Howard Community College Gallery Talk with Collectors
In 2008, A Collecting Affair! was created to promote art collecting, featuring local collectors and the artists they collect. This year the collecting tradition is continued with a slightly different focus: Artists, who also collect artwork, were asked to select pieces from their own collections and to talk about their dual viewpoints as both artist and collector.
