We curated a summer exhibition,  Self-taught Art By Any of Its Names, at the  Reece Museum, Johnson City, Tennessee which included works by 22 artistswhom we have represented.  We were pleased that following the exhibition the Reece purchased two works for their permanent collection:  JJ Cromer’swork “Blue Knows All the Words”, 2014  and William Cross’s stone sculpture, “Lamb of God,” 2007.  Reece also eagerly accepted a large scale etching,“Rider Coming,” 1978 by Paul Lancaster into their permanent collection.

There has been growing interest in the Sterling Strauser Collection and Gallery which we were instrumental in founding at East Stroudburg State University.  The objective was to honor this significant American Modernist artist along with his wife Dorothy, a gifted artist in her own right for their considerable contributions, especially to the field of folk and outsider art.  ESU’s Kemp Library has placed information on-line including several interviews which discuss various aspects of the effort and which also speak to Strauser’s art and life.
