A Message from the Owner
Over the course of nineteen years, the collectors who lived here accumulated collections of visual art, books (notably a collection of poetry), tableware, and other objects.
Most of these works have a clear provenance: they were purchased at galleries, auctions, and from the artists themselves. Where feasible, we have printed out information about these works.
All prints have UV-reflective glass and matching black frames (except where already-framed when purchased). All water colors have high quality wooden frames; the Surendorf watercolors are framed in cherry wood.
The visual art collecting began with folk / outsider art.

2. Mose Tolliver, two portraits: George and Martha Washington. House paint on 15” x 16” wood panel. These are earlier works, pre-collaborative, not painted directly for a customer. Martha has a red nose and smaller goatee.
