Why collect?
Art is a valuable investment that often transcends typical market fluctuation. It adds value to your visual environment and can bring great pleasure. However, it has been typically relegated to a small sector of the community. With membership in the Collector's Club we are offering a great opportunity to learn more about the art world, and to collect selected prints and photographs at a discounted price, before they become available to the general public.

LYDM's goal in the gallery has always been to promote education about art and artists that are historically significant. In so doing, we help individuals and corporations in building significant collections that suit their particular tastes and spaces.

The Collector's Club will address certain common questions from potential collectors, such as:

What makes an artist important or valuable?
  How does art compare to other investment opportunities?
  What is the role of Art Fairs in contemporary collecting?
  How does a gallery owner select artists for exhibition?
  What role do the arts play in a city’s/area’s cultural heritage?

To do this and to explore these issues, we will visit collectors' homes, artists' studios, other galleries and museums, and art fairs.

Past events
LYDM formed Collector's Club in 2008 with monthly special events for its members and a featured artist/work per month sold to members for discounted prices.
