Testimonials

“Our picture framer recommended we use Art Installed to hang some new photos. We didn’t have many pieces but Tom and Andrew arranged and hung them beautifully. Friends always comment on how nice they all look together. We look forward to calling when we get our next lot done.”

“We asked Tom to advise us on how best to display our art collection when we recently moved into an apartment. He provided superb advice on placement and installed the collection for us. I recommend him to anyone requiring this type of assistance without reservation. We are both extremely happy with work he undertook on our behalf.”

"Tom’s background in fine arts, coupled with his extensive experience in working in dealer galleries and major public galleries, provides an additional level of quality in his service – that of being able to assess a collection of works and ‘curate’. Whether in an art gallery, corporate setting, or a home, Tom can be relied on to install a diverse range of artworks to excellent collective effect.”

- James Blackie Director 2011

“I very much enjoyed working with you on both occasions and greatly admired the way you dealt with our artworks and their installation. We appreciated your professionalism and your artistic flair in the placement of the paintings. Our customer satisfaction level was very high. I have already recommended you to friends and would have no hesitation in doing so again.”

“Tom Westlake is a competent, efficient and very professional art installer. He has worked for the ANZ National Bank for the last 5 years installing our artworks in the Wellington region and has always shown the highest of standards. The range of work he has done for us includes hanging art at a public exhibition to hanging prints in office spaces and public areas within the bank. He is open, very pleasant to work with and engages with the art, solving problems well. I recommend him to you unreservedly.”

- Phyllis Mossman Art Consultant, ANZ BANK 2011

“For some years the New Zealand Portrait Gallery has engaged Tom Westlake from Art Installed as an exhibition designer, consultant and display technician. In all of these roles he has excelled. Tom has a rare talent for grasping the underlying principles, discerning how best to deal with any problem, and delivering first rate installations. He is unflappable under pressure, meticulous, imaginative and professional, and the New Zealand Portrait Gallery looks forward to many future corroborations with Tom and Art Installed”
