Artstream – Learning about Art through Investment in Art
A group of 38 aspiring art collectors represented by twenty Unit holdings known as Artstream Pty Ltd. Started in 2009 in Albury New South Wales.
The Artstream collection comprises of paintings and works on paper by Australian artists working with in the period from 1960 to the present. Principally the collection will embrace works that reflect the artist’s response to the environment and to where and how we live. In additon the group considers how to build a strong collection and the investment value of each artwork purchased.
A buying group of seven is selected on the basis of a two year rotation to consult and purchase artworks on Artstream behalf.
The life of the collection is 10 years then all art will be offered and sold within the group.
As a group we are collecting emerging, established and iconic artists. During our journey we try and establish a link with the artist and many have visited us or we have visited their studios. To date some of the speakers we have include artists Elisabeth Cummings, Mandy Martin, Lesley Dumbrell and Jon Cattapan and consultants Audray Banfield and Amanda Love.
Each year we travel to capital cities and visit art galleries and have two speakers visit Albury to talk to us about art. Annually we have held an art workshop where unitholders have the opportunity to experiment with drawing, painting and creating. Always a good way to learn to appreciate what is being collected.
We hope you enjoy our collection. It will be updated annually.
