Flatfile is a collective of private consultants specializing in the Boston art market. We focus on helping consumers and new collectors find quality contemporary art. Flatfile works collaboratively to promotes the work of local and locally trained artists, as well as the efforts of local galleries.
We work to grow the Boston area's contemporary art market by giving greater exposure to local and locally trained artists, by educating potential buyers, and by creating alternative venues and experiences for buying art. We also work individually with private clients to find quality art for their homes and lives. We believe that buying local is essential.
We are passionate about getting artists the support they need to remain working and living in the Boston area. We are equally passionate about helping buyers find what they love, and want them to feel good about buying art and confident in the quality of their purchases.
Please contact us if you would like to learn more about how we work with individual clients..
We have personally viewed and vetted all the artists whose work is represented on our website, and pride ourselves in having collaborative and supportive relationships with local artists, galleries and museums. The aesthetic style of work we show on this site differs, but is unified by the high level of quality and integrity.
