Selling Options
Consignment

If your collection meets our minimum consignment value, we will discuss an individualized agreement that defines a guaranteed price, period of consignment, and marketing strategy. The gallery will then present you with a formal consignment contract. Once both parties have executed the contract, we will begin to market your works. You can be assured that your works are protected by Ronin Gallery’s insurance throughout the duration of the consignment period.

Direct Purchase

Ronin Gallery may offer to buy your work outright. If an agreement is reached, all payments will be made immediately through check or bank transfer.

Let's Get Started

1.Take Photos with Your Phone Take clear, color photos of the front and back (if possible) of your works. For best results, take your images in good light and, if possible, remove your art from the frame. The better your image, the more accurate our initial assessment.

2.Email Us Email the photos of your works along with any object history (e.g. provenance or sales history; how did the work come to be part of your collection?) and contact information (name, email, and telephone number) to collections@roningallery.com.

3.Receive a Response from a Specialist Once you submit your photos, you can expect a call or email from one of our experts to let you know if we are interested in either the purchase or consignment of your collection. If your work meets our consignment criteria, you will receive an informal evaluation and sales options. We may request further information and photographs at this time. We will answer inquiries as quickly as we can, but please be patient. Please note that preliminary estimate may be subject to change upon the physical inspection of the work.
