Many of our clients are art collectors and admirers and have found it quite difficult during the pandemic to be separated from their usual routine of visiting galleries and museums. This has been a challenging and complicated time for the art world. Closures, changing regulations, and limited funds have made it difficult for collectors, artists, galleries, and museums alike.
After being closed for almost a full year, some museums in Los Angeles are finally reopening this month at 25% capacity; for others, it doesn't make sense to open with such limited numbers. New York institutions are mostly open and are slowly adapting to the new protocols and changes. Miami's museums have been open for several months now, mostly operating with limited hours. Galleries in all U.S. cities have taken different routes; some have opened with limited capacity and schedules, others by appointment only, and still others have shut their doors for good. Meanwhile in London, most museums and galleries have been closed for almost a full year and remain closed. However, new guidelines have just been released - commercial galleries can reopen, with restrictions, on April 12 and museums in mid-May. Despite all this turmoil, contemporary artists continue to make new work, and serious collectors continue to support the arts by visiting open spaces and by acquiring new works when possible, both from commercial galleries and from the auction houses.
As many of you know, British American Household Staffing's CEO and founder also owns and runs Anita Rogers Gallery, a contemporary art gallery in SoHo, New York that exhibits both primary and secondary market works.
The gallery is open Wednesdays and Fridays 11am-6pm.
The gallery is also open by appointment; please email Info@AnitaRogersGallery.com to schedule a private viewing of the current exhibition or of works by any artist on our roster.
