The first rule of collection building is to identify client preferences for certain kinds of art, individual artists and artworks. There are many different places to acquire artwork, some reputable and some not so much. Often people are showing you work that they want to sell you, not work that will nourish or challenge or satisfy you. Jeffrey will assemble a selection of fine art for purchase from a wide range of sources including regional, national, and international galleries, private dealers, unaffiliated artists' studios, and works for resale from auctions, individual and corporate clients.
