To compliment The Bold & The New exhibition the JNAAG is bringing together enthusiastic art collectors John Oravec & Marisa Bernardi, private gallery owner Michael Gibson, and artist James Kirkpatrick. The panel will discuss the unique relationship that forms between an artist and a collector, the role that a collector and gallery can play in the life of an artist, and delve into the back story behind the London Room purchase. The discussion will touch on topics of collecting unconventional art, how to live and display a contemporary art collection in your home, along with why it can be important for donors to give works to public art galleries. Free. Give what you can. RSVP to Ann Helps at ann.helps [@] county-lambton.on.ca or 519-336-8127 ext. 3226.
