So you want to start an art collection, but you are not sure where to start.  We ran across an article on artnet this week that might give you a hint of where to start. Apparently, this is what the hip millennial collectors are doing.

But if you want our advice instead, we say start local.  Purchase art that speaks to you, from a gallery or organization that you can visit and who can connect you with the artist. If you are interested in starting a collection, a wonderful first piece would be an original watercolor by Ashley Lathe.

Currently his work is on display @809 and we will be hosting a reception for the artist there on September 30th!  Find more info on the event on our Facebook page. Come and meet the artist and let us help you start your collection!
