Sevil Dolmacı Art Consultancy

Today, it continues to serve as Turkey’s first art consultancy company with a team of thirty experts.
In addition to the Art Consultancy company, Sevil Dolmacı Art Gallery was established in 2020 with the addition of “Villa İpranosyan” as the gallery building. The Art Residency program, which provides a supportive infrastructure in creating the artist profile, was organized for the accommodation and production of artists in the historical Greek building called “White House”.
