Art collectors blueprint from Alison Snowball’s collectors kit
The Gladstone has set-up shop in Trinity Bellwoods Park this weekend for the 10th annual Queen West Art Crawl!
Our theme this weekend is Keep it UP. What’s a fair price for a painting in Toronto? What are the important questions when purchasing an artwork? All this and more is explained in Alison Snowball’s ingenious and affordable kit. Containing a limited-edition screen print by emerging artist Alicia Nauta, this illustrated manual supplies aspiring collectors with everything necessary to engage in the local art market. In addition, the first one hundred kits include a limited edition screen-print by local emerging artist Alicia Nauta.
