Candace Worth established Worth Art Advisory in 2001 to bridge the gap between new art collectors and the art world establishment. In the last fifteen years, Worth Art Advisory has developed into a leading, internationally-recognized contemporary art advisory service representing a growing group of diverse art collectors.
Prior to establishing Worth Art Advisory, Worth worked in the Contemporary Art Department at Christie’s auction house, followed by positions at a blue-chip gallery in New York City and an internet-based art consultancy. She has participated in panel discussions and lectures related to the contemporary art market at the Rhode Island School of Design, the Drawing Center, Art Dealers Association of America, and, most recently, at TEDxChelsea.
Worth is a member of the Association of Professional Art Advisors and currently serves on the board of the Drawing Center, the only fine arts institution in the United States to focus solely on the exhibition of drawings. In 2010, she initiated an artist residency program in upstate New York, offering NYC-based artists a unique opportunity to work for extended periods in a spacious, rural environment.
Worth received her bachelor’s degree in Art History from the University of Pennsylvania in 1992 and studied at the graduate school of Art History at Columbia University. Recently acquired works are pictured below.
