We are growing to better serve our clients! In addition to our art appraisal and cataloging services that has been a cornerstone of our business since 2012, we have expanded our services to now offer art curation, registration, brokerage, conservation and restoration services for our clients and their families. With this expansion into a full service art business, we are excited to announce that Ruffner Appraisals and Consulting is now the Ruffner Art Advisory.

“Typically, these services can only be found in New York City, Los Angeles, and a handful of other world-class cities in the U.S.,” said Elizabeth Ruffner, principal, Ruffner Art Advisory. “We are proud to be based in Chattanooga, TN and provide these unique services to our clientele across the Southeast.”

Art brings so much more to people’s lives than beauty and inspiration. It is an asset and an investment. With more than 20 years of experience in the art industry, we are passionate about helping others build their collections and preserve their wealth with strategies designed to compliment an individual’s financial planning and wealth management services.

Ruffner Art Advisory works with individuals, family offices and estate planning attorneys to help our clients create a collection of art that is as beautiful as it is valuable. Our experience brings connections, knowledge and discretion to our client’s art investment collections. We assist with buying, selling and representation at auctions to enhance our client’s portfolios with one of a kind pieces that reflect their aesthetic, investment and tax strategies.

In addition to our expanded services, we are also pleased to announce our new office at 427 East 5th St. in Chattanooga’s iconic arts district. Our beautiful new office is located within a 100-year-old Victorian home that is on the National Registry of Historic Places and will provide our clients plenty of meeting space. Stay tuned for our upcoming open house tentatively planned for the Spring of 2020.
