Art Collectors Talk About Favorite Things

Jun 28, 2012

The West Central Illinois Arts Center in Macomb asked art collectors to contribute a piece for display in its new exhibit. The artwork is accompanied by short narratives that explain its significance to the owner.

The show is called A Few Of Our Favorite Things. More than 30 works are exhibited. They will remain on display through the end of July.

The show includes oil paintings, watercolors, a piece of fiber art and more. The stories explaining why art lovers bought the pieces are as varied as art itself.

News Director Rich Egger attended the opening reception to talk to some of the contributors and put together an audio montage that you can listen to on this page.

The WCIAC is open Fridays, 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm and Saturdays, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm.
