Brokerage Opportunities with the Strand Center for the Arts
The Strand Center for the Arts is always available as a resource to businesses and personal buyers as a broker to manage their artistic purchases. A broker is an agent who buys or sells for a principal on a commission basis without having title to the property. The Strand Center for the Arts is available in this manner to manage the collection of specific artwork and its sale for area businesses and personal buyers. The Strand Arts Center has worked with The Foundation of Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital in this capacity to secure regional art for the hospital and improve the experience of both patients and visitors. As targeted floors of the hospital were being remodeled to enhance patient care, their art collection was updated as well. The Foundation requested a specific type of artwork and purchases were tailored to meet their requirements. Please see the specifics of these brokerages below.
For more information on brokerage opportunities please contact the Gallery Director, David Monette, by email at email@example.com, by phone at 518-563-1604 or in person at the Strand Center for the Arts at 23 Brinkerhoff Street in Plattsburgh, NY.

March 2015 | Foundation of CVPH Brokerage 2 | Floors R5 & R6
UVM Health Network – Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital and The Foundation of Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital have partnered with the Strand Center for the Arts to secure regional art for the hospital and improve the experience of both patients and visitors. Over the last year UVM Health Network – CVPH and The Foundation have worked with the Strand Arts Center to broker artwork purchases from local artists and galleries. This second selection focused on floors R5, the Oncology Recovery Floor, and R6, the Orthopedics Recovery Floor. Each floor now features curated artwork based on a specific theme. The theme for R5 is abstract art and purchased artwork will be displayed with work previously donated to R5 by patients and their families. The theme for R6 is outdoor recreation, which compliments their new Joint Care Center’s hiking theme.
Twenty pieces of artwork were purchased from 19 local artists to be installed on R5 and R6 in the hospital. Submissions were collected by the Strand Arts Center through a “call to artists” and purchases were decided through a series of meetings with The Foundation of CVPH staff. All of the artists selected for purchase reside locally in New York State.
