August 12, 2015

Ochi Gallery is pleased to present “Life is long. Art Is Longer. Protecting and Planning Your Art Legacy,” a panel discussion featuring Xiliary Twil, President and Principle of Art Asset Management Group; Jill Eshman, Jill Eshman Law; and Mark Eshman, Chairman of ClearRock Capital LLC.

Developing an art collection requires time, energy, resources and most of all, passion.  It is often difficult for collectors and artists to contemplate the significance and worth of their assets during their lifetimes, let alone the impact and consequences of the inevitable disposition of their collections. With advances in technology and communication, the art market has never been more dynamic and accessible. However, the necessity of art legacy planning is more crucial than ever.

In order to provide the most beneficial information regarding the management and protection of your collection, our panelists will explore the changing trends in collection management and valuation practices within the art market, and the myriad approaches to art legacy planning for both collectors and artists. The discussion will include an overview of art appraisals, art insurance and the prevention of financial loss, the pros and cons of donating and gifting, the various trends in art lending and the consideration of art as an asset.
