The art of action and attention to place created by contemporary artists greatly moved them, and they only began buying pieces for their own personal pleasure, but also to help the artists earn a living. These two dedicated patrons of the arts collected works in oil, in ink, in stone-works that define genres yet defy labels-works that evoke the spirit of a wide open frontier and the beauty of life in the world. Since their first acquisition, a vast artistic legacy has grown—one populated by emerging artists and living legends and filled with tribal tradition and classical finesse. In building this splendid home for a part of their vast personal collection of Western and wildlife art,
Tom and Mary also have succeeded in their aim to share their vision and devotion to art with you and thousands of others.
