SFE 2022 Artist Think Tank with Vicky Streeter on Art Collecting

Tue 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM
Topic: Managing a Business

WESST has revamped the Artist Think Tank series by bringing in guest artists to bounce ideas off of and topics to get the conversation started.

We’ve been listening to you. You love making art. You want to sell your art. What do you know about buyers and art collectors?

We’re excited and honored to introduce Vicky Streeter, the proud owner at Streeter Strategic Solutions, art collector, needlework artist and lifelong shopper. Credentials aside, a life spent travelling, living and working around the world has given her a passion for shopping for art and things handmade because there are so many interesting and amazing artisans out there.

One of her greatest passions is encouraging people to buy works that speak to them, are a lasting vessel for a memory, or just useful. She also makes and sells her family's needlework. She’ll share valuable information from the buyer’s perspective, including:

  • Why the art is worth it to the buyer

  • Two types of buyers - luxury and casual - and tips on the approach for both

  • Recognizing when customers want to buy something

  • What to do when the customer is not always right

  • Necessity of origin stories for your art
