s I’m sure you all know, we spend a lot of time traveling the
country and going to art events. For us, it’s the best way to really
know what’s going on out there, to have our fi nger on the pulse,
and in turn, offer to you updated and timely articles that will help you with
your art collecting.
Many of you go on these trips as well. And we love seeing you out
there. I’ve always said that if we have to work, there’s nothing better than
working with good friends. But for those of you who can’t go on these trips
or at least can’t go on all of them we have a solution—our Instagram page.
We can be found at @WesternArtCollector and what you’ll fi nd
there is a veritable smorgasbord of visual delight. Artists in front of their
paintings at various events across the country, lot-by-lot auction results
in real time, event photos, museum exhibitions, gallery exhibitions...
you name it, we post it. We see it as the perfect companion to the
printed page. In fact, every show we cover in the magazine, we post on
Instagram on the day of the event to serve as a gentle reminder in case
you were planning on attending.
So not only are we the only monthly printed magazine dedicated to
the market for historic and contemporary Western art, we are also the only
Instagram page where you can fi nd all this on a daily basis. Join the over
tens of thousands of people who already follow us on our various social
media platforms. There’s just so much to take in!
P.S. This issue is one of our biggest in years! We are delighted by
the response we are getting from friends, collectors, artists, auction
professionals and museum curators across the country! It warms our hearts.
Stay tuned for even bigger and better things happening on the pages of this
