About West Chelsea Contemporary – Austin, Texas

West Chelsea Contemporary is a world-class gallery filled with museum quality art. We set out to offer something different to the serious art collector in central Texas.

Founded in Austin in 2002, West Chelsea Contemporary (formerly Russell Collection) offers works by names such as Banksy, Alex Katz, Damien Hirst, KAWS, Hunt Slonem, Takashi Murakami, and Andy Warhol. Representing emerging and mid-career artists working in a range of mediums, the gallery’s program focuses on 20th century and contemporary art, with a particular specialty in American and European post-World-War-II movements.

Today the gallery maintains an exhibition space totaling more than 7,800 square feet, with two satellite locations.

We feel confident that we have succeeded in establishing and maintaining our vision by acquiring only the finest pieces from various sources. Some of these include private collections, auctions, estate sales, directly from the artist or the artist family. With our resources we have access to collections worldwide. If you don’t see something on our walls ask us. We may be able to find it.

All of our pieces are professionally framed using only the finest museum quality materials.

All materials are acid free and UV protected. A piece of artwork is not placed on the wall until it is professionally cleaned and framed to our highest standards.

Russell Collection clients are assisted by an expert staff dedicated to providing the highest level of service. Whether you are interested in purchasing a special painting or building a collection, our consultants can provide the resources to make acquiring art a rewarding experience. All pieces come with a certificate of authenticity.

Most people acquire art and keep it for a lifetime and pass it down to the next generation to enjoy.
