How To Buy Art

For those of you who are into art but not sure how to buy it, follow the advice provided by the best art dealers, art advisers and artist that dwell in this world. Here are the top three ways for collecting those best exciting pieces:

1. PERUSE YOUR ART MARKET

Go to museums, galleries, and art fairs.

Notice what art you connect with that calms or stimulates you. But don’t try to take in too much info: “It’s debilitating.” Says dealer Candice Madey.

2. MEET THE ARTIST

Visit the studio. Ask questions.

What story is the art telling? How is it made? What’s your artistic process?

It’s an interaction that’s absent from a visit to an exhibition.”  says artist Natalie Frank

3. BE STRATEGIC

Spend more on one great piece. It’s a better tactic than buying lots of less-expensive works. Ask dealers about interest-free installment plans.
