1. Is there a Paul Scott Gallery and a separate Gallery Russia?
We have one physical location called Paul Scott Gallery in Scottsdale’s Arts District. From 1992 to 2016, the gallery was called, “Gallery Russia.” In 2016, the gallery’s name was changed to “Paul Scott Gallery,” which is the current name.
However, with over 20 years in business, many clients worldwide still recognize Gallery Russia. You can click on the “Gallery Russia” tab on the homepage of www.paulscottgallery.com and look at works from the former Soviet Union—both historical Soviet Era as well as by some contemporary artists who are not currently represented at Paul Scott Gallery.
2. Does Paul Scott Gallery buy paintings from private collections or take them on consignment for resale?
On occasion, we will take a painting on consignment from a private collection to resale. Commission percentage depends on the artist and painting. We will consider works by current Paul Scott Gallery artists and a few non-gallery artists. Also, we do consider quality, historical Soviet Era paintings for consignment. Please email us with pertinent information.
3. How do I submit my artwork for consideration for representation?
We prefer an artist to email us with their up-to-date website and/or 5-10 lower resolution images of current work. Please do not cold call us on the phone or in person. We try to respond to every submittal, but sometimes we do not. We apologize in advance. However, please realize we do look at every submittal and will definitely let you know if there is a fit.
4. Does Paul Scott Gallery participate in Thursday Night ArtWalks?
Yes and no...we actively participate from October through April. We are usually not open for Thursday night ArtWalk from May through September. When in doubt, please call first.
5. Is the gallery free and open to anyone or do I need an appointment?
Even though we sometimes look like a museum, I assure you we are not. Everyone is welcome and you do not need an appointment. If there are specific paintings you would like to see in person, we do suggest calling or emailing us in advance so we can make sure the paintings are on the floor for your visit.
