Take 10: Collectors’ Circle 10th Anniversary celebrates the generosity of the Asheville Art Museum’s Collectors’ Circle, a membership group that encourages the exchange of ideas and interests, art learning, connoisseurship and collecting. As a vibrant and critical source of support, they are dedicated to growing the Museum’s Permanent Collection through annual gifts of artwork, selected and presented in partnership with the curatorial staff. The Collectors’ Circle also supports the long-term growth of the Museum’s acquisition funds to strategically purchase art. The Circle promotes the Museum’s mission to collect, preserve and interpret American art of the 20th and 21st centuries. This exhibition presents a wide variety of gifts to the Museum by this dynamic group and includes works of art from the Circles’ first 10 years.
