Private Collections

With over two decades of experience, Talley Dunn has placed artwork in collections throughout Texas and across the country, working with collectors from every generation and with a variety of interests and collecting objectives. The gallery prides itself upon the relationships built with private collectors and its ability to provide unparalleled service. From working with the individual considering a first purchase to the seasoned collector, the gallery guides the collector through every step of the art acquisition process, from education and identification to acquisition, delivery, and placement. Collecting art can be an enormously rewarding experience, and the gallery enthusiastically supports all levels of engagement with art. With a dynamic program of year-round exhibitions, artist talks, and studio visits, the gallery provides collectors with direct access to paintings, sculpture, photographs, and other works directly from the artists’ studios. Additionally, the gallery houses a vast inventory of primary and secondary artwork that can be viewed in the 10,000 square foot gallery complex.

The gallery's experienced staff can provide a full range of consulting services, including analysis of pricing and current market trends and auction updates. The personalized attention extends to advising collectors about framing, placement, installation, long-term care, conservation, and collections management. Site visits as well as delivery and routine installation are often complimentary services extended to collectors working with the gallery.

Additionally, the close relationships built with artists, curators, and dealers around the country allow the gallery to notify collectors in advance of upcoming museum exhibitions and gallery projects, often giving collectors the opportunity to have advance notice of available works and preview artworks prior to exhibition openings. Above all, the gallery strives to support collectors through the process of acquiring art with knowledge, enthusiasm, and enjoyment.
