

We know our artists. The authenticity of a work will be evident in the form of email communication and/or letter from the artist. Each portfolio provides information on the artists and links to other information that may be available about them or their work.

Foto Relevance takes seriously the confidentiality of our clients and information about their interests, collections and inquiries.

Having a registered account allows buyers to request, under different fee arrangements, searches beyond just the artists represented by Foto Relevance. Please contact us through the web form or call 713-325-4461. We look forward to assisting those interested in acquiring and collecting contemporary photography.

What is the cost for shipping, handling and insurance?

Because all photography-based items are custom produced, delivery may take 2 to 4 weeks, and will vary based on the item, the artist’s availability and the shipping destination. Items for installation or unique production may take longer and will require discussion and agreement as to expectations and timing. Shipping costs are determined based on price, weight, dimensions and destination of the art work. An estimate may be provided, but is subject to change until finalized.

Most packages will generally be shipped by a service like FEDEX, although other shippers might be used. Coverage against loss is generally the “Declared Value”, which will be based on the cost of the art in this case. Foto Relevance will arrange for the insurance on shipping of the item, and the cost will be be included in the invoice as part of “Shipping, Handling and Insurance”.  The costs for shipping, handling and insurance will be estimated and discussed with you prior to finalization of the invoice and shipping to be sure the art is packaged and shipped to the appropriate location to arrive safely and securely based on your instructions.

What is the refund or returns policy?

Items offered by Foto Relevance are custom produced and are not subject to refund. Once an item is shipped or installed, the sale cannot be cancelled and is final.
