Collecting is a great way to advance a life-long relationship with contemporary art. I continue to collect art, but I've advanced past even that. I now promote contemporary art and "collect artists." Artists are even more important than the art they create, but first things first. I've written and designed the following "collection" of essays so that if you read them all from start to finish, you'll have solid knowledge about art collecting and the confidence to grow as a collector. I wrote these just for you ... Enjoy.
