Over the past year, VoCA has been co-hosting a series of seminars on the topic â€œArt as an Asset Classâ€. The seminars focus on the reasons to, or not to, purchase art as an investment.
Thereâ€™s a good article on this topic from the Financial Times right HERE
And a piece that we wrote HERE

VoCA went to the Art Gallery of Ontario this weekend.
We saw the stunning, and much-ballyhood Bernini sculpture, on the way to the Chuck Close exhibition and the too-small show on contemporary Indian art. Bernini’s mid-sized bronze of Jesus on the cross has been mounted on a podium, the figures outstretched arms held aloft by invisible thread. Without the cross backing the figure, the effect is one of lightness and liberation, as if he is raising his arms in a gesture of flight.

The Chuck Close exhibition presents a number of photorealist tapestries of Closeâ€™s artist friends, including Cindy Sherman and James Turrell. As you enter the exhibition, there is a wonderful, enormous black and white painting of â€˜Joelâ€™ (Joel Shapiro, we think?) What a painting. We could have looked at it for hours. We couldnâ€™t help thinking what a sensation these works must have caused when they were first introduced in the 1970s.
