Collectable Art

The buzz generated by International Art Centre's Collectable Art auctions reflects the popularity of this sale: an event at which seasoned connoisseurs and budding collectors alike converge to appreciate one of the most eclectic and diverse offerings available to the market. Because this auction specifically caters to the more affordable end of the market - generally presenting works valued at $5,000 and less (many of which are offered without reserve), this is an exciting opportunity to unearth some real treasures. The Collectable Art sale offers a number lower-priced works from highly-sought after artists in print and edition form, as well as quality works from artists whose presence on the secondary market is just beginning to crystallise.
