Bryan H. Roberts earned his BS and MS from Virginia Tech and worked as a professional geologist for a decade before entering the antiques and fine art field in late 1989. His initial focus was on early American furniture, art, and decorative accessories but later he turned exclusively to the field of fine art. In 1996, he founded the Bryan H. Roberts Gallery in Columbus, OH, which offered American, European, and Scandinavian paintings from the 18th century to present. In 2010, he co-founded and co-owned Brandt-Roberts Galleries, the largest fine art gallery in Columbus, OH. During his years there, he and his business partner produced numerous exhibitions, partnered with various charitable and art-related organizations such as BalletMet, and worked closely with other galleries and the Columbus Museum of Art. In 2014, Bryan sold his interest in Brandt-Roberts Galleries to his business partner and moved full-time to Sarasota, Florida with his wife Linda.
Bryan is a member of the Florida State Guardianship Association, the Sarasota County Aging Network (Immediate Past President), and is certified in the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practices (USPAP) Equivalent. He belongs to civic organizations such as Art Center Sarasota and does pro bono appraisal work for PEL, a youth-focused non-profit organization that maintains an upscale resale store on Lime Avenue in Sarasota. He is also an oil painter, fossil collector, and scuba diver.
