Founded in 2006, Ariel Meyerowitz Art Advisory specializes in 20th Century vintage and contemporary photography, contemporary painting, works-on-paper and sculpture.
The focus of Ariel Meyerowitz’s art advisory is to counsel novice and experienced collectors as well as companies on starting or expanding collections through a process of education, presentation, and acquisition. With visits to artists’ studios, galleries, art fairs and auctions, Ariel helps the client navigate the often-overwhelming art world and oversees all aspects of acquisition from research, invoicing, framing, installation, shipping to insurance. Ariel has worked in the art community for more than 20 years including owning her eponymous fine art photography gallery, first in SoHo and then Chelsea, from 1999-2005.
From the time her gallery first opened, it garnered a reputation in the critical press as well as the community at large as a respected, up and coming gallery, showcasing both established and emerging photographers. Over its 6 years, the gallery's shows and individual artists were reviewed or highlighted regularly in national newspapers and magazines culminating in over 100 reviews. In addition to print coverage, the gallery and various artists were frequently profiled on major local and national news networks and radio programs.
Ariel got her start in 1992 as an intern at the Friends Of Photography/Ansel Adams Center in San Francisco, wrote bi-monthly art reviews for a local San Francisco newspaper while working as the Director of the Scott Nichols Gallery. In 1995, Ariel returned to New York City to become the Associate Director of James Danziger Gallery through 1999.
Ariel is the daughter of photographer, Joel Meyerowitz and artist, Vivian Bower. She was born and raised in New York City and now lives in Brooklyn with her husband and daughter.
