Based in Chicago, Illinois, but representing and placing artists worldwide, Ross Contemporary was founded by Terry Ross in 2010. Following his own extensive experience in learning about, understanding, collecting and appreciating art for both its pleasure and investment value, Terry Ross founded Ross Contemporary on the principle of educating others about the fine art of appreciating, collecting and displaying contemporary art  in a wide range of settings.  Ross Contemporary collaborates with young collectors and old, private and corporate, new and seasoned, guiding each client towards the appropriate works that fit within their lifestyle, budget and décor. The vision behind the process through which these collaborations occur comes directly from respect - respect and appreciation for the artist, their work, the history of art, and the collector drawn to the work.

Artists represented by Ross Contemporary are living and working in a wide range of Contemporary styles, subjects and mediums. They are carefully chosen for the commitment they have to their work and the passion that their work emanates as well as the quality of their art. Ross Contemporary artists have been shown in prominent galleries, museums and art fairs the world over as well through local galleries and non-profits supporting their communities. As a collector himself, Terry Ross encourages his clients to buy pieces that move, inspire and bring forth your passion for art. The artists and pieces chosen to be represented by Ross Contemporary have evoked these emotions in Ross Contemporary and now it is the collectors turn to feel the same. There are few greater pleasures in life than living with a work of art you love!
