Arin Ross Auctions brings over 30 years of experience to each and every fundraising art auction. Founder Richard Brandwein has conducted thousands of fundraising art auctions. Rick began his career in 1978 at Marlin Art. Based on Long Island, it was one of the first companies in the field of fundraising art auctions. In 1989, he co-founded Ross Galleries, Inc., which grew at a rapid pace as the popularity of this effective fundraising vehicle grew and dominated the regional art auction business. In 2001, Ross Galleries acquired Avatar Fine Art (formerly Heisman Fine Arts Gallery of Ardmore, PA, another of the early pioneers in the field) which secured their place as the industry leader and helped to grow the business beyond the northeast.
2006 saw the evolution of a new entity for Rick as Ross Galleries became AJ Ross Auctions and his responsibilities and successes grew. After several years, Rick felt the need to focus on what he does best: personally guiding and assisting each non-profit group's event to its maximum outcome as well as conducting as many of their events as his schedule would allow. With that guiding principle in mind, he created Arin Ross Auctions and today we represent the clear choice for fundraising art and memorabilia auctions.
Over the years, Rick and his partners have sought and developed relationships with an amazing variety of artists from around the world. The collections at Arin Ross Auctions are expansive and diverse, and feature an extraordinary range of artists, styles, media and price ranges. Included in our collections are original oils, watercolors, lithographs, serigraphs, giclees, etchings and sculpture. We represent and offer works by artists from the recognized masters such as Chagall, Dali, Rembrandt, Miro, and Picasso to the publications of the most notable contemporary artists of today including Peter Max, Itzchak Tarkay, Orlando, Avi Ben-Simhon, Guido Borelli, LeRoy Neiman, Charles Fazzino and many more ...virtually any artist or artwork that one would expect to find in a major gallery.
Another exciting dimension of our diversity is the inclusion of sports, entertainment and music memorabilia. From the collectible autographs of the greatest sports heroes of the 20th and 21st century to the stars of the silver screen, the legends of rock and roll, we offer authentic custom-framed photographs, albums, guitars, baseballs as well as more affordable keepsakes of the cultural icons of the past and present.
Each week, thousands of works are cataloged and custom framed in our state-of-the-art framing facility. The highest level of attention to detail and quality is paid to the preparation of each work of art and memorabilia, and only the finest quality materials are used. Each piece is then carefully stored until it is selected to be offered for auction.
Unlike many auction companies we collect and own all of the works that we offer in our events. Our artist-partnerships have been built over many years, and our purchasing power and in-house framing affords us the ability to offer exceptional value to our customers. We stand behind our product 100%. This gives our customers the highest level of confidence when purchasing from Arin Ross Auctions.
