OCAC at the SEATTLE ART FAIR - Friday, August 4, 2017

MORNING: Friday, August 4
TOUR: The Ketcham & Hedreen Collections, 8:30am - 11:00am
An exclusive tour of two esteemed private collections at the homes of Janet Ketcham and Richard and Elizabeth Hedreen.  

Collecting art has been intrinsic to Janet Ketcham’s life over the past 25 years. Like her many other activities, it benefits from and reveals her exuberant intellectual curiosity, manifold enthusiasms, and global perspectives. While grounded in major examples of the paintings of Richard Diebenkorn, Roy Lichtenstein, and Andy Warhol, her artcollection pulses with lively contemporary works by Damien Hirst, Anish Kapoor, Julian Opie, Tom Otterness, Gerhard Richter, Yinka Shonibare, and Ai Weiwei.  

The collection of Richard and Elizabeth Hedreen has been remarkably refined over the past forty years. Ever-evolving and marked with unusual breadth, it has moved from regional Northwest art to U.S. and then European modern and contemporary masters. In recent years, it has been augmented with very choice additions of earlier European painting. Driven by a relentless quest for works of the highest quality, the Hedreen collection spans from Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres to Willem de Kooning.
