You can find out at “Through the Eyes of a Collector,” an exhibit opening Saturday, Feb. 3, 2018 and running through Feb. 28 at the Lacoste Gallery, in Concord, Ma.
The exhibit offers an insight into the art collecting practices of Steve Alpert, an avid ceramic art lover and collector for more than 40 years, according to the Lacoste invitation. Alpert has served on the board of MFA Boston, as Board Chairman of the Institute for Contemporary Art, and was founder and Chairman of Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University.
In this show, he brings together a diverse group of artists whose work ranges from studio pottery to figurative and sculptural ceramic art.
The show, which runs through February 28, represents Alpert’s vision. Its goal is to inform new generations of ceramic art fans and collectors on how to begin an astute ceramic art portfolio.
Opening Reception with Artists: Saturday, February 3, 3:00 – 5:00 PM
Panel Discussion: Ceramic Collecting for the New Generation, Sunday February 4, 2:00 PM
The exhibit, opening reception and panel discussion are free and open to the public but kindly RSVP for the panel discussion.
