Nuria Richards is an arts professional who is passionate about art collections and the way they positively impact the market and philanthropy. She attended the Fine Arts School at the National University in Mexico City and holds an Art Business Graduate degree from Sotheby’s Institute of Art – Claremont Graduate University where she extended her academic interests to Economics, Cultural Studies, and Management of Corporate Collections.

Around this period she became part of ArtTable Florida Chapter as Chair of Programming.
Nuria supports young and emerging artists through the curatorial project Clandestina and is the founder of RICHARDS & Co, an Art Management & Estate Planning Agency that evaluates and creates strategies for acquiring, selling, transferring, and donating art. She works, with families and individuals, designing the sale and acquisition of works by artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat, George Condo, Diego Rivera, Wifredo Lam, Joaquín Torres-García, Victor Vasarely, and Leonora Carrington. Her relationship with art and involvement with museums, galleries, artists, and collectors in the US and Mexico seeks to create cultural impact through the practice of art collecting.
Nuria’s goal is to generate strategies for collectors to successfully fulfill their art interests, while positively impacting the community. She has been a conduit between secondary and primary markets for a generation of artists and collectors that were caught in the middle of a rapidly changing art world.
