Sunday March 14, 2-3:30pm
How do I collect art with a very limited budget? What should I look for in a work of art? Do I go through a dealer or can I buy directly from the artist? Shaun Mayberry of Mayberry Fine Art has been involved in the art world most of his life and is one of the best guides to help you get started. This session will introduce you to some of the ins and outs of collecting Canadian art.
