The Art Society includes 200 enthusiastic members. In order to assure the quality and exclusivity of the events, this number of members should not be exceeded. The Art Society is a club for art connoisseurs and art collectors, providing a platform for members to meet, exchange ideas and discuss their interest. The Art Society therefore pays special attention to the fact that its members are established contemporary art connoisseurs. Thus collectors open the doors to their collections for other collectors…
