Welcome to Herndon Fine Art - I'm Russell Herndon the Owner. Established in 1987, Herndon Fine Art offers fine art sales, consignment services, appraisal services, art research & evaluation, and frame design. Here's some more information about myself and the company
Russell R. HerndonI opened my first fine art gallery in Albuquerque in 1987 (image below). I was hooked early on when I was given the opportunity to be involved in the brokering of a very large estate which held 53 Andy Warhol pieces including two original Michael Jackson’s paintings valued at the time for $750,000 each (one sold a few years ago for over $5 million). I didn’t complete the sale but I had a terrific time working with many wonderful folks including Mr. Jackson’s press agent and record company.
While my love for the arts began with my Mother taking my brothers and myself to art galleries and off-Broadway productions in the Detroit area, my focus on contemporary art came from my time living in Southern California.
We presently sell the work of dozens of world-renowned artists. We have a sizable inventory as well as work with every major contemporary fine art publisher. We maintain a significant presence on the World Wide Web via www.herndonfineart.com.
Prior to when fine art became a full time passion I worked for the Department of Defense. During that time I was a Special Assistant on the Secretary of Defense’s staff. I was the DoD’s representative to the President's National Science and Technology Council's Committee on Education. I was invited as a Fellow to the Sloan School at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I was even the deputy satellite program manager for an experimental platform to demonstrate real time adverse weather surveillance. My principal fields of interest were astrodynamics and spacecraft technology. I have authored or co-authored numerous publications in these areas and have been invited to speak on satellite technology issues at many government, industry and university fora worldwide.
