    “This exhibition is collaboration between me and the collectors,” says guest Curator, Robin Venuti. “I asked each collector to showme those pieces they felt most passionate about. In some cases, there was a friendly negotiation about what to include in the show, but most of the time, I could see why their picks were their favorites. From the sublime to the amusing, six different paths in collecting are represented here—six different personalities, each with a different eye and each with a different inspiration about what is of value to them.”
    The exhibition runs through June 21, 2014. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday 1:00pm –5:00pm.
