One Art Nation and Art Southampton seek to evolve the art market through expert education

Jul 3, 2014

Online art network One Art Nation (1AN), and Art Southampton, a contemporary art fair taking place at the peak of the social and cultural season in the Hamptons, are partnering to present the 1AN Art Symposium. This can’t-miss educational event offers an expertly curated program for emerging and established collectors, enthusiasts and professionals. From July 25-27, fair visitors can attend daily education sessions offered by leading industry experts covering a range of art topics.

Jointly developed and designed by 1AN and Art Southampton, the 1AN Art Symposium has assembled a team of world-class professionals, including Deloitte Art & Finance, Dewitt Stern, Berkley Asset Protection, Winston Art Group, Crozier Fine Arts, Ross School, Appraisers Association of America, Artdex, and Skate’s Art Market Research. Highlights include a panel discussion on mediums used by artists and how they affect aspects of valuation, security, shipping, storage, restoration, and authenticity, and sessions on the importance of integrated arts education programs, the current structure of global art market and an overview of the current statistics of online art sales.

“With the vibrant development of the North American art market, more and more people are collecting and investing in art. As a result, there is an increasing need for art education. The Art Symposium will provide attendees with the skills required to improve their reputation as serious art collectors, maximize the efficiency of their overall asset portfolio and cultivate their taste for the finer things in life,” Pamela Cohen, Head of VIP Relations, Marketing, Sponsorships and Partnerships of Art Miami LLC Productions.

Julia Wehkamp, Managing Director of 1AN, expressed her excitement around the collaboration, “We are thrilled to be working with Art Southampton and combining our expertise to offer the 1AN Art Symposium. We understand that it can be intimidating approaching established galleries and auction houses. Therefore, we’re providing education so buyers can make confident purchasing decisions, whether at the fair or in the future.”

The event will take place July 25-27 at Art Southampton, located in Southampton, NY, and is free for attendees.  The sessions will be recorded by Workshop Media Inc., a full-service creative video production company, and can be viewed on following the event.
