English Kills Art Gallery has installed a few dozen works fr om the Hoggard Wagner Art Collection in an exhibition which opens with a re ception this Friday\, September 21\, 2012 from 7 to 10 pm.

\n

Barry Ho ggard and James Wagner\, who share an interest in all of the arts\, have as sembled a large\, very personal and extremely diverse collection of visual art begun modestly by Wagner ten years before the two met in 1991.

\n

They began by acquiring a few works to enjoy in their own home\, but very s oon realized that part of that enjoyment came from supporting artists\, gal leries and non-profits which they believed should be encouraged. They were concerned\, however\, that there are limits to the number of people who cou ld see the work they took into their home (and only a fraction of the colle ction can actually be displayed there).  It was largely to make it accessib le to as many people as possible\, and for information purposes\, that they created the Hoggard/Wagner Collection website.

\n

For the same reason \, the couple enthusiastically agreed to the suggestion of English Kills th at a part of the collection itself be installed in Bushwick for six weeks.   The Gallery alone is responsible for the choice of works displayed\;  the selection was made from among the 300+ pieces visible on the walls and surf aces of their home. There are approximately 600 more in flat files.

\n

Hoggard and Wagner have never sold a single work from the collection and t hey do not intend to do so.  No sale of any kind is involved in the English Kills exhibition.
