Curious about Brooklyn's thriving art scene? Intimidated by the "art world" and not sure how to start looking for original art for your home?
Well, you’ve come to the right place!
Ground Floor Gallery owner, Krista Scenna, has designed a fun and casual art buying workshop for new art buyers and aspiring collectors in the New York City area. This conversational platform will demystify the art collecting process and explain best practices for conceiving an art collection, meeting living artists, and finding work - you want to live with - in your budget.
No experience collecting art is necessary!
BONUS: Every attendee will receive a free, limited edition print by a local artist to kick start their own art collection!
This class meets at Ground Floor Gallery, 343 5th Street in Park Slope.
