The Gift of Art
From Notes on a Party
Your favorite couple is getting married. As you scroll through their wedding registry filled with the requisite china, silverware and perhaps even a blender, you wonder if any of these gifts are meaningful enough. If tradition dictates that you give something for the home, why not something for its walls? Susan Spiritus, a fine art photography dealer, works with many clients interested in purchasing art for weddings, which she points out is a personal and original gift that will only get better (and increase in value) with time.
While there is no typical purchase price for this type of gift, a popular way of buying art as a gift is as a group. Whether a set of bridesmaids or siblings, the group sending this gift should have a good sense of the couple’s personal taste. Knowing a little about their interests (surfing in Montauk) or even something sentimental about their courtship (they met in Italy) will help in selecting something that will be cherished for its beauty as well as its meaning.
The gallery can frame the photograph, include a personal note and arrange for cross-country shipping, if necessary. Alternatively, for clients that prefer the couple to personally select their own piece of art, Spiritus can create an elegant gift certificate and follow up accordingly.
