Establishing the Value of Art

“According to the IRS, fair market value should represent the price that would be paid by a willing buyer to a willing seller. ...It is not uncommon to insure works of art with numbers slightly higher than fair market value, bearing in mind that depending on the type of policy you have, the insurer may, if there is a claim, argue that the insured amount is excessive.

Michael Findlay's 2012 book, The Value of Art

Genevieve Cotter - On The Market

Genevieve Cotter (1936-2017)

Genevieve's primary gallery representative: Somerhill Gallery, began in 1991; with over five featured one-person exhibitions as well as inclusion in several group shows, participated in public exhibitions: UNC-CH MBA exhibit, Durham Art Guild solo exhibit, Duke University; taught at UNC-CH, Minnesota Museum of Art, Austin Community College. Somerhill's records reflect close to 250 individual collectors and many corporate collections, including Glaxosmithkline, Suntrust, selected private collection: author Nicholas Sparks.

Genevieve herself once remarked
"I have come to focus in my own work on the sensuous quality of paint. My method of painting amplifies the labor intensiveness of my content and lends itself to the direct involvement with material. My work deals with themes of earth and water and a sense of place"

One's duty is to feel what is great, cherish the beautiful,
and to not accept the conventions of society
with the ignominy that it imposes upon us.
