Adult Programs

The Art of Buying Art
If you buy or intend to buy art, do you know the difference between a giclee and an archival print, or what defines ‘fine art’?  Enjoy an engaging conversation about the questions to ask, and how to evaluate the answers when buying original works of art or reproductions anywhere from a street artist to a blue chip gallery. Deborah Bigeleisen, an internationally renowned mid-career painter, who lives and works in West Palm Beach will lead this fun and informative discussion.
