Seraphin Gallery is an amazing gallery. I just saw the Robert Goodman show, and all I can say is "I want to move to a larger condo, with more wall space, so I can buy every piece". I have been to almost every show this Gallery has, and I have never been disapointed. What I love about the Gallery, is that I never know what to expect when I walk into each new show. About 6 months ago, I was surrounded by the cool clean line of Harry Bertoia's drawings,which I had never seen before. Then the next show was Sidney Goodman's show which was so strong and powerful.. I have started to collect, in a very small way, and started when the owner Anthony Seraphin sold me a Leon Golub drawning for $2500.00, and in less than a year, it was worth $12,000.00. I'm hooked for life, and can enjoy my investments as they hang on my walls. Thank You Seraphin Gallery, you are 5 star in my book.

I was in the Philadelphia area a few weeks ago on business and came across an Art Gallery that was so elegant and relaxing and peaceful, it was called Seraphin Gallery. It was such a pleasure to walk through the gallery looking at all the great pieces of Art. I just enjoyed speaking with the owners sister Ms. Seraphin who give me a sweet and short history about the artiest. I will be back in the Phili area soon and will surly look them up.

Pros: Staff

Cons: None

.

As always, the Art shown by this gallery far exceeds anything shown in Philadelphia. We always enjoy the dry wit of Anthony Seraphin the director. I never bother sending reviews, however after being made aware of the ridiculous review written on this site. I made Anthony buy me lunch to prove them wrong. Thanks again for you time and patience, the piece looks great on my wall.

Pros: Best gallery in Philadelphia

My husband and I have been purchasing Art from Seraphin Gallery since we moved into Center City 4 years ago. Our best pieces have come from Seraphin. We try to never miss an opening. I just read "shermeela" posting. She needs to "get a life" If she rates this Gallery because of the owners poor sence of humor, that is sad. I have dealt with Tony Seraphin many times, and although he isn't "warm and fuzzy", he has one of the best "art eyes"in the bussiness, and we have followed his suggestion often and never been sorry. I have many New York friends who check out the gallery scene in Philadelphia, and the always stop at this gallery. I've never heard anything but good remarks about the gallery, their staff or the art they show.,

Cons: Tough to park on street in area. Must use parking lots.

Having recently purchased a condo in Center City, I am in desperate need of art to cover my walls, so I frequent galleries from Philly to NYC to get to know artists and their work. I recently received an email invitation from Seraphin announcing an exhibit, but noticed that the opening date was in the past. Jokingly I replied to the email pointing out the fact to the message sender. I received a reply from Tony Seraphin himself stating that I should be interested in the art, not the free food.
While I am appalled that he would put such a message in writing and address it to a customer, I am amused by how such an act speaks volumes about the business and its representatives. If a gallery owner views his own customers and freeloaders, would you want to patronize his business?

Cons: Rude

.

there are apparently two different people who select pieces for this gallery (or else one person with a split personality problem). one chooses gorgeous paintings that exhibit the best of what is being created in non-abstract contemporary art; the other ruins every exhibit with a weirdly pornographic, shocking for the sake of shocking, ugly image. the last display i saw was a collection of amazing painted nudes disrupted by a straight-on black and white photo of a vagina. what gives, seraphin gallery? the mixed aesthetics don't really work for me.
