Review of American Art Collector Magazine
If you're an artist, an art collector or just an art lover you probably already get American Art Collector Magazine. But if the name is new to you here's a good review of the magazine. I love it and have been advertising my work there over the past few months, with a new ad coming out in the September issue. I like AAC for its straight forward style. It presents beautiful, large full color images, quotes directly from the artists, galleries that represent them and collectors who purchase from them. I particularly like the "red dot" section that documents painting sales that are a direct result of a collector seeing the painting in AAC. I also like the price range indicators that let you know right up front how much a particular artists work sells for and the short interviews with gallery owners, talking about what's hot and what's not in their geograophic area. You can pick up an issue at larger bookstores like Borders, or you can subscribe, which comes with a nice on-line feature. You get a link to the entire new issue in you inbox about 10 days before the hardcopy arives in your mail boxor hits the stores.
