Senior Art Curator

Our Community

At Cohart, we prioritize human connection. We work closely with artists to help them develop their businesses, tell their stories, and create a presence that resonates with our community. We curate artwork listings that beautifully showcase their work and produce video content that allows them to share their craft. If an artist is not yet ready to be verified, we will personally reach out to them to chat about it.

The Authentication Process

Every piece of art sold on Cohart undergoes a rigorous authentication process, including a thorough, manual review of each artist's professional work. We have a manual verification process that thoroughly reviews each artist's professional work. This includes looking at their bio, practice, perspective, and affiliations before they can sell on Cohart. We evaluate the artwork's provenance, condition, and any modifications it may have undergone. Every work of art comes with an authentication certificate, which is hand-signed by the artist.

💳 Why It's Great for Buyers

Buyers can purchase with trust and confidence. Verified artists have a green checkmark on their profiles. We've thoroughly vetted each verified artist to ensure the artists you purchase work from are reputable and authentic. Our team checks in with all of our artists regularly to ensure their profile info and artwork listings are current. This keeps them accountable to you and the Cohart community.
