This workshop will help to familiarize participants with learning to trust your taste, attending art openings, finding art you love, and becoming comfortable with looking at art as something to acquire and live with. There will be a moderated panel of collectors and sellers and plenty of time for audience questions.

The discussion will include:

  • affordability of art (it isn’t just for the rich)
  • comparability with other typical/everyday purchases
  • why art is not usually an investment but an acquisition
  • the importance of buying art to your local economy
