FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwired - November 21, 2016) - While art collectors from around the globe travel to South Florida each December for Art Basel and its satellite fairs, transporting the art to Miami is a highly orchestrated process. Bellissima Luxury & Fine Art Services, LLC, which was launched in August by industry leader Susan D. McGregor, works with gallery owners and collectors around the world to safely transport works for art from the point of origin, to the fair, and then onto the purchaser.
This year, Bellissima will work primarily with two very popular fairs: Art Miami and CONTEXT. Behind the scenes, Bellissima plays a critical role as each work undergoes a unique journey made up of multiple steps, culminating in a delighted owner of spectacular art! Bellissima services include:
- Coordinating shipment to the US.
- Navigating the art through U.S. Customs
- Transporting the art work on secured and climate controlled trucks
- Ultra-secure storage in a climate controlled, Category 5 hurricane-rated facility
- Unpacking and installing works of art for gallery clients, at various fairs working with a team of professional art handlers
- Storage for crates
- Breakdown of gallery exhibits once the art fair closes. De-installation, packing, crating.
- Follow up on sales: facilitating shipment and/or installation for new owners.
During the Miami Art Fairs, which run from December 1-4, 2016, hundreds of leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa show significant work from the Masters of Modern and contemporary art, as well as the new generation of emerging stars. Bellissima Luxury & Fine Art Services employs a team of highly skilled and courteous professional art handlers who work around the clock before, during, and after Art Basel week, to ensure total satisfaction of their gallery clients, Art Fair organizers, and private collectors.
"Transporting works of art is a very specialized field that involves mitigation of risks, security, and fastidious planning and execution at every step," said McGregor. "In past years, we have worked closely with gallery owners and art collectors from throughout the U.S., Europe, the Middle East and Asia. This can be a stressful time for our clients, from a logistics perspective, and so we try to make the process as smooth as possible for them. We are already booking for this year's Miami Art Fairs, and we look forward to delivering the five-star Bellissima experience our clients have come to expect and count on."
