Known for a specialty in vintage Haitian art, particularly from the renowned Centre d’Art in Port-au-Prince, ZQ Art is also a connoisseur source for self-taught art from around the world.
We are art people who listen to how collectors want their works sold, while also guiding those who are building collections.
When selling at auction, ZQ Art has a wide roster. Lots can be as varied as 16th century to modern day chess sets, tribal, folk & ethnographic arts, Russian, Old Master and Latin American paintings.
Our attention to detail and archiving is unparalleled among our peers, which allows us to manage all kinds of specialized collections. We see ourselves not only as a primary source for compelling art, but as curators of how art should be presented and sold.
Our expertise has been gained by managing several world class art collections, including those of (Oscar-winning director) Jonathan Demme, Dr. Halvor & Astrid Jaeger, Gloria Frank, Leon Sevilla, Fahimie Marks, and many distinguished collections.
ZQ Art is on several international platforms. For private sales we are an Artsy gallery member. Auctions are held at the global online platforms of Liveauctioneers and Invaluable. Our iOS app allows collectors an interactive experience when bidding online. Using the latest technology, our interactive app includes the option of a pushdown notification to your mobile device minutes before your lot comes up for auction. Download the ZQ Art APP.
ZQ Art participates in art fairs and has curated many educational and cultural shows: including among others the Outsider Art Fair (New York, NY), Slotin Folk Fest (Atlanta, Georgia), Nuit Blanche (Toronto, Canada), Ramapo College (Mawah, NJ), Ontario College of Art and Design, York University and the University of Toronto.
Our founder, Jose Zelaya works closely with collectors, galleries and major museums, offering services that range from collections management, selling strategy, curatorial, framing, to appraisals and conservation.
At ZQ Art we welcome you to the energizing creative force art brings to our lives. Whether it be a singular vision of great insight, or one that brings ideas together creating an art movement.
