…..it appreciates!! At a recent opening, a friend of mine was inquiring about art biz in these clearly challenging times. Well……………challenging, I would say. He made the point, and a lovely point it is, that art is one thing that consistently appreciates. Maybe there was even MORE reason for people to be buying art now. Also, it is something that can be enjoyed every day. Other collectors have suggested that art is a home improvement that they can take with them when they move, a legacy to pass onto to their children and a place to find solace in our often stressful lives. Something to think about.
