My friend Allison Cohen got some great PR from the Daily Candy for her company Sightline, which provides art consulting services. Basically, she helps people collect art. And she is very good at it. Allison is very knowledgeable about art, but more importantly, she has a remarkable ability to help people identify their own taste and then to identify art that will fit them. Allison also demystifies the process of art collecting and makes fine art feel accessible to the beginning collector. At the same time, she is sophisticated enough about art to service even the most advanced collector.

I first met her a couple summers ago at Sightline’s launch party at Palette. I happened to be at a competing happy hour at the same bar and noticed there was free food in the next room. I snuck over to mooch some chicken satay and crab cakes, but when I learned what Allison was doing, I immediately made an appointment with her to talk about buying and promoting art. We have since collaborated on art-related ventures and she has found some amazing contemporary art for our growing collection.
