Your Guide to Getting Started

You are part of the art world.

It’s not just our motto. It’s what we believe. Whether you’re an artist, an art lover, or someone exhausted by museums, you’re constantly engaging with art. In its broadest sense, the art world encompasses a wide range of creative expression from painting and drawing to music and theater. However, the phrase also describes more insular networks of people who make, curate, and write about fine art. They revolve around galleries, auction houses, museums, and universities that are primarily clustered in a small number of cities. These institutions can be exclusionary. This keeps art out of the hands of most people.

It can be challenging to feel comfortable in traditional art world spaces, but you are part of the art world. We’re here to help you gain access. Getting started as a collector can be as simple as finding a work that you love at your price-point. That first work can help you build confidence in yourself. You have the knowledge. You have the taste. Your collection should reflect you. 

There are many reasons why you should buy art. It supports artists, it can be a social touchstone, and it can even help you build financial security. Most of all it’s something that you can enjoy in your home every day. We always come back to pink fuzzy slippers…

Imagine you wake up in the morning, you pour your coffee, and you sit down on your couch. Now imagine looking up and seeing the work of art you bought. You love it. This is what art can do. This is the art world at its best. It’s about walking around your home in your pink fuzzy slippers and knowing you made the right decision. Whatever you pay for a work of art, for whatever reason, you should be able to enjoy it there on your own terms.
