Good reminders for anyone interested in art or already collecting art.

  • Buy art because you like it and because it moves you, and because it will
    enhance your life.
  • Visit as many art galleries as you can, gallery staff can be helpful guides in
    your art education.
  • Get on gallery mailing lists so you’ll be invited to openings and special events.
  • Visit and join your local art museums and non profit art centers.
    Curators sometimes give lectures on collecting art.
  • Attend National and International Art Fairs and Art Expos whenever possible.
  • If you know art collectors, talk to them and find out what they know and what
    they’ve learned about collecting art.
  • Read books on art history and books about collecting art.
  • Subscribe to a few art magazines.
  • Read reviews by local and national art critics, keeping in mind that reviews
    usually just reflect one persons opinion.
  • Working with a professional art advisor / art consultant is a good way to learn
    about art collecting, and they will guide you through the process of purchasing art.
  • Once you’ve educated yourself and have fallen in love with a work of art,
    buy it, take it home and enjoy it.
