A common theme that we discussed was how collectors are savvier than ever, and are paying close attention to collection factors or the components that contribute to the overall value of their art. Collectors know which artists are trending, who is winning awards, and what major works are selling for, so whether they collect deceased artists or living artists, they have a keen eye and a better understanding of value.

Collectors are finding the most joy in works that are distinct in either style or narrative and are fairly priced. The Collector's Rendezvous provided such a unique setting in an informal and fun environment for individuals in all aspects of the Western art world to compare notes, share a few beers and talk about our common passion for art.
