Catherine Matthias – “Selling, and Buying, Art”

So you’ve inherited art from your great Aunt Glenda and it just does not fit your style, or you’re downsizing and half your collection has to go somewhere. But Where? Or you have a big new house to fill, and the furniture is all modern–or thrift shop. How do you bring in the right kind of art at the right kind of prices? Bring your questions to this Brown Bag.

And if you are an artist… come listen to what buyers and potential buyers have to say. And listen to Catherine Mathias’s tips on buying and selling art. Catherine is a long-time gallery owner-operator, a children’s book author, business facilitator, and a long-standing member of Joseph Main Street’s art community.
