Join A R E A founder and director, David Guerra, for your introduction to art collecting.
Learn about the basics of building and developing an art collection, how to navigate the art market (including where to find exciting new work and know when you've spotted "the one"), and what to buy with your budget.
Afterward, enjoy a wine reception with fantastic views of downtown Boston, and receive an exclusive tour though A R E A's selection of work by emerging and mid career artists at The Yard. Make some new friends, dismantle some myths, and maybe even take home the first piece in your collection.
Up to 10 slots per session. All participants receive a collectible print with admission and a special code to access artworks curated by A R E A.
