Back to All Events


Following on the heels of a very successful evening last Thursday talking all about creativity with James Strecker, this is the second event in the inaugural fall lecture series at Mikreations Gallery in Virgil.

This event will be all about collecting original art. Art prices today are soaring at such a rate that the highest have been called nothing short of “obscene.” Even art that destroys itself, such as Banksy’s “Girl with Red Balloon,” seems to hold its value!

At the same time, many people are reluctant to buy art. A recent article suggests that the anti-materialism of younger generations prevents them from starting collections and older generations — such as “baby boomers” — have such a vast collection, they have “no more room on their walls.”

So, given these two extremes, is there still value in original art? If you love art, how do you start a collection? How to you rejuvenate and refresh an exisitng collection? How do you give art as a gift? What can you do to encourage children to invest in art?

We will discuss these questions and more, led by a panel of art experts and enthusiasts from the Niagara community.

All are welcome so feel free to invite your friends. This is a FREE event.

Mikreations Gallery, 1547 Niagara Stone Road, Virgil.

7 p.m. Light refreshments.
