Art Conversations: Buying Northwest - A Collector's Perspective


The Portland Art Dealers Association  is pleased to present Art Conversations: Buying Northwest - A Collector's Perspective by keynote speaker, John R. Hoke III, Chief Design Officer at Nike. This event is sponsored by Oregon Arts Commission, the Contemporary Art Council and the Northwest Art Council of the Portland Art Museum and Argyle Winery.

Hoke will give a presentation sharing his experiences, approach, and life-long passion for collecting art and design. Attendees will hear directly from a local collector about how he makes decisions when adding to his collection, the scope of what he collects, and how his collecting practices have evolved over time. Hoke’s presentation will be followed by a moderated Q&A.

This is the launch event for PADA's Art Conversations 2018, a monthly series of gallery talks focused on art collecting and the arts ecology of our city, which launches on March 13 and continues through December 2018. A schedule of talks will be released at the March 13th launch event.
