Interact Encourages Collectors to Arrange & Re-arrange works by Ten Different
Contemporary Artists to Create an Individual Collection
Bethesda, MD (April 25, 2011) – Kaller Fine Arts present Interact, an exhibition of works by ten different contemporary artists designed to encourage collectors to create individual collections. An opening reception will be held Thursday, May 5, 2011, 7:30-9:30. The gallery will also be open Saturday – Sunday, May 7-8, 1 – 4PM, and also by appointment. Gallery owner Candace Kaller will exhibit a wide variety of intimately sized, inexpensive works – more than 90% are below $1000 – in different media and will provide collectors opportunities to arrange and re-arrange the works to curate their own personal collections. The gallery setting, in a private home, further helps collectors to envision the collection they create in their own home.
“The goal of this exhibition is for collectors to physically create – or rather – curate a collection of works that represents their own interests, passions and fascinations. This will be different from other gallery and museum experiences, where touching the work is not encouraged,” said Kaller. “The works we’re showing are sized and priced for today’s homes and lifestyles. More importantly, this exhibition offers collectors an opportunity to express themselves though a collection of work created by an important group of very talented artists.”
Works will be exhibited by the following:
1. Tracey Adams: Encaustic and collage works ranging in size from 16” x 16” to 40” x 40” panels. Adams’ works are in the following collections: Crocker Museum of Art, Sacramento, New England Conservatory of Music, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Tucson Museum of Art.
