Joel Lever, Esq. Takes You Inside the World of Fine Art Transactions at a Special ArtsWestchester Presentation

Collecting fine art is one of life’s great pleasures, but Joel Lever, Esq., Westchester’s preeminent transactional art law attorney, urges: “before you can enjoy the reward, you need to understand the risks.”  Mr. Lever will lift the veil of mystery and expose some of the pitfalls in the acquisition of fine art in his presentation “The Educated Collector: Limiting Risk Exposure When Purchasing Fine Art.”  The event takes place Thursday evening, October 23rd at 7 pm, at ArtsWestchester, 31 Mamaroneck Avenue in White Plains. The event is free and open to the public.

In this lecture, Mr. Lever will discuss, among other issues, auction house and art fair practices, insurance pitfalls, authenticity and title warranties, and negotiating the purchase. 

“The acquirer operates at a disadvantage in the world of fine art, where the rules are decidedly against the purchaser,” notes Mr. Lever, who for more than 30 years has represented numerous leading dealers, artists, galleries, and collectors.  “In addition, art is an emotional purchase for buyers, who are usually far more prudent when investing in other assets.” 

Although the event is free, space is limited. To reserve a seat, call 914-428-4220 ext. 330 or email
