How to increase value of your art collection despite market downturn

U.S. Customs and Border Protection Officers stopped a drug-smuggling attempt when they seized 6 large paintings with the frames full of packages of marijuana. On April 3 at about 8:30 p.m., CBP Officers selected a large van driven by a 55-year-old man from Phoenix for a routine inspection. CBP Officers became suspicious when a special K-9 team alerted to 6 large paintings that were being transported in the back of the van. The paintings were professionally done with very nicely constructed frames. An x-ray of the large frames revealed packages concealed within the frames. More than 90 pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of $153,000 were removed from the 6 large painting frames.(via Douglas Dispatch)

Global art platform { ART & ANTIQUES } for great collectors !
Art making and collecting is an opportunity for me to share my story with others. I'm finding, more and more, that people want to know the story behind what I make and collect. Collectors are less interested in whether or not they can look at a lot of art. Collectors need a place to ask questions and need someone to critique and edit the art objects, they need that professional eye! I want to help create environments for artists and dealers that are Unbelievably all embracing like a great magazine. As artists and Collectors we need to draw others out into the realm of self expression by creating a space that is safe and reassuring. It's why I love the idea of having one curated all encompassing place to see and research great art and collectibles, and if I wanted to ? Be able to have total safe access to buy the art object 24/7 any where in the world. The power of making art, and looking at the art others make, can heal us, change us, make us think, see new ideas, and give our story a voice by having a great online free posting cataloged platform. My dream is that everyone can be a part of that support forum by sharing there quality art objects! *Free Consignment please post your art objects --> http://www.BusaccaGallery.com 415-776-0104 { CURATED ART & ANTIQUES } For more info email me ----> BusaccaGallery@sbcglobal.net
