Violeta de la Serna:

” Your Art Palette – How to Develop Your Collection While Your Discerning Tastes Grow”.

Free to Members, $10 Nonmembers

On the 3rd Thursday evening of each month, enjoy a wine and passed hors d’ oeuvres reception featuring fun, social activities, such as concerts, lectures, art demonstrations, live performances and gallery talks. It’s a perfect opportunity to broaden your knowledge of the arts and mingle with other art enthusiasts and Lighthouse ArtCenter members.   Sponsored by the Meyer Law Firm. 

 

Violeta tells The Rickie Report, “In a world where we can relate to food and wine, often times , more than we can relate to Art, we’ll discuss how to acquire new works as your taste develops. Our taste in Art changes with exposure and time…”

 

During this presentation, Violeta will address how developing your Art Palette will help you grow with your art investments. From where to view Art, how to look at it, how to relate and how to make better decisions in who or what to collect while staying in your comfort zone or, stepping outside of it in order to diversify your portfolio.
