Feheley Fine Arts is a leading authority in the evaluation of Inuit Art. The gallery is qualified to provide substantiated appraisals that include all the required elements when assigning fair market value to Inuit art. Our appraisal services include insurance and estate valuations as well as the rigorous requirements for appraisals prepared for the Canadian Cultural Properties Export Review Board. (CCPERB).
The gallery is a perfect venue for both large and small gatherings. We have expert event planning associates and a proven track record of successful gatherings ranging from sit-down dinner parties for 26 to receptions for 60-80 people. Our unique space also has an excellent audio system and a large section that can be curtained for video presentation. Past events at Feheley Fine Arts include fundraising events for charitable groups, client appreciation evenings, private parties, CD releases, musical performances and film and photo shoots.
Feheley Fine Arts offers a range of services for corporate gifting. For retirement gifts, incentive promotions, or to celebrate a merger or IPO, the gallery provides customized services. These services include sourcing graphics or sculptures and providing framing or mounting with commemorative plaques and support materials. In the case of incentive presentations or multiple gifts at different levels, the gallery assembles groups of original works that are similar in nature and worth, tailored to different value levels. We also offer packing and shipping services if the works of art are destined for a location outside Toronto.
Our collection management services consist of many activities from the initial catalogue stages of physical inventory, to research and documentation, insurance requirements, framing and installation, plus assistance with display systems, museum mounting, lighting, and finally, conservation and restoration. The gallery has developed proprietary software for collection management and can also provide continuous updates on insurance as market conditions fluctuate. Feheley Fine Arts has worked with many private and public collections to start or build their collections, leading to an intimate knowledge of the intricacies involved in managing the works of art.
The gallery offers educational tours and talks for companies, non-profit organizations and school groups. Topics range from Inuit history and traditional life in the North to artistic trends in Inuit art and in-depth discussions of the career of individual artists. Our extensive research library and archive facilities are frequently made available to researchers. Pat Feheley has been invited to speak to numerous institutions and public audiences, including the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Royal Ontario Museum, the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, the International Society of Appraisers, the Toronto Conference, the University of Toronto and OCAD University.
