the key to building a truly great collection. Conservation and framing can also make or break a work,” states Tether. “A beau- tiful piece in a mediocre frame lowers the value of the artwork.”


Tether has founded and sold several businesses, allowing him to gain particular insight into socioeconomic buying trends. By analyzing purchasing trends paired with economic favor of the times, then comparing the results to related data over the previous five decades, Russell Tether Fine Arts Associates is able to project, with reasonable accuracy, what art trends will be popular next and the timing of the trend. Currently, there are more artists than ever before. The advancement of media co- incides with the advancement of art, and what is determined to be truly fine art has become in- creasingly vague. The only way


to speculate on which artists will remain popular going forward is to look through history. “Even something as absurd as a pile of dryer lint can be transcended to a great work of art if the artist can convince the right people,” Tether says. “People should look at the art rather than who is buying the art.” Russell Tether offers this advice to anyone looking to gauge true interest in a work—a checklist of sorts that he himself uses before investing in a piece. First, research the artist and re- cords. Second, is the work your waking thought and last thing on your mind at night? Third, do you dream about it and have


difficulty not thinking about it constantly? And finally, does this go on for several days? If all of this happens, then it’s time to buy, and if you want top- notch service and guidance, call Russell Tether Fine Arts Associates. You are certain to be pleased with the service and expert advice. 2
