ABOUT LATELA

 

CONCEPT

LATELA is an Art & Curatorial Consultation Firm, led by International Art Consultant & Curator Marta Staudinger, which specializes in providing quality art sourcing, curatorial & collection management services for art collectors, corporate & commercial interiors, and design professionals.

 

MISSION

LATELA's mission is to take a genuine approach to the traditional commercial art gallery model + nourish real community within a local art environment for the artists we source/commission and our clients. We understand that artwork promotes mood in the space it inhabits, therefore we not only are art curators but also energy cultivators.

Moreover, we believe that our commitment to positive nourishment in our gallery extends to the quality of our relationships & client work, which is why we continuously offer Healing Gatherings in the gallery.

THE GALLERY

Voted Best Commercial Art Gallery of Washington DC (2016, 2017 & 2018), The Latela Art Gallery is a multi-purpose space established as a fusion between an art consulting/curatorial office and traditional art gallery, the Latela Art Gallery functions as an art & curatorial boutique that sources quality art with a focus on positive energy in interiors.

The gallery occasionally hosts solo & group exhibitions. The gallery regularly hosts intimate meditation/energy-healing circles as part of our commitment to community nourishment. We believe the [temporary] home of our art collection + center of our creative processes and client work should be continuously filled with positive energy from our community. This ensures a unique gallery-visiting experience, and more importantly, pure & positive delivery in the creative projects we realize for our clients.

OUR STORY

The Latela Art Gallery opened November 2015. The Latela Curatorial Brand (now ‘Advisory + Curating Services’) was founded a year earlier in 2014 by International Art Consultant + Historian, Independent Curator, & Artist Marta Staudinger.

Five months after opening, the Latela Art Gallery was voted Best Commercial Art Gallery in Washington DC. In its first year, the gallery displayed six exhibitions (featuring a total of seventy-three artists). In its second year, the gallery began to introduce displays of a rotating temporary art collection in between exhibitions. In 2018, in its third year of existence, the Latela Art Gallery was voted Best Commercial Art Gallery in Washington DC for the third time in a row.

Now fully focused on Advisory + Curating Services, the gallery occasionally hosts exhibitions providing further opportunities to (local & international) emerging artists and curators.
