About The Exhibition

Great collections are built with patience, love, dedication, a desire to learn, and a guiding vision. Traditionally, museums build collections in an effort to provide their audience with either a comprehensive art historical overview or an in-depth examination of a particular subject. Selecting objects is a collective process, in which many voices influence the acquisition of each object. Private collectors assemble art works based on their own desires, and often as a personal expression of their own interests and curiosity. Ultimately, a fundamental goal or vision guides the collecting practices of both the museum and the private collector. Point of View III explores how materials, techniques and themes guide collectors in achieving their vision. Works collected by glass artist Harvey Littleton, wood artist Randy Shull and Hedy Fischer, and ceramist Mark Hewitt are featured.
