Robin Gross

Fine Art Appraiser



since 2007





In 2003 Robin Gross made a divergent move into 'the world of beauty' from 'the world of commerce' after practicing in her field, Organizational Development, for more than 25 years. For five years she devoted full-time attention to FaFa Gallery, which specialized in hand-selected traditional Chinese furniture ranging from 150 to 400 years in age, and intended to deepen the appreciation for Asian beauty. From conception to day-to-day execution, Robin oversaw every aspect of this highly specialized, self-financed, relationship dependent, solo enterprise.

Upon closing FaFa Gallery, she resolved to integrate art and business.Thus she turned her attention to professional fine art appraisal. Robin holds the American Society of Appraiser's “Accredited Senior Appraiser” credential with a Fine Arts specialty. She has completed Northwestern University's certificate in Appraisal Studies in Fine and Decorative Art. Robin keeps her Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practices (USPAP) current. She had the good fortune of Dr. Burton Dunbar's tutelage, and she holds a Master's of Business Administration from the University of Missouri - Kansas City. For seven years she served on The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art’s Print Society Board.

Appraisal assignments have included a wide variety of Clients: museums, artists, religious institutions, American Indian nations, public institutions, corporate and private collectors, and heirs of property. No two assignments are the same. She has worked with 18th, 19th, and 20th century American, Asian, and European paintings, prints, drawings, and sculptures; Asian artifacts; religious, WPA historical, and artist owned works; and large collections as well as single important works.

Accessing scholarship, experience, and insight from both worlds of business and art, Robin's time is now devoted to professional art appraisal. In addition to her sensibility that "art is for the art of living" and with a strict adherence to the American Society of Appraiser's Code of Ethics, Robin brings strong client relationship and business skills to her professional art appraisal practice.


My office is located just east of the Brookside area (which is south of the Country Club Plaza).

601 Brookside Professional Building, a three story glass-walled office building, is on the south side of 63rd Street between Holmes and Cherry. When coming from Hwy 71, the building is 1.5 miles west of Hwy 71.

My glass-front office is located on the lower ground level and can be directly accessed from the parking lot in front of the building; this requires using stairs. Reserved covered parking (look for sign) is available for my guests on this lower parking level.

Access without stairs is possible by parking on the upper parking level, entering the building, and taking the elevator down to B level.
