Childs Gallery assists individuals in building a collection that is tailored to their personal aesthetic, budget, and goals. Through our extensive international network of galleries, dealers and private collectors, we are able to source artwork beyond our existing inventory.
We offer support throughout the buying process from initial research and price analysis to framing, shipping, and installation.
While individuals carefully build their art collections over time, architects, design firms, and businesses often have more immediate needs. Our fine art rental and lease-to-own agreements make it possible for companies to expeditiously enrich their working environments with permanent or rotating exhibitions of collectible paintings, sculpture, and prints.
We also offer our expertise in installation, hanging, and staging of artwork to best suit both new and existing spaces.

Framing is itself an art which serves both to enhance the artwork it surrounds and complement the space in which it hangs. Our in-house annex of popular South End frame shop, Around the Corner Framing, allows clients to choose from a wide selection of custom-crafted mouldings and museum-quality materials to creatively showcase their artwork.
ATC's Amanda Accardi joins us on select days of the month to extend her framing expertise. We also offer full service art installation services.
For over 85 years, Childs Gallery has been a trusted resource for collectors wishing to sell or consign their high-quality works of art. Clients appreciate both our discretion and protection from the vagaries of the auction market, which can publicly deflate value.
If you are interested in selling or consigning to Childs Gallery, please call or send an email with an image of your artwork(s) and relevant information.
Maintaining the integrity of your artwork is always of paramount concern.
