Global Galleries© accompanies art projects and exhibitions, give advise to collectors, promotes cooperation between artists, galleries, companies, institutions, collectors, and negotiates art from private ownership and initiates editions. In order to develop and establish a lasting basis, Global Galleries© itself is in need for support. We benefit from any of your sellers and from financial donations. The offers are mainly based on a serious private2private sale. That means in such cases a simple net sale without VAT. The results will be reinvested for art projects, new art processes, art scouting, art promotion e.a..  Your purchase will enjoy you and will help to support our multiple charitable projects.

Private2private art sale

The art lover and collector buys art at his own pace. Only condition, it must please. But he/she is also looking for essential works of a time, epoch or region, a country, a culture circle or an artist etc. A collection requires care.

The market and the offers are large, budgets very different, prices are from favourable to very expensive. However, the value and the quality remain at the estimation of the viewer. What is asked today, does not necessarily have to write history and what does not pay attention today and therefore remains unrecognized, can later enter into art history. Try to get a feeling about artworks, that will touch your heart and that will have the quality to content essential contemporary atmosphere.

What is fact: Art reflects the soul. Art in this sense can be seen as an offer to discover yourself. Graphics, photographies and multiples may socialize this aspect. That means, you can share your emotions with others – that is a really great idea.
