Collect Call 2: Exploring Art Patronage

Opening Reception:

Friday, September 25, 2015, 6-9pm

Show Runs:

September 25 - October 24

Collect Call 2 is a celebration of local collectors that champion art on a personal level. SooVAC has invited several local collectors to share artworks from their private collections, offering the public the opportunity to view works signifying a lifelong commitment to the arts and the artists that have ignited their passion for collecting.

Participating Collectors: Anonymous Collector,Todd Bockley, Jay Coogan, Jennifer Jorgensen & Steve Imhoff, Masami Kawazato & Aaron Merrill,  Benjamin Meents & Chet Ritchie, Dr. Herman J. Milligan Jr., Anne Jin Soo Preston & Mark Preston, Eric Recktenwald, Kevin S. Ringdahl & Randy Cernohous, Robyne Robinson and Michael & John Sammler-Jones.

The role of the arts collector is vital and complex; it is an investment in the life and legacy of the artists that find a place in their collections. This exhibition offers an insight into the relationships forged between collectors and artists, presenting a sampling of artwork that inspired these art lovers to find a space in their homes to live with the work on a daily basis.

Many of the works in Collect Call 2 were acquired directly from the artist, frequently unviewed in a public exhibition, providing audiences an opportunity to experience these works for the first time. Each of these collections offers a variety and richness derived from the diverse personal visions of each collector.
