Art Central is open for businessFebruary 1, 2016
Art Central, Crown’s new purpose-built facility close to Central London not only provides secure storage but also acts as a gallery extension for clients who want to sell their art.
Located just five minutes from Central London, the facility opened its doors in September 2015.
As well as having “bonded” customs status, Art Central features modern extras that could change the face of art storage. These include private client rooms, viewing rooms, client work areas, meeting rooms and a photography room.
The emphasis will be on both keeping art safe and secure – thanks to full temperature and humidity control, inside secure loading and managed secure storage – and on providing a place where art can be viewed and sold.
David Preston, General Manager at Crown Fine Art, said: “It is an exciting concept that is already being very well received. We believe clients will increasingly see our warehouse not just as somewhere to store art but as a “gallery extension” - somewhere where they can invite potential buyers to come and view and buy art.
“The location is key, close to Overground and Underground stations and convenient for Battersea, Kensington and Chelsea as well as the gallery districts of Mayfair and St James’s. The art handling sector has needed a facility like this for a long time and our patience in waiting for a suitable location has really paid off. We believe Art Central provides the best and most convenient services in the sector and will be a real boost for our clients.”
