    Part 2: "The Intelligent Collector" - Collecting Prints and Editions

    Collecting contemporary art is a passion, some say an obsession. Prints and editions are a popular item in a collectors portfolio; but, when it comes to buying and collecting prints, there are many intricacies and tips that could significantly influence the value and price of a work. What are some of the key points in buying a print? What are some of the pitfalls easy to avoid when evaluating a print's edition? How does one value prints with many editions?

    Join Sue and Lotte Allen, exhibitions coordinator of the International Print Center New York (IPCNY), to explore these and many other questions about the print making and collecting process. IPCNY was established in Chelsea in September 2000 as the first and only non-profit institution devoted solely to the exhibition and understanding of fine art prints. IPCNY fosters a climate for enjoyment, examination and serious study of artists' prints from the old master to the contemporary.

    • discussion with Sue and Lotte Allen at IPCNY
    • tour of print making process and the IPCNY's latest exhibit
    • Pommery champagne

Conceived to be the first and only non-profit exhibition space, resource and learning center devoted solely to artists' prints, serving the needs of artists, printmakers, educators, publishers, students, collectors and general viewing public. It offers exhibition opportunities for contemporary artists through its New Prints Program which inaugurated the comprehensive program of exhibitions embracing all time periods and cultures, launched in 2000 with Hard Pressed at AXA Gallery and continuing today through our international and thematic exhibitions series.

    The salon was wonderful, and pablo did a great job leading the event and inspiring the conversation. bravo!

    Sue is enormously knowledgeable. it was an honor to be in her home and hear her speak so passionately about this world. her insight on buying work the year in which it was made will always stay with me. also her philosophy on acquisitions, which she calls the head, heart, hand continuum is brilliant!

    What an incredible first experience with gertrude! i absolutely plan on attending additional salons in the future. i loved the small group format and the home setting. i will recommend this to my friends. great date idea too ;) i think the host did a wonderful job and was incredibly knowledgeable and engaging. by far one of the more unique experiences i've had in ny. i can't wait to join for another one.

    This was my first salon, and i thoroughly enjoyed it. the atmosphere was intimate and comfortable, and the insight provided by sue was invaluable. i've since signed up for my next salon!

    I think there could be an opportunity for gertrude to add a small ritual in the beginning of each session -- something to tie all gertrude salons together, and to bond everybody to the community. there's a lot that's been written about the role of ritual in building community (think frat initiation, but less humiliating, less alcohol... actually that's a terrible example, but i think you get my point).

    There is no feedback for this Salon yet.
