Briscoe Bison Society Presents the Fourth Annual Collectors Summit

Headin’ In or Headin’ Out? The Western Art Market in 2022

Headin’ Out
The first session explores the journey as novice buyers of Western art begin making the transition from buyers to collectors. An art collection is an intentional accumulation of works centered around a theme. At first, collectors simply buy whatever they like, exploring their tastes and interests. Then a pattern begins to emerge, centering their collection around a theme. Moderator Michael Clawson sits with panelists Jeremy Winborg, Katherine Hlavin and Mark Sublette to explore the changing nature of the Western art market as it relates to long-time collectors who are perhaps reaching their zenith.

Headin’ In
An art collection is an intentional accumulation of works centered around a theme. Finding a focus of a collection is seldom a rational decision. At first, collectors simply buy whatever they like, without giving much thought to it.  This is a great way to explore their tastes and interests, but after a while, a pattern begins to emerge. This session will explore the changing nature of the Western art market as it relates to long-time collectors who are perhaps reaching their zenith. As collectors begin “headin’ in” from their journey, what should they expect as they begin to transfer or sell their collections? Moderator Michael Clawson discusses with panelists George Hamilton, Julie Sasse, and Katherine Halligan.
