Ron Shipmon LLC is an art advisory firm specializing in contemporary, emerging, and digital art markets.  To our private, corporate, and not-for-profit clients, we bring an art network that encompasses artists, auction houses, national and international dealers, and major galleries, as well as expertise deeply rooted in conducting discreet negotiations. While always striving to meet the aesthetic and financial parameters of our global clientele, we seek to simultaneously curate a bespoke art program tailored to each of our clients’ even most far-reaching needs.



We evaluate artwork based on various factors, including the artist’s reputation, the condition of the artwork, and its historical significance. We use our 30 years in the business to inform our careful analysis of each object.


Our appraisals consider factors such as the artist’s bona fides, the style and period of the artwork, recent gallery and auction records and dealer sales of comparable works. 


During the inspection process, we physically examine the artwork to assess its condition, authenticity, and provenance.


Upon completion of research and analysis, we assemble a detailed written appraisal report that outlines the artworks’ value and the factors that contributed to the appraisal outcome.




We provide expert guidance on the acquisition, valuation, building, management, and installation of art collections that align with our clients’ tastes, budgets, and investment goals. In navigating the complex art market, we assist clients in making informed decisions about buying, selling, and collecting art. Upon identifying artworks that fit our clients’ specific criteria, we analyze the artwork’s condition, value the piece(s), negotiate prices and terms, and oversee the entire purchase process.



For clients with existing art collections, we research, select, organize, present, and create a cohesive, engaging art program that tells a story. The result is a body of work that fits our client’s needs and resonates with the curatorial philosophy. Through our collections management we provide guidance on care and conservation and, we provide technical advice that ensures the longevity of artwork in each collection.
