Rescued Art

You Can Trust Us at Rescued Art

“I have purchased quite a few works of art from Rodney, both for my own home and as gifts; I have never been disappointed. All arrived quickly, very carefully packaged and in great condition, ready to be hung. Rodney is not only a trustworthy seller, but I also have been able to find beautiful and unique works of art, pieces with soul, for about the same price that I would pay at a big box store.” ~ Inese Lovelace

We save art from dusty places: thrift stores, garage sales, attics. Our expert eye guides us to original, vintage, and limited editions. We join the grand tradition of pickers to recycle beauty.


We enjoy studio bench work  to make sure frames, backing, and mat are in excellent condition. Our many years of artisan and craft experience add real value to each piece.


We bring abandoned, damaged art to a state of elegance. If we had a brick and mortar store, all our sales staff would wear tuxedos.
