We have been thinking about the 34 year history of Collector’s Choice, how many artists have participated (thousands!) and how many collectors started and added to their collection year in and year out. We have reached out to some of our friends who have purchased at Collector’s Choice to ask them about a particular work of art—we are posting their stories on our blog over the next few weeks. All of the artists referenced will be returning to Greenhill this year. Enjoy their post, and we invite you to become a collector at this years’ Collector’s Choice!
We were first struck by the familiarity of the landscape in this painting. For Melissa, “At Moses Cone Park” evokes memories of her grandparents’ farm in Arkansas (nowhere near Moses Cone Park); for me, it recalls family trips to the North Carolina mountains (including Moses Cone Park) from my childhood. The greens and browns and grays fit well with the soothing tones in our den, where this painting hangs on a gallery wall with black and white photographs, pen and ink drawings, and a broadside of a poem about barbecue by Jake Adam York.
