The annual Auckland Art Week has negotiated its way around the changing alert levels so that it can take place this month in locations around the city.

Would you like to start collecting art?  Or do you worry that you don't know where to begin, or how much it might cost?  Would you like to hear how inexpensive - and actually fun - it can be?

Lynn Freeman talks to Tim Melville, director of the Tim Melville Gallery, and to Sarah McCrory director of Fox/Jensen/McCrory.  They're about to give a talk about collecting art at the Tim Melville Gallery in Grey Lynn as part of this year's Art Week.

Tim and Sarah say the first rule is it doesn't have to be expensive but it should be something you love.
