West Vancouver Art Museum to Host Lecture Series on Collecting

West Vancouver, Canada — Spencer W Stuart, Collections Advisor, is excited to announce a three-part lecture series that he will be delivering at the West Vancouver Art Gallery entitled Lifecycles: Collecting & Collections. The Series focuses on collecting art (prints, photography, and painting) and building private libraries. It will cover both sides of the coin, discussing the initial attractions that move one to collect and the steps one must take to ensure a collection’s legacy beyond one’s very personal time and place.

Saturday, 2:00 PM, February 1, 8, 15, 2020; West Vancouver Art Gallery, 680 17th Street, West Vancouver; Free
