For the investors.....

Art investing requires knowledge and education.  If you want to be successful in art investing, become familiar with the various genres of visual art and the artists who are recognized in each category.  Featured this month is Outsider Artist Aloise Corbaz.  What is meant by "outsider art"? ....art created by self-taught artists who are not connected to the mainstream art world or educational art institutions, and whose work is often only discovered after their death.

For collectors - novice and experienced

Should my art match my sofa?  Does finding art you like feel like looking for a needle in a haystack? It certainly can given the abundance of resources available.  Build your confidence in making selections with one simple concept - trust what you like - even if it is not popular.  Do a little research on how to go about the process.

Collecting art is a journey of discovery and personal enrichment.
Who's Buying What?
