From managing the care and logistics of re-installing an existing modest art collection to execution of large-scale civic projects, Trish Clark brings her sensitive eye, completely impartial client-centred advice, and expert teams of trusted contractors to every project.

Distinct from her art gallery ownership, Trish has decades of significant curatorial, consulting and art advisory experience in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. Dedicated to excellence, she offers independent expert consultancy across the full range of activities, including art advice, acquisition and de-accession, framing, conservation, full collection management, full technical installation, international freight, and insurance valuations. 

Trish's demonstrable specialist knowledge, international experience and networks, and proven long-term qualitative judgments since 1980 have assisted many dozens of clients, large and small. These include rationalising and developing significant corporate art collections for Russell McVeagh, PWC and Bell Gully over multiple decades; building art collections with key private clientele over multiple decades; and shorter-term project services to an extensive private and corporate clientele, including Mansons, The Northern Club, Robertson Lodges, SAP, Sheffield Consulting, Diocesan School for Girls, Dexus, and other.

She has held the following formal roles: appointed as founding Director to establish and then lead the Möet & Chandon New Zealand Art Foundation (1988-1997); appointed to the founding Advisory Board for Auckland University’s Centre for Projects in the Arts; appointed to and then elected Chair of Auckland Council’s Advisory Panel for Public Art from 2009-2013; appointed to and sat on the Trust Board of New Zealand Maritime Museum 2008-2018, working towards transformational change to achieve a sustainable future for the Museum. 

Trish has also authored and produced a number of private books on art collections; was commissioned in 2011 by Penguin to produce Journey, a collaboration with Pippa Blake to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Sir Peter Blake's death; co-edited Alan Miller New Zealand Photographs, 2010; and co-edited with Professor Wystan Curnow, Pleasures and Dangers: Artists of the Nineties, Longmans, 1991.
