One for the collection


Artblog pal and contributor Rob Matthews emailed us the news that his triptych drawing “Assumption at Ridglea,” the big piece in his solo exhibit at Gallery Joe last year was purchased by PAFA. We are tooooo excited about this!! The piece, graphite on paper, 48 x 54 inches, is a knock-out of draftsmanship and content and I hope the Academy can put the work on display soon so we can all see it again. I love an institution that collects from its local pool of talent. And PAFA’s been doing an excellent job: Randall Sellers, the 2004 PPC portfolio, Jim Houser are all part of the institution’s collection now. Congratulations, everyone!
