According to Alana Kushnir, a lawyer and founding director of art advisory and event service Guest Club, state galleries are a great place to start.
“You can feel like you don’t belong when you start out but there are so many ways into the art world that are more accessible than people might think.” - collector Kate Dinon.
Graduate art shows and events like Sydney Contemporary, the Affordable Art Fair and the NGV Triennial are among Dinon’s favourite events, as well as fundraiser auctions at West Space gallery in Collingwood and First Draft in Sydney.
While things are slowly changing, for the most part galleries only provide artwork prices upon request. Email the gallery and ask for a price list.
Not necessarily. If you’ve found an artist you want invest in, it’s worth reaching out to the gallery that represents them or to the artist directly via Instagram and ask if it’s possible to commission a work.
