How does one acquire a passion for collecting, and particularly, for collecting works of art? Picasso believed that “art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” Are we seeking a moments of serenity? Are we looking to wash away the dust?
For this exhibition, St. Louis Collects: A Passion for Contemporary Craft, Craft Alliance presents an inside look at some of most distinguished craft collections in St. Louis. For 50 years, Craft Alliance has been providing the community, both regionally and nationally, a view of contemporary work in craft. In celebration of this 50th anniversary, St. Louis Collects honors not only the artists who enhance our everyday lives, but the collectors whose passion for these works of arts are honored, loved and treasured over time.
