Frequently Asked Questions

I have a work of art I want to sell, can you help me?

Cincinnati Art Galleries would love to help.  We have been in business over 30 years, and are proud of our well respected reputation.  We are in the business of buying and selling original paintings by 19th and 20th century artists. Please feel free to either call us or send us an email and we will be happy to discuss your painting.  We are dedicated to promoting and maintaining the highest degree of professionalism, scholarship and integrity in all business we conduct.

Does the gallery sell prints of 19th and 20th century works?

No, we deal in oil paintings from the turn of the century.  If you need information concerning a print, etching, or lithograph please search for a dealer who specializes in those areas.             However, we do sell prints by Cincinnati artist E. T. Hurley.

Do you only deal with local Cincinnati art, or do you deal in other American and European artists as well?

We carry a broad range of 19th and 20th century paintings by both American and European artists.  We have many paintings that are not listed on our website, so please give us a call or stop by to inquire about our extensive inventory.

 Do you have clients around the country, or just in the Midwest?

We have clients all over the United States. As we have traveled to different shows and exhibitions over the last 30 years, we have met many individuals and dealers with whom we have developed professional relationships.  We are a member of FADA, the Fine Art Dealers Association of America, an organization of respected and established dealers from across the United States. Membership in FADA is highly selective and by invitation only.

In our building, on the 2nd floor is Collector’s Art Group Framing and Restoration.
