The Lure of Contemporary Art:
How To Build an
Art Collection
W
hen considering what to hang on your walls, which
can be anything from Tibetan rugs, African motif
masks, Photography, or Paintings – the holy grail
of wall art – take your time making a decision.
Establish a relationship with a gallerist or an artist who
shares your aesthetic values and understands your design
sensibilities and your emotional connections to the art work.
This individual should be someone with whom you feel
comfortable and will work with you without pressure to help
you achieve your vision of an integrated living environment
for you, your family and your guests.
Joel Feliciano, his wife Diane Fernandez and their two young
children Ian and Ava Feliciano visited Agora Gallery on a
warm September afternoon after browsing on our website
to inquire about a number of paintings that they were
considering for their stunning new downtown co-op. Both
Joel and Diane are seasoned art enthusiasts. Mr. Feliciano
is a born and bred New Yorker, and an attorney and partner
in CGH, which operates and manages several high-end
restaurants in Manhattan, including The Lion, Crown, Bill’s
Food & Drink, Il Principe at Hotel Hugo, and Windsor Sports
Lounges. The Lion and Crown have art galleries that feature
an impressive collection of original artworks.
