Tips, Topics, and Tidbits from ATFA Appraisal's Collector News

Dear <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>,

We appreciate your support of our work over the years, and would like to help strengthen your art world knowledge by offering insights on the art market from news sources you may not have come across previously.  

Enjoy this quarter's edition of Collector News which draws on commentary from international art sales to the financial markets, and from "The China Factor," to digital limited edition art, and Haiti.

We are valuers of fine art including paintings, prints, and photographs, with specialization in art of the African diaspora (Haitian art, Caribbean art, Latino/Latin American art, traditional African sculpture, and folk art).  We have recently expanded our services in the areas of private museum collection management and artist estates.  We currently have a small selection of individual artworks or whole collections available for sale.

Thank you for your continued support.  Have a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year 2012.

All the best,
Donna and staff
