Talk: For the Love of Art: How to Build and Define a Personal Collection
Collector and photographer, Maggie Meiners discusses how to begin an art collection. She focuses on the emerging market and sheds light on the various venues for art collecting from internet sales to galleries to art fairs. She discusses several local and well-known artists and cultivates an understanding of the importance of the artist-collector relationship. Maggie’s personal collection and her experience as a photographer offers a unique artist-collector point-of-view.
Maggie is a photographer and an art collector who began doing both, simultaneously in 2000 when her passion for photography was ignited after a visit to a photo exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. She regularly exhibits her work at galleries and museums across the United States, most recently at Anne Loucks Gallery in Glencoe, IL and the Ft. Wayne Museum of Art in Indiana. Over the last couple of years, Maggie has spoken to numerous audiences, including high school and university students on her work and collecting art.
