Mark Woolley offers some "CHOICE CUTS" from his private collection in a special exhibition and auction. Says Woolley, "I still have a passion for collecting and I have so much work that I wish to give some of the pieces new lives in other collections and continue to collect. I love these pieces so much but would be excited to have someone else be excited by living with them for the first time. In the grand scheme of things, collectors are essentially temporary custodians of the works they so passionately acquire. You can't take them with you, but you can share them with others and the world and find them happy homes." Collectors may either purchase the works outright at a "quick buy" price, or place bids via email to info@markwoolley.com. There will be a live auction in the gallery at a special "closing" party on SATURDAY, JULY 12, hosted by Portland personality & auctioneer Judith Rizzio, with food by Real Good Food and a specialty drink by a local craft distiller. Live auction begins at 7. If you are in the Oregon area, please come by the gallery during regular hours (Thursday-Sunday, 12-6pm) to view and bid on the works. Third Saturday Opening Reception Saturday, June 21, 5-9 pm. Hope to see you soon.
