Fine Art is a Fine Investment

June 18, 2014 Galaudet Gallery opened its second location in downtown Eau Claire, WI.  This new gallery continues the area’s revitalization and will be a vibrant gathering place for artists, collectors and art lovers. Galaudet Gallery celebrates the region’s contribution to the visual arts world by maintaining a commitment to artistic excellence and aesthetic experience.

 

Galaudet Gallery is located on the first floor of a Victorian 3 story building.  4 impressive rooms will hold 4 exhibitions every year.  Each exhibition is accompanied by interpretive, educational, cultural, and archeological elements that will be staged to highlight the artwork present.  

 

Galaudet Gallery focuses on Modern, Contemporary and Post-Contemporary artworks that have integrity and that produce an aesthetic experience.  In defining the artworks that will be shown we will choose high quality, conservation-minded pieces that represent the theme of each exhibit while also searching for artworks which our clients have expressed an interest in.   The Gallery also considers archival and conservation issues involved in the longevity of a piece of art as fundamental when choosing artworks to be shown since these considerations can change how the piece is valued culturally, aesthetically and in the marketplace.  Artists who use archival methods and know how to make pieces that can stand the test of time is one of the many variables considered.

 

Fine Art is a Fine Investment and the owners of Galaudet Gallery know this first hand.  There are many areas to consider when purchasing a piece of art such as taste, inclusion in a current collection, storage possibilities, location of artwork.  But when looking at purchasing art from an investment perspective there are even more variables besides the tried and true method of asking, "Do you like it?"
