Romare Bearden Carolina Blue (Interior)

Bringing the Museum Home for Over 35 years

Introduction

Welcome to a diverse art collection unmatched in breadth and quality. It is our never-ending goal to bring beauty, value and personalized service to all of our customers worldwide.

As avid collectors we have amassed an extensive collection of modern and contemporary artworks, home furnishings and fine decor.

We sell vintage estate and museum-quality artworks including paintings, prints, sculptures, and photography. We also offer convenient services for our clients including consignments, in-house packing & world-wide shipping, framing, trading, and appraisals.

RoGallery purchases art almost everyday - we are always interested in estates, private, and corporate collections. Art professionals know us as a primary source for all of their artwork needs. Our clients include, but are not limited to: interior designers, art advisors, architects, museums, universities, hotels, hospitals and other trade professionals.

RoGallery is a unique force in the art world. We have been an art gallery, dealer, and auction house of over 35 years located in the vibrant Queens neighborhood of Long Island City in NYC. In this time, RoGallery has established its place in the New York City art world as a trustworthy and reputable source of modern and contemporary artworks.

The gallery was founded in the early 1980's by Robert and Gail Rogal, who would become an art world power couple. They established themselves initially as limited edition print dealers by buying out the entire inventories of several major art publishing companies. Over the years their keen eye for superb artworks has expanded the collection to include thousands of original paintings, photographs and sculptures. The passion for collecting is still going strong today as we grow the RoGallery collection through purchases and quality consignments.

Customers that are within driving distance or visiting New York City are encouraged to visit us at our 10,000 square foot gallery showroom. The gallery is by appointment only. Hours are Monday - Friday 10am - 6pm ET. Please let us know in advance of your visit what artworks you would like to see. Most items are onsite, but some need to be transferred to our location for viewing.

RoGallery provides complete world-wide shipping and packing services for all items we sell. All items are packed in-house and shipped via UPS, Fedex or Professional Art Moving Companies (for special deliveries).

Frequently Asked Questions

Location

Where is RoGallery located?

The gallery is located at 47-15 36th Street in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens. We are easily accessible by NYC subway off the 7 train at 33rd Street – Rawson Street. If you are driving, we are off Queens Blvd, a short ride over the Ed Koch (59th Street) Bridge from Manhattan or off Exit 15 (Van Dam Street) from the Long Island Expressway. We have our own driveway and street parking in front of the building for your convenience.

Why is RoGallery by appointment only?

Our collection of nearly 30,000 artworks are mostly housed in our Long Island City gallery but many artworks are stored and not ready for display. We ask that you email us art@rogallery.com or call (+1)718-937-0901 with a list of the artworks you are interested in so we can have those artworks ready for viewing and cater the visit to show artwork that interests you.

Buying Art

How do I purchase an artwork?

Artwork can be purchased directly on the website on the product detail page. Below the artwork description is a blue, rectangular button that says ‘buy now’ and clicking it will begin the checkout process.

How can I make an offer on an artwork?

Some artworks allow the option to make an offer. If the work you are looking at has that option, a white rectangular button that says ‘make an offer’ will appear to the right of the ‘buy now’ option. Keep in mind this feature is not available on all artworks.

How will I know if my offer is accepted?

If your offer is accepted, you will receive an email with attached invoice prompting you to complete payment through the website directly.

How do I get more information about an artwork that I am considering?

We pride ourselves in providing as much information as we can about each artwork on our site. If you still have questions after reading the product detail page, you are welcome to email art@rogallery.com or calling (+1)718-937-0901 for more information.

Selling Artwork

Does RoGallery buy artwork?

We are active buyers of fine art prints, paintings, sculpture, and photography. Please use our Sell Art page to enter information and photographs of the art you would like to sell. We will be in touch by email to let you know how we can best help you sell your collection.

Do you have consignment options?

RoGallery offers listing and consignment options for those not interested in selling outright. A listing means you keep the artwork in your possession while we use your photos and information to sell the artwork on our site and in our live auctions. A consignment means we hold the artwork at our gallery and you receive payment after it sells. Generally, we work on net pricing meaning we agree on a fair price and that is the amount you would receive on a sale with no commissions taken from your end. The gallery collects commissions from the buyer only. To submit artwork for consideration, please use our Sell Art page to upload photos and information.

I am an artist; can I sell my own artwork with RoGallery?

We are always looking to expand our collection of contemporary artists. Please use the Sell Art page to submit your original artworks for consideration.

Art & Auction Services

Do you offer custom framing?

We offer custom framing options for artwork purchased from the gallery. Our professional framing department uses only acid-free, museum quality materials and Plexiglas so that your new artwork is framed for preservation. If you have specific framing instructions, please email art@rogallery.com or call (+1)718-937-0901 to discuss with our framing team.

Can I trade an artwork from my collection for an artwork on RoGallery.com?

Yes, in some cases. Please use the Sell Art page to submit your artwork and make a note in the comments of what you would like to trade for. We will follow up by email with the value your artwork may have on trade with us.

Do you appraise art?

Yes, our director Robert Rogal is a certified by the International Fine Art Appraisers (https://www.ifaacertified.com/) to provide appraisals on your artwork. If you need written documentation for insurance or legal purposes, appraisals begin at $150/item. We can provide free evaluation over the phone if you are simply looking to get an idea of resale value. Please use the Sell Art page to upload your photos and information and note in the comments if you are looking for an idea of value or a written appraisal.

What are RoGallery auctions?

We hold live and timed auctions online at least once a month to showcase new acquisitions alongside gallery favorites. Auctions are a great way to score amazing deals on the artwork and artists you love. You can view catalogs, register as a bidder, and learn more here: https://auction.rogallery.com/

Do you offer trade discounts?

We love working with art and design professionals and are able to extend trade discounts on many of our artworks. In the past we have worked with interior designers, museums, galleries, hotels, and hospitals to provide beautiful art at competitive prices. You are welcome to apply for trade partnership HERE.

Payment

What forms of payment do you accept?

RoGallery accepts payment by credit card (Visa, Master Card, Discover, American Express), PayPal, bank wire, and check. On international orders or transactions over $9000, we do request payment by bank wire. Checks and Money Orders can be made out to RoGallery and sent to our gallery address, 47-15 36th Street, Long Island City, NY 11101.

How are taxes calculated?

Orders picked up at the gallery or shipped within New York state are subject to 8.875% sales tax. Due to updated laws across the United States passed in 2019, sales tax is now applicable for buyers outside of New York state as well. Please check your local tax rates to determine how sales tax will be calculated on your order.

Will I be charged import/VAT fees?

All artworks that ship outside the United States are subject to the import/VAT fees of the destination country. When you purchase an artwork on our site and indicate a shipping address outside of the US, you will be prompted to pay these taxes in upon arrival of the item into customs in your country.

Can I cancel my order?

If you place an order that you’d like to cancel, please contact art@rogallery.com or call (+1)718-937-0901 to let our team know. We typically ship within one business day, so if you want to cancel an order that has already shipped it would fall under our return policy of 5 days with all original packaging materials. Please notify us as soon as you become aware of an error, and be sure to check the details of your order carefully before placing it.

Returns

Can I return my order if the artwork does not work in my space?

If an item does not meet your expectations, we have a 5 day return policy. Items must be returned in the same condition with all the same packing materials to receive a refund. Please contact us within 5 days of receiving your artwork for a refund or credit towards another purchase. If after 5 days we accept a return, you would be subject to a 25% restocking fee. Please note that we do not allow returns on custom orders, custom framing, or auction items.

Shipping & Logistics

How are shipping fees determined?

Shipping quotes are based on the size of the artwork and its value. We typically ship with UPS and FedEx insured for the full value in case there is ever a problem in transit.

How does RoGallery ship artwork?

All items are packed in-house and shipped via UPS, FedEx, USPS, white glove delivery, or global carrier services.  We ship all items with signature required and fully insured, so we are unable to ship to PO boxes. Framed artworks ship in double-walled cardboard boxes with compostable, eco-friendly packing peanuts. Unframed artworks ship in sturdy, crush-proof shipping tubes or flat in layered cardboard.

I live in the NYC area; can I pick up my artwork in person?

You are welcome to stop by the gallery to pick up purchased artwork. Make an appointment by emailing art@rogallery.com or calling (+1)718-937-0901 to let us know when you would like to stop by so we can have it packed and ready to go.

How do I track my package once it ships?

When your order ships, you will receive an email with the UPS or FedEx tracking number. If we ship with a white glove courier, we will be in touch by phone or email to coordinate delivery date and time with our driver.
