Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Buying Art from Redd

Seren Morgan-Roberts


Once Blathers has announced that he wishes to begin displaying art in the museum, a suspicious figure named Redd will appear on your island. This will usually happen on the following day to Blathers’ announcement, but this isn’t guaranteed.

Buying Art from Redd

When you first encounter Redd, he will be wandering around your island. When you next encounter him, though, he will be in his dodgy boat that he docks up on the secret island on the north coast of your island.

When you meet Redd for the first time, the art he offers you will always be a real art piece. However, in the future, it’ll be important to check the art to see if they’re fake or not. Whenever you buy an art piece from Redd, it’ll cost you 4,980 Bells with the cousin discount that Redd gives you.

Redd gives you the painting for only 1% of the original asking price. A bargain?

Donate to Blathers

Once you’ve bought your first piece of art, you should head over to your museum and donate it to Blathers. Giving over your first piece of art will mean that Blathers can open a new Art exhibition in the museum!

Tomorrow, the museum will be closed for renovations, so it will take two days for your new island Art Gallery to open.
