We had an idea of what artwork we were searching for. Teresa did the legwork and found the perfect pieces to fit in our home and with our personal style.
Over the past years, we have purchased two oil paintings from Teresa when she was with Bartlett Gallery. It was a sincere pleasure to deal with Teresa in this regard and the main reason that we returned to purchase the second painting as well as referring friends. She is knowledgeable, honest, respectful and has a great sense of humour! She always went beyond her call of duty to accommodate us with delivery options for our purchases. Teresa is very creative and hosted and planned many ‘open gallery’ events at Bartlett Gallery, even to the point of ‘Skype-ing’ our artist in France so he could be ‘present’ at the gallery during one of these events! Who would think of doing that??? Teresa!!
Teresa has a stellar reputation with her clients and artists. We highly recommend her services in her new venture as a consultant for original, high-quality Canadian art. Perspective clients’ art investment will be handled with the utmost care, knowledge and respect by Teresa Rodrigues!
As regular patrons of the lovely, Bartlett gallery in the beautiful town of Alton, we had many warm and informative exchanges with Teresa. From the opening of a show to the closing, Teresa managed the nuances with the highest professional standards. Buying art is about making connections between the artist, the piece and client. Teresa’s honesty, generosity and openness strongly encouraged these connections. Teresa’s handling of the gallery’s space invited viewers to experience contemporary art in a relaxed but exciting way. Teresa always brought her knowledge, passion, insight and enthusiasm to her work and made our interactions thoroughly enjoyable.
