‘The Shands Collection: New Directions’

The Rev. Al Shands is a local treasure who collects local (and international) treasures. Long associated with art (his late wife Mary co-founded KMAC Museum), Shands’ collecting has resulted in a house, called Great Meadows, that is full of works. Shands wants his collection to be seen by others, either by touring his home or in exhibitions. This group show, curated by Foundation Director Julien Robson, features local artists such as Vian Sora as well as national ones like Francesca DiMattio. “Being an artist is very scary business,” said Shands. “I’m very interested in encouraging collectors and I’m hoping this exhibition will open up the door for people to realize ‘I can do that too.’”
