{Tuesday Tips} Gathering Information on Art Collecting

Great sources of information when you start collecting art:
  • Read art history books and books about collecting art.
  • Subscribe to art magazines.
  • Talk to other art collectors and glean their experience.
  • Visit as many art galleries as you can.  Gallery staff are extremely helpful.
  • Sign up for art gallery email lists and keep up-to-date on openings and events.
  • Visit and join local art museum or other nonprofit art centers.  They sometimes have lectures about collecting art.
  • Once you are educated about collecting art, when you fall in love with a piece of art buy it.
  • Purchase art because it moves you.
