This is not an official meetup for our group but I wanted to share that the building is doing this really fun event and if anyone wants to attend! I'm going on my lunch hour for sure! "The Art of Art Collecting Tour" Please RSVP to: [masked] Learn How to Build an Art Collection FRIDAY FEBRUARY 22,[masked] Blue Hill Plaza Pearl River, NY, 10965 Meet in the Cafeteria on the Concourse level of Blue Hill Plaza (down the escalators). This is a free event. Please wear comfortable shoes for walking. Please RSVP to: [masked] Do you love art? Do you want to make solid investments? Collecting art, whether for love or profit, or both, can bring great pleasure. But where do you start? Who’s work should you invest in? When and where should you buy? There’s definitely an art to collecting art, and Ms. Barbara Jacobs Sussman, curator of the Blue Hill Art and Cultural Center and professional Fine Art Appraiser will be giving a free tour of “Revealing Common Ground”, the current exhibition at the Blue Hill Art and Cultural Center. She will cover the fundamentals of building a collection and topics such: as the materials that artists use, how value is assigned to a work of art, the difference between an original and a print, how to effectively research and evaluate the art you consider buying, and how to create a meaningful grouping. Developing a plan for making several acquisitions over a period of time (that is, building a collection) can be daunting. It’s easy to find art that you like, but knowing what to buy is more difficult. Whether you are a serious collector or collecting for fun, there are techniques that can help you make the most of the quality and value of your art, your own personal enjoyment of the collecting process, as well as your appreciation and understanding of it. Barbara J. Sussman is eminently qualified to help you understand how to create an art collection and to answer your questions. She is an appraiser of fine arts qualified by the American Society of Appraisers to make legal documents valuing art. She is designated by the Society as an accredited member and a fine arts specialist, and is also the president of Fog Hill and Co., which manages art collections for museums, corporations, and individuals.
