TWO COLLECTORS FIFTY YEARS APART

WE REGRET THIS SALON IS POSTPONED. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR A NEW DATE.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 13, 2018 (2:00 PM - 3:30 PM)

Discuss art collecting with two self-educated collectors who each started at age 30, fifty years apart. Diana Zlotnick has amassed an important collection of 500+ works for nearly 60 years, some of which have been loaned or donated to museums throughout California. Anika Jackson began collecting 10 years ago and today, with 50+ works, continues to develop her collection and acquisition acumen. Hear fabulous art stories, and learn about their focuses, sources, differences in collecting, and how they've built collections on instincts and intuition, without unlimited financial resources or a formal art education.

Diana Zlotnick began collecting in the late 1950s. Now at age 90, she continues to visit galleries and artists, encouraging others on fixed incomes to trust their instincts to collect art. She was an early collector of artists such as Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha, Wallace Berman, John Baldessari, Channa Horwitz, Llyn Foulkes, John McLaughlin, George Herms and many others, recognizing their merit often before other collectors had caught on. In addition to lecturing, curating, and publishing an art newsletter, she has served on the acquisition committee for the Laguna Art Museum and the steering committee for the J. Paul Getty Museum's Pacific Standard Time: Crosscurrents in L.A. Painting and Sculpture, 1950-1970. Many of her works have been loaned to and/or donated to the J. Paul Getty Museum, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Orange County Museum of Art, California State University, and University of Southern California, among others.

Anika Jackson's first art piece was acquired for her at age 17 by her father, a college professor, who exposed her at a young age to exhibits and other cultural events. This was the impetus years later for acquiring art on her own, primarily in support of local artists. A resident of Los Angeles and Houston, Anika began collecting in the mid-2000's through an organic process via galleries, events, and artist studio visits. She has served on numerous non-profit boards, and has been honored for her work in the arts, and as a community volunteer.  She was the 2017 Art of Leadership Community Leader Honoree, the 2017 Houston Grand Opera Ovation Award recipient, and the 2014 "Inspirational Leader" award recipient by the Los Angeles Foundation for Second Chances.
