Michael Reid strikes deal with Webb's - Art Collector

7 September 2010 | Michael Reid at Elizabeth Bay has established a trans-Tasman art alliance with New Zealand's Webb's auction house.

''The gallery, in addition to representing Webb's art auctions in Australia, will be working closely with the auction house to position contemporary New Zealand art - through private treaty - into the Australian market,'' says Reid.

''Conversely, those Australian collectors interested in consigning New Zealand and Australian art to the Kiwi market may be encouraged by a relatively modest sellers commission; the ease of shipping and an absence of a resale royalty in New Zealand.''

Reid says he has been in ongoing discussions with the Auckland-based auction house for the past two months
