Carmel art advisor Lily Yu will present an essential talk on art collecting entitled “Buyer Beware! 6 Ways to Avoid Risky Art” at the Monterey Museum of Art on Thursday June 20 from 5:30-7:00 pm. Lily, who is also a certified art appraiser will reveal the many dangerous market pitfalls facing collectors today. Using both well publicized examples and the most commonly found risks, this frank discussion will leave participants with a better understanding of how to protect themselves, how to recognize red flags and when to call in an expert to advise when purchasing fine art. Wine will be served at a reception after the talk and the museum will remain open for mingling, art discovery, and more discussion. Lily’s last museum lecture “How to Spot a Fake” was sold-out, so although admission is free to members, RSVP is recommended.
