Apparently, some folks faint at the terrifying prospect of filling their white walls with artwork. Snooty gallery personel, committement issues, resale values, and the fear of getting gouged make the world of art collecting a daunting task for some.

Anyhow, Joyce Wadler's piece in yesterday's (thurs 3/28) New York Times made for a good read and a terrific assignment as the cover for the Home and Garden section. Artcle here

Buck-up all you richies! Buy art.
