We turned the tables of our Art Collector Conversation series and spoke with our fearless leader, and RedDot founder, Lily Stone, about her own art collection, buying sheep and her years of “not getting it”. (more…)
At RedDot, our primary goal is to take the stigma out of buying art. So many people we talk to are intimidated by art, even collectors often don’t call themselves that. In our Collector Conversations series, you’ll meet young, budding collectors who will hopefully inspire and excite you, proving that it’s just art, and you should really buy what you love. First up, we sit down with communications consultant Alison Kessler–and her adorable French bulldog, Reggie–to talk about her favorite pieces and how collecting art is in her DNA.
