BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN PRODID:iCalendar-Ruby VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:

The impulse to collect is pervasive\, especially among artis ts. Heirloom and found objects\, folk art\, vernacular photographs\, record s\, books&hellip\; find yourself in any artist's home and suddenly you&rsqu o\;re privy to a secret economy \;of intimate connections and inspirati on. Not least among artists&rsquo\; collections are works of art by colleag ues and friends. Oftentimes these items come into artists' possession throu gh counter-market means such as gifting or trades\, or occasionally through purchase via art auction fundraiser. No matter the method\, it's certain t hat there's something deeply personal\, sentimental even\, about their owne rship which distinguishes them (among other things) from major art collecto rs. \;

For Housewarming\, ADDS DONNA invited a group of arti sts with whom we have formed relationships over the past six years and aske d that in addition to contributing one of their own works\, that they also lend a piece from their private collection. In this way we hope to draw att ention to the role of artists as collectors as well as examine the intricat e web of influence they're a part of.

At a time when support mec hanisms are hard to come by\, we look to each other for encouragement to co ntinue the projects that sustain us. As ADDS DONNA moves into its new resid ence at 3252 W. North Ave\, we invite you to help us celebrate the artists who have made us and others feel at home.
