Propos d'Art in The Gazette


Obviously a slow news day, Sarah Dougherty writes a fluff profile of Louise Beaudry, and her company Propos d'Art. According to the article she "advises companies and individuals on how to build and display art collections."

A couple of points, I get a big kick out of the reason Ms. Beaudry gives for starting her company - "I was constantly being asked, 'How do I know if something is good?' or, 'How do I avoid paying too much?'"

According to her web site the artists she represents are as follows: Paul Cloutier, Lorraine Dagenais, Monique Danis-Bastien, Élisabeth Dupond, Louise Duval, Suzanne Ferland, Lucie Jolicoeur-Côté, Julianna Joos, Manon Lambert, Jacinthe Tétrault, Diane Trudel and Michel Veltkamp.

Hmmm, advising companies and individuals about art collections while representing artists at the same time, I wonder if she has sold anything other than the artists she represents to BCE, Gaz Metro, Cirque du Soleil and the local law firms that are her clients.

Can you say "conflict of interest?"
