Collecting art should be thrilling and rewarding. It should be transformational because there is so much we can learn from art and through art. There is so much we can gain from living with art.
Working with an art advisor can make the experience of collecting and buying art at once enjoyable and enriching. Whether you’re an established art collector or interested in starting a collection, you need to know who the important artists are, what is available, and what has potential to grow in value over time. But navigating the art market can seem daunting and overwhelming.
Just in New York, the sheer number of art galleries and artists is intimidating. Prospective buyers and collectors, who want to be thorough and make an informed decision while buying art that they love, can benefit from working with a trusted and knowledgeable advisor who can guide them through the art buying process. Along with expert guidance on art collecting and acquisition, most art advisors also help their clients make informed decisions concerning framing, installing, insuring, transporting, and conserving the art.
The truth is most people don’t have the time to read about the latest shows and trends, go to all the art openings and art fairs. Most people don’t have the time and the expertise needed to navigate the art market to their best interest. Doing all of this can become a full time job and that’s where an art advisor steps in.
Most art advisors are intent on cultivating their clients appreciation, understanding and love of art while making the art buying experience uncomplicated.
