Art appreciators fall into several categories.  I categorize them by what I see is their relationship to the art.  What's fun for you?

Can't pass up an opportunity to walk through an Art Gallery or exhibition
Goes to Art Openings and outdoor art shows
Visits Art Museums at every opportunity
Reads press reviews and written materials about art

Educates themselves about art through discussions with others
Loves meeting and talking with artists about painting
Attends art lectures and talks about the subject at the next dinner party
Likes art that provides opportunity for conversation

Engages with art as a journey of self-discovery
Identifies with the deeper meaning of artworks
Learns about themselves from what they like and don't like
Enjoys art that brings memory and legacy

Chooses to purchase original art and bring it into their home
Knows that collecting art can be as creative as the work of the artist
Values the time spent in all of the above pursuits
May choose a theme or a focus for their collection
Loves the energy, mystery, creativity or peace that a new artwork can provide
