Highlights from our previous auctions:


Private Sales

BLACK ART AUCTION opened in February 2020, with two physical locations, in St Louis and Indianapolis, and has to date held six auctions. Thom Pegg, the owner of the auction house, has maintained a gallery known as Tyler Fine Art in his hometown of St Louis since 1987.  While the businesses have melded into a single focus—African American art—the functionality remains twofold: auction and private sales.  Moving forward, Tyler Fine Art will become a branch of the parent company, Black Art Auction.

Black Art Auction buys, sells, and represents several estates of Black artists, as well as important individual works by various artists. This “satellite” branch of the website is dedicated to the artwork available for private sale and the many scholarly publications produced by BAA.

We have added the ability to save and ‘watch’ lots, place and review bids ahead of the sale, and bid live in real time on sale day via our website and new mobile app. We hope you enjoy the increased functionality!
