My Artworks, My Friends and Family - a List

As part of the exhibit, featured collectors were given a series of questions. I was asked:

    Q. What does supporting the Twin Cities art community mean to you?
    A.There's an internet meme that goes "When you buy the work of an artist. you're not just buying a thing. you're getting a piece of someone's heart, a part of their soul."  When I'm alone at home, it's like I'm surrounded by friends.

That inspired me to post this list. Compiling it brought back memories of good times, great friends and fine art. My granddaughter, Marielle Mitchell, took most of the pictures. I hope you enjoy it.

Gallery owner Jade Patrick writes:  Cassie Garner and I got to spend time in [Christopher's] home admiring the artwork he has collected from Gamut and other places and people over the years. [He] has been a supporter of the gallery since the very beginning, and has reminded us of why we do what we do on more than one occasion. He gets it. He understands how art gives meaning to everyday life.
