In this blog, we explore original fine art on consignment by answering a few of the most common questions about how art consignment works at Around the Block.
What artwork do you accept?
We accept original pieces, as well as some prints. We look for artists that have sold on the secondary market in the past, as well as mid-career artists that are still available in the galleries today. Finally, our selection process is subjective depending on what our customers are looking for and how we’ve done in the past with comparable pieces.
How do you determine the value of a work of fine art?
At Around the Block, we use only certified appraisers to value the artwork in our collection. We look at the global secondary market, and how we’ve done with similar works by the same artist.
