Our Story   |   Curating 400+ Years of Fine Art

Global Expertise     |     Merited Trust     |     Extensive Experience     |     Industry Leadership 

Established in 1967 by Harriet and Jerry Petr, Atlas Galleries has become as firm a fixture on Chicago’s luxurious North Michigan Avenue as the Water Tower, the Wrigley Building and the chic exclusive boutiques and flagship retailers of the Mag Mile.

Atlas Galleries has guided collectors through the ever-changing world of global fine art for 50 years, facilitating countless client acquisitions and nearly an endless assortment of magnificent pieces. The Petr Family has dedicated their lives to the artists, consultants and collectors that have truly become part of the family.  The Atlas Galleries staff has been carefully cultivated over the years resulting in an incredibly artistically-knowledgeable team of fine art consultants and back-of-house specialists, many collectors themselves.
