About:

“Avery Galleries is a relative newcomer to the gallery world having been founded in 2001. The principal, Richard Rossello spent the first part of his career in an entirely different entrepreneurial business pursuit. What motivated him to form Avery Galleries was an enduring passion for American fine art. Rossello was a lifelong collector and avidly pursued collecting opportunities as an avocation. Lightning struck on his forty-eighth birthday when he suffered a mild heart attack. While recovering from the resultant bypass surgery, he decided that life was too short to do anything by half measure. He retired from his restaurant operating company and opened Avery Galleries. The gallery was founded on two guiding principles and they have become bedrock beliefs of the company. First, was to manage the quality of the art sold by purchasing it outright rather than taking art on consignment. This “put your money where your mouth is” orientation has allowed Avery to focus on works deemed to be most desirable, not on serving the needs of consignors who may or may not be selling works that meet the highest standards. Second, Rossello only buys paintings that he would want to own personally. These tenets have helped Avery Galleries to establish a reputation for consistent quality in the works of art offered.”
