MICHAEL REID STRIKES DEAL WITH WEBB'S
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
