Much like the clothes you wear, the art in your home is a reflection of who you are.

Physical aspects of a piece like dimensions and colors may be the qualities that push us over the edge into “gotta have it” territory, but generally the buying experience is much more personal, intuitive and rooted in story.

Set amidst Jane Wunrow’s solo exhibition “Seeing Voices,” we invite you to join us for a panel discussion about collecting original artwork. Panelists Douglas Flanders, Herman MilliganJade PatrickKristi Abbott, and Marco Suemnick will drawn on their varied expertise in art consultancy and marketing, managing collections, and primary vs. secondary market sales to discuss how to go about collecting, getting your work placed into collections, and what characteristics make the Twin Cities unique compared to other prominent art markets.

We’ll share some pragmatic tips - like, how to learn about the artist and whether their asking price is a good value or not; understanding the materials and process used to make the work; buying within your budget - and also dive into the intrinsic impulses that lead us to collect original artwork and build meaningful collections over time.
