Frequently Asked Questions

Why do Art Dealers or Galleries need insurance?

Art dealers or art galleries require insurance to help manage risks. The insurance offers protection from liability loss, property damage, business interruption and other less known incidents. It protects your investment by minimizing the risks associated with unexpected events.

What risks do Art Dealers face?

Art dealers face a lot of unique risks. As a business owner of an art gallery, you are assigned to sell someone’s works of art. Meanwhile, you are liable for any damages during an event or transport. This is a risk every art dealer must take seriously, as each piece of artwork is very valuable. Customers could slip and fall in your gallery and sue you. Also, while artwork is in transit the truck could be involved in an accident and the art could be destroyed. Your business is liable for all damages to the artworks and to other automobiles, passengers, and property if your driver is at fault. Your property and all the artwork inside could also be destroyed by fire or flood. These are some of the expensive risks that art dealers face and insurance helps to provide financial relief if they were to take place.
