Move to France
As we plan our eventual move to France, (sadly, with no clear or immediate path there yet), we are offering the gallery's collecting community some finely selected works of art we have enjoyed for many years. Yes, dear friends, this is not the "Salon des Refuses," this is bare-knuckled opportunity knocking at your door.

About the Collection
As our collection developed over more than forty years of acquisitions, it branched into many different areas. My initial collection was of paintings and works on paper by Northwest artists and prints by more nationally known artists. In lean times, I sold some of these beloved parts of my collection to support the gallery.

When I found myself in a long-term, sustaining relationship, we began to collect in other areas of interest. Larry Yocom and I bought American patchwork quilts; folk art in various forms, particularly furniture; Japanese erotica called shunga filled our guest bathroom and then our guest bedroom. As we progressed, we created smaller collections of Masonic furniture, vernacular photography, and Japanese imari pottery. We bought furniture, some from the esteemed designer Terry Hunziker for our next home. When we bought our weekend cabin in Index, we bought more folk art furniture. The cabin was sold in 2019 to buy the château.

While major parts of our collection are moving with us to France, we are letting go of many of these other works of art, antiques, prints, dishes, erotica, collectibles, furniture, folk art, and all kinds of collectible treasures from our travels. Bits and parts of all of these collections and categories are included here.

There are more than 200 works of art in this sale in our spacious 4th gallery. It looks like a very full, yet decidedly upscale, estate sale but in a gallery setting with good lighting and excellent display efforts. We took as our cue from the old Suyama Space "garage" sales.

Many artworks were bought through art auctions for local non-profits such as SOIL, or Artist Trust, so profits from sales by many Northwest artists will be directed back to these much needed institutions.

And, of course, like any collector, some objects were bought at a particular moment of interest and now can be passed on to others. All of them are interesting and captivating pieces by an extraordinary group of artists.

Now we hope you will have the opportunity to see these artworks, online or in person, and enjoy them yourselves. —Greg Kucera
