“ AmericanStyle’s format provides established top collectors with an inside view of other collectors’ passions and their environments, while at the same time educating and nurturing new collectors and enthusiasts about the passion of collecting.” Paul Stankard, glass artist
Features: Collectors & Artists Stories are written in a “feature style” avoiding a critical or academic tone. They are designed to be readable and inspirational, spotlighting top collectors in their homes and artists in their studios.
Collectors tell us they keep back issues of AmericanStyle to use these stories as resources for future travel. They are designed to be convenient resources for collectors who are always looking for their next collecting adventure. In addition, AmericanStyle partners with collectors groups to create group arts tours.
Each summer thousands of our readers and collectors tell us about their favorite arts destinations. Over the past decade the contest has grown into a national media event covered by more than 400 newspapers, magazines and television networks. Winning cities are offered an official “Presentation to the Mayor” press event at a local gallery. Throughout the year our website provides detailed lists of galleries for every city.
Our annual Emerging Artists issue would not be possible without the advice and help of the galleries and curators that we work with on a daily basis. “ Just a day after receiving my issue of AmericanStyle with an ad I ran, my phone began ringing with calls from galleries. Three weeks later it has not stopped yet!” -Kathleen Elliot, glass artist
While most of AmericanStyle’s content is targeted to the established collector, our Fairs & Festivals issue is the perfect conduit for creating new young collectors. Today these collectors buy $500 objects- with the proper nurturing they’ll splurge on $5000+ objects tomorrow.
With bonus distribution at all of the major fall museums, auctions and gala events, the Fall Arts Preview issue provides collectors with their “social calendar” for the season.
