DDK works with clients in film, music, theater and other highly creative fields. We’ve also developed a niche providing tax, accounting and other essential business consulting services to art galleries representing painters, photographers, sculptors and multimedia artists. There are more than 1,500 galleries in New York City alone, with a high concentration in Chelsea, Soho, The East and West Village, Tribeca, the Upper East Side, Queens and many Brooklyn neighborhoods.
Our expertise in the not-for-profit arena as well as our work with closely held businesses translates into the art world, with many museums operating as non-profits. We help those museums with financial consulting while helping our other art gallery clients take advantage of sophisticated tax planning and compliance with federal, state and local tax filings.
DDK provides financial statement review and audit services, tax planning and compliance, insurance planning and analysis, artwork valuation and other essential services to galleries of many sizes and budgets, from startups to prestigious Stage 4 galleries that represent artists whose work appears in museums.
