How to get started in an art collection?

Good Things Utah

Claire Tollstrup, a local Salt Lake City Artist came by to talk about collecting art, and how to get started in an art collection.

Why buy original art? 

  • Unlike a pair of jeans or a new couch it doesn’t fade, it doesn’t go out of style
  • It doesn’t get worn out or damaged by your kids
  • It makes a house feel like a home 

How to start collecting art

  • Buy from a local artist
  • Buy from an emerging artist (Instagram etc)
  • Buy as a travel souvenir 
  • Buy when you feel connected when it represents something to you
  • Buy to support a struggling artist
  • Go to art shows, markets, festivals, galleries
