Katie Garry and Nisha Stickles look to our own Elizabeth K. Garvey for expert advice on art collecting in their article, "The Labrynthine World of Art," published in the Fall 2015 issue of DOWNTOWN Magazine.

 

"The [art dealer’s] job exists because it’s a labyrinthine world to navigate where everybody is not playing by the same rules,” Liz said for the article. "To any person just coming in from the outside and with no knowledge, no expertise, it’s really kind of scary." Liz points to the importance of researching works before making a purchase. The internet is a powerful resource nowadays - yet even so, concludes the article, an art expert's guidance is a wise investment.
