The Fine Art of Art Collecting

One of the greatest things about inhabiting your new home is that every blank wall is an empty canvass that’s just waiting for your personal touch. What better way to express your unique style, than through the fine art of art collecting. Los Angeles is home to some of the greatest art galleries in the country. From contemporary to traditional fine art, Southern California offers a bounty of treasures.
Los Angeles Fine Art Gallery opened its doors in 1979 and caters to those who enjoy period European art from Still Life, to Figurative, to Landscape, and Marine. Boasting a consistent inventory of more than 1,000 paintings, you’ll have plenty of choices at this time-tested, established gallery.

Downtown Art Walk occurs every second Thursday of the month and offers a self-guided tour representing top museums and galleries including CB1 Gallery, the Fold Gallery, the Diego Cardosa Gallery and the Blackstone Gallery.

William Turner Gallery is best known for showcasing emerging artists with a primary focus on “museum quality exhibitions and secondary market art sales.” Whether you want to fill those blank walls with photography or fine art, you can find it here. The gallery’s staff caters to their clients’ needs based on investment opportunities and artistic preferences.
Couturier Gallery “specializes in Latin American and American painting, sculpture, photography and ceramics by master and mid-career artists. The gallery has been a leader in promoting important artists from Cuba, Mexico, Puerto Rico, South America as well as the United States, Europe and Asia. The gallery collaborates frequently with museums and public collections curating exhibitions and developing their collections of Latin American art.”
The Anderson Galleries in Beverly Hills is comprised of dealers, agents and certified appraisers of museum quality 19th and 20th century paintings, drawings and sculpture. “We feature European and American works of art specializing in academic, realist, impressionist, post-impressionist and modern schools. Renoir, Monet, Pissarro, Sisley, Guillaumin, Vuillard, Bouguereau, Le Sidaner, Lebasque, Corot and many other historically significant artists are featured in our gallery collection throughout the year.” For a more personalized experience, private transactions are available through Anderson Galleries, offering an alternative to the traditional auction house.
Kush Fine Art is located in Laguna Beach, home of the Festival of Art and Pageant of the Masters. Vladimir Kush’s paintings, sculptures and jewelry are described as “metaphorical realism” and an “exploration of allegory, cultural history, philosophy, theology, ritual, myth and metaphor as subjects.”
