The Spectrum Annual Contemporary Art Show: “Passages” was held at the New Canaan Carriage Barn Arts Center recently. Rand Insurance along with PURE Insurance, was a sponsor of the recent exhibit and hosted a patron reception and panel discussion – What Does It Mean to Live with Art? – from Collecting & Care to Presentation & Design.
The panel featured Rachel Palacios of Heather Gaudio Fine Art, a fine arts gallery in New Canaan; Casey Newbegin, a fine arts specialist with PURE Art Services, a division of PURE Insurance; and Christina Roughan, a local interior designer and design editor at several publications. Megan Gagnon, editor of athome in Fairfield County magazine, a Moffly Media publication, was on hand and Kristin Edwards of the Carriage Barn Arts Center was moderator.
Guests enjoyed the informative and lively discussion. The panelists provided a variety of interesting stories and offered helpful tips about how to live with art – from selection, transporting, installing and protecting one’s art collection.
