Sell/ Appraisals

State of the Art Gallery and Sculpture Garden and State of the Art Gallery II , both galleries located on Cape Ann, Gloucester Massachusetts have been in business of selling paintings and sculpture by contemporary and deceased artists received from collectors and other art galleries across the nation for nearly twenty years. Please contact us by sending us an image to our email with any provenance available, or call Roger Armstrong at (978) 395-1783 to evaluate your painting and frame, suggest any restoration issues, arrange for shipping, and sell your painting when you are ready and satisfied with mutual sales and commission arrangements.

State of the Art Gallery is a recognized expert in the field of painting and sculpture appraisal. We have appraised collections of art from three hundred plus paintings by a single artist, to a single painting. Our background expertise in this part of our business began in 2001, the year we opened the second gallery in downtown Gloucester at 18 Pleasant Street. Since December of 2016 the second gallery downtown has closed but the State of the Art Gallery and Sculpture Garden in Rocky Neck remains open and sales and appraisals continue. We specialize in appraising work by Cape Ann artists, as well as nationally recognized artists. Appraisals have been completed for insurance purposes, estate planning, legal settlements, and asset evaluations. Our fee is minimal and the appraisal is documented in writing and accompanied by a photograph of the painting.
