St. Louis for Art Collectors

As any episode of "Antiques Roadshow" will attest, art can be a great investment. But the best reason to collect art is because you love it, something I suspect (because you're reading this) you already know. Every major city has its art stars, even if they are unknown to the wider world, and St. Louis is no exception. In the following galleries, you will find art at all price points from local talent to nationally recognized artists to international heavyweights. Let the acquisitions begin.
