Collecting Art

Where does it begin?

You buy a painting here, a photograph there, a sculpture you just have to have. Before you know it, you have an art collection. It seems that is the way most of us start.

As our collection grows, we become more selective regarding the art we buy. Of course, there are considerations such as wall space, surface space and other such things. This goes on until we reach a point where we look at a piece of art that we do want, but cannot imagine where we would put it.

Sound familiar? So what is the solution?

You have to follow the tactics great museums use. You have to curate your art. Some art will have a permanent position on your walls or surfaces, some art will have temporary locations based on your mood or time of year. The idea is that you can rotate your secondary artworks so you can refresh the art around you.

Using this simple practice will enable you to appreciate your favorite pieces while keeping the artwork in your home or office fresh. The rotation brings a new appreciation for your secondary pieces.
