The Board Members Collect show is an opportunity for members of the Museum’s Board to display art from their own personal collections in the Museum for the public to see. Next to each piece is a description of why the collector selected the work of art and where they found inspiration within it. The exhibit is a unique opportunity for the Museum’s board members to connect with the public and highlight the works of artists both familiar and new to visitors.
Rooster Tile by Wendy Thompson
Included in this collection is a special piece from the estate of Kay Moxness, a former original Board Member of the Museum, entitled "Drama Before A Storm" by the Museum's late founder Michael Gibbons. The original work itself, a sweeping Arizona landscape, was bought by Moxness from Gibbons with the purchase being mutually beneficial to the Museum and the Oregon Cultural Trust by assigning parts of the proceeds of the purchase to the institutions as donations. In doing so, it was a boon for all involved and shows how purchasing art can help local organizations and institutions. Kay Moxness loved Michael Gibbons’ work and believed strongly in the formation of the Yaquina River Museum of Art to bring fine arts to the local community.
During the Opening Reception on March 4th & 5th from Noon-4PM wine & cheese will be offered to the public while
Niki Price, the Lincoln City Board Chair of the Oregon Cultural Trust, will give a presentation at 2PM on Saturday the 4th about tax credits and donations such as the purchase of "Drama Before A Storm" and the beneficial impact such financial contributions have on state and local non-profit institutions as well as other grant and funding opportunities offered by the Oregon Cultural Trust.
See Price's presentation and the Board Members Collect exhibit during the opening reception of March 4th, and enjoy the exhibit through the month of March.
