Our masterclass series kicks off with three experienced collectors sharing how and why they began collecting. Panelists Jean-Pascal Fournier, Tom O’Neil, and Andrey Ostrovsky, MD will discuss how they have developed relationships with the galleries and artists they collect from, what strategies and parameters they keep in mind while collecting, and how their collecting has changed over the years.

March 9th – Artist as Collector:

Artists Ryan Travis Christian, Edra Soto, and Noah SInger will discuss how they began acquiring work, and how their approach to ownership has developed. This conversation will take a deep dive into the importance of building a personal collection as an artist, unveiling the various ways artists can support their peers and grow a collection while growing their own practice.

April 13th – Corporate Collecting: 

Join industry professionals Joanne Cohen, Anna Cerniglia, and Joshua Rogers as they share firsthand accounts of creating space for art in the workplace. Our panel will pull back the curtain on how they have helped build corporate collections and established acquisition strategies in a business setting.  This discussion will explore the benefits and challenges of building a corporate collection, what motivates them to keep going, and what they look for in new acquisitions.

May 11th – Collecting What You Love

Established collectors Murat Ahmed, Sue Stoffel, and Douglas Robson share their straightforward approach to collecting and new acquisitions. This engaging conversation for collectors of all levels will shed light on what motivates our panelists to follow their hearts and eyes first.
