About Us

The Wellington Gallery purchases "Collection-Quality Original Art" from renowned Canadian and International artists. We buy artwork (vs. consignment) because we acquire better paintings and we believe that Artists, Galleries, Collectors and Viewers all experience a more pleasant life from the energy and emotion that radiates from Original Artwork.

The Wellington Gallery began in 2004. The Gallery is known internationally for acquiring originals from established Artists and the Gallery Owner, Emil Simon who is an Accredited Member of the International Society of Appraisers and has been instrumental in helping thousands of Collectors buy Art and in completing  Appraisals for a wide variety of items.

For example, we have appraised the James Naismith Basketball collection , the Collections of famous Athletes and Fine Art,  Memorabilia, Collectibles , Coins and Numismatics for Collectors, etc., 

Initial  calls or emails to us are complimentary!

Robert Bateman has a foundation that supports Royal Roads University in Victoria , B.C. and when he sells an original painting a portion of the proceeds typically go to support the University.


Gallery Owner with Steve Kaufman. Kaufman was a colleague of Andy Warhol and was 6 feet 8 inches tall so he was nice enough to sit for this photo! Here we are having a pint of Guinness together, only a few years before his tragic death in 2010. The Wellington Gallery was the last Gallery outside the United States to hold a show for Steve Kaufman.
