Art collector Judy Pomerantz at home

Collecting art can be one of life’s most exciting, consuming, and satisfying pleasures. The research, the hunt, the thrill of discovery and acquisition, the amazing people you meet along the way, and the expanded world view and self-knowledge that attend it all are simply exhilarating.

In this 2-session course for new and seasoned collectors alike, art critic and adviser Judy Pomeranz explores how to find your own collecting passion that also fits the dimensions of your pocketbook; where to find and buy art; how to perform due diligence; and how to negotiate systems within the various marketplaces. She also discuss collection management, including caring for, installing, protecting, and conserving works, cataloging, valuing and insuring them, and deaccessioning.

October 30

Managing, installing, caring for, and protecting your collections; deaccessioning through donation or sales.
