Meet The Mackey Twins and learn about collecting the works of artists of color.
Wednesday, May 9th @ 2:00PM, Treasure Room Gallery.
Join Karen and Sharon Mackey (Mackey Twins Art Gallery, Inc.) as they discuss the current exhibition, the artists and the current state of affairs as it relates to artists of color. Tour the exhibition with the twins , ask questions and learn about creative ways to collect.
Mackey Twins Art Gallery, Inc. is more than the identical images of the owners. Karen is currently Vice President of Government and Community Affairs; and twin sister Sharon is Executive Director of Continuing Education, both at The City College of New York. Over 35 years ago they were public high school teachers, and that’s when the love of art began. They visited art galleries weekly and spent hours perusing and ultimately purchasing prints. As they learned more, they recognized the value and responsibility of acquiring original work; and eventually started their own business in the form of a home gallery.
Their commitment has remained consistent since they started the gallery about 15 years ago:
• to develop communities of collectors by exposing all races to artists of color
• to educate on the responsibility of supporting artists and
• to create options for ownership of original art work.
