48th Collectors Show and Sale

November 11, 2016 – January 8, 2017

Organized by the Arkansas Arts Center

The Collectors Show and Sale is an annual Arkansas Arts Center tradition that brings the vibrant New York gallery scene to Little Rock. Arkansas Arts Center Executive Director Todd Herman and Arts Center curators carefully select the finest drawings and contemporary craft from prominent New York galleries. All works are for sale and vary in price, ranging from under $1,000 up to $95,000.

This year’s exhibition features artwork carefully curated from twenty galleries throughout New York City, from the Upper East Side and Midtown to Chelsea and the Lower East Side. These include such venerable establishments as Driscoll-Babcock Galleries, Godel & Co. Fine Art, and Kraushaar Galleries—all specializing in 19th- and 20th-century American art—to several dealing in international contemporary art. Among the latter are first-time participants, Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe, as well as returning galleries Danese/Corey, George Adams Gallery, Muriel Guepín Gallery and McKenzie Fine Art, among others.

If you’re looking for that unique gift for someone special this holiday season, consider purchasing an original work of art from the Collectors Show and Sale. A portion of the proceeds from each sale benefits the programs of the Arkansas Arts Center
