Waddington's Sets New Direction For Canadian Art Market

TORONTO, July 4, 2013 /CNW/ - A recognized leader in Canada's art marketplace, Waddington's sets the bar at a new level for the industry.  With amped up leadership and innovative new programs, Waddington's is redefining the role and function of the traditional auction house.

Linda Rodeck to lead Waddington's Canadian Fine Art Division Linda Rodeck, one of Canada's most respected Canadian art experts, is returning to Waddington's as Vice President, Waddington's Fine Art.  Ms Rodeck joins a distinguished and accomplished leadership team, headed by Duncan McLean, President; Stephen Ranger, Vice President Business Development, and a roster of specialists in Inuit Art, International Art, Asian Art, Decorative Arts and Jewellery. Ms Rodeck's most recently served as Managing Director of Sotheby's Canada.  Her 20+ year career highlights include partnering with Geoffrey Joyner from 1991 to 2004, which included three years with Joyner Waddington's and founding her own private art consultancy. Ms Rodeck serves on the Board of Trustees of the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Kleinburg, and has been active in many philanthropic activities, including the Canadian Art Foundation's Annual Gallery Hop and serving on the foundation board of Bloorview Children's Hospital.

Geoffrey Joyner, Canada's acknowledged authority on Canadian art says, " Linda Rodeck is one of the most knowledgeable and highly regarded experts in the field.  This is an exciting time for Waddington's."

Rebranding Waddington's Canadian Fine Art Ms Rodeck's return to Waddington's marks an important transformation of the 160+ year old auction company. Waddington's is proud to rename its Canadian art division under the Waddington's brand umbrella.  From a landmark auction of Canadian art in 1967 through our partnership with Geoffrey Joyner, now acting as a senior advisor to Waddington's, we are delighted to rebrand as Waddington's Canadian Fine Art.  Under Ms Rodeck's expert leadership, Waddington's Canadian Fine Art will bring new vitality to the Canadian art marketplace.

Waddington's, Canada's Auction House since 1850, is the country's most diversified provider of auction and appraisal services.  Waddington's offers live and online auctions of fine art and collectibles across a broad spectrum of markets, including Canadian, Inuit, Asian and International art, as well as Decorative arts and Jewellery.  A full-service company with respected subject matter expertise, Waddington's is also the leading expert on providing downsizing services.  Waddington's international network of clients and contacts ensures our auctions and services reach the broadest possible audiences.
