The Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County and Silvermine Arts Center continue their partnership in presenting a series of conversations and events on the theme of Cultivating Collectors,with a second panel discussion: The Landscape of Collecting.
Panel Two: Landscape of Collecting,
April 27, 2017, Silvermine Arts Center.
This second discussion will focus on the education of collectors: what the best sources are for information about trends and rising artists; what to look for in artists’ resumes; how to develop and trust one’s own eye; how to gauge an investment, and more. The panel of speakers will represent the points of view of a contemporary art museum director, a collector, an investment adviser, an artist, and a commentator.
Recognizing the need to develop and cultivate art collectors in our area, and to help further establish the credibility of Fairfield County as a strong arts and cultural community where art is created, discussed, enjoyed, bought and sold, the Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County and Silvermine Arts Center are co-producing a series of panel discussions, culminating in an art showcase.
The goal of the series is to discover and reach out to collectors, to discuss how, what and why to collect, with a special emphasis on the dialog between New York City and Fairfield County. Our audience will be collectors, would-be collectors, curators, artists, gallerists, and real estate developers. The series will complement a Silvermine Arts Center course on collecting.
