Small paintings and works of art hold all the fun for that prospective buyer taking those first steps into art collection. But even for the seasoned collector, an event like Gilcrease Museum’s Collectors’ Reserve still holds the thrill of acquiring something that could prove essential to the fabric of American fine art. The annual event, which raises funds for the museum at 1400 N. Gilcrease Museum Road, Tulsa, opens this weekend with exhibition of pieces by 70 artists – pieces measuring 16”x 20” and even miniatures ranging in a variety of subject, style and medium. The artworks will be sold at a Nov. 1 sale at the museum, but the pieces can be viewed through the Nov. 4. Collectors’ Reserve: Small Works Art Exhibition and Sale will also feature two artists demonstration events – painters Jerry Ricketson at 11 a.m. Oct. 26 and Virginia Stroud at 11 a.m. Oct. 31. Museum admission is $5-$8. Opening day hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Go to gilcrease.utulsa.edu to see the complete schedule and other details.
