Fine Art Collector is a proudly Canadian owned art gallery devoted solely to Canadian fine art.

FineArtCollector.ca represents an alternative way to buy, sell, consign and collect Canadian art. Most of the available art is sold on consignment for owners.

The gallery was launched by a pair of Ontario-based art lovers and art collectors with an interest in Canadian art: Clayton Kenyon and Mark Skeffington.

The gallery is now owned by FineArtCollector Ltd. and operated by Mark Skeffington.

Fine Art Collector believes original art should be accessible to everyone – art lovers of all kinds, from first-time buyers to longtime collectors.

Buying art

Shopping for and buying art can be intimidating.

Walking into an art gallery to view and buy art can be intimidating. The sale price for an artwork is rarely displayed, and some people are understandably hesitant to ask. When someone does ask the price, they are sometimes taken aback.

Buying Canadian art at auction, whether through live or online auctions, can also be intimidating. You need to keep in mind that there will be a buyers premium tacked on top of any amount you bid – up to 25% in some cases. It’s possible you’ll get caught up in a bidding war with other bidders. The price you end up paying may be substantially more than what you set out to pay or more than the artwork is worth.

Selling art

Selling art can also be intimidating.

An art owner can feel bewildered by the many avenues to sell art, whether they want to sell one artwork or a larger Estate collection that’s been inherited. Sellers may not have the time to compare all the options, their costs and legal terms. If someone opts to sell through an art auction company, a seller may face high consignment fees – of up to 25% in some cases – plus other expenses.

Buying and selling art doesn’t have to be so intimidating.

FineArtCollector.ca takes the fear factor out of buying, selling or consigning Canadian art.
