The Art of Collecting

August 13, 2022 - August 13, 2022

Why Collect Art?

There are numerous reasons to start an art collection. Individuals may start to collect as a form of investment, a means of collecting a precious piece of history, or as a way to support the arts – the list goes on. Collecting art is a very subjective experience, but it is also a great way to showcase aspects of your personality and make a statement about who exactly you are.

On Saturday, 13 August White River Gallery hosted a facilitated discussion on art appreciation. Whether starting, or growing your art collection, our line up of special guest speakers gave insight into their respective ways of approaching the world of art appreciation and collecting. 

We welcomed guest speakers Karin Daymond, Henri Mittermayer and our own Dana MacFarlane, each bringing a different perspective on various aspects which highlight the allure of collecting art.
