Gallery Insurance

Gallery Insurance

The business of buying and selling art involves very specific risk exposures – which can change even from hour to hour as the work is installed, uninstalled, handled and shipped worldwide or even played (in the case of instruments).

We understand that art galleries and dealers need an insurance provider who is easy to communicate with, and who can respond swiftly and with flexibility.

La Playa Fine Arts can help with:

  • Property: inventory, loaned items & objects on consignment
  • Blanket coverage for approved locations
  • Art in transit worldwide
  • Enhancements including art fair/trade show coverage, Bailee legal liability coverage, art reference library coverage
  • Building, business property and general liabilities
  • Event coverage for private views, concerts, readings, and receptions


Coverage includes:

  • General Liability
  • Bailee legal liability coverage
  • Business Property & Office Equipment
  • Building Coverage & Systems Breakdown
  • Identity Recovery Coverage
  • Business Income & Extra Expense ('Actual Loss Sustained' basis)
  • Business Auto Coverage
  • Workers' Compensation
  • Employment Practices Liability
  • Umbrella and Excess Liability
  • Crime Coverage

Private or public, profit or non-profit, and whatever medium is your forte – we’ll support you with expert advice and specialist coverage so that when crunch time comes, your claim is paid.
