    New art collectors in Houston face an imposing variety of viewing and purchasing options. To help eliminate confusion and intimidation, Visual Arts Alliance has again assembled a panel of three experienced collectors who will share their passion for the visual arts. Intended for new and experienced collectors alike, this panel will provide insight into personal tastes, experiences and opinions regarding the collecting of artworks. The discussion will also let artists discover what collectors look for when considering acquiring a new piece.

    Our second discussion of the Collector's Perspective will be moderated by Chris Higham. The guest panelists will be Gus Kopriva, Ray Hylenski, and Michel Muylle. Mr. Kopriva is the owner and direct of Redbud Gallery. Mr. Hylenski is a local documentarian and collector, specializing in prints. Mr. Muylle is an artist, curator and collector.

    The free discussion will take place at The Montrose Centre, 401 Branard Street, rooms 112-113, on Saturday , April 7th, starting at 11.00. There will be Q&A session at the end of the meeting.
