What are the benefits of art cataloguing?

We provide peace of mind by ensuring your art collection is organized, documented and primed for:

– Estate Planning
– Insurance
– Collection Management
– Selling or Donating Artwork

We are art stewards.

Art collection management is our forte.


I worked in the contemporary art world for almost two decades before moving to the museum and cultural sector. I know firsthand that prior to Kalaman + Demetriou, there was no readily accessible collections management service available to collectors. K+D has grown a needed service into an enterprise that helps collectors across Canada.

We work with our private and corporate clients to organize art events, tours, talks, and educational seminars to help you tell the story of your art collection — how it was built, what it includes, and why it matters.
