Majority Rule by artist Michael Cook

WHY:

Over the years I’ve come across a lot of creatives wanting to sell their art, specifically to serious buyers at a higher price point.

It’s difficult to figure out the high end art market. It feels so insider, “hush hush” and like no one is sharing info. But HERE is someone willing to share and bring you into the fold!

Maggie Scott, who has been a president of an art collection group (Port Phillip Collection) is not only delightful and hilarious, but she has 10 years of experience and amazing insights So many artist want their art taken seriously and to be purchased by buyers that will appreciate their talent, this is a great opportunity to understand how to get in front of those collectors and what they’re looking for. It’s also great for people who are interested in wanting to start collecting for their own homes.
