Legacy and Latitude in Art Collection
Timothy Cobb Fine Arts reopens in the Marshall Building
In business since 1998—first in the Astor Hotel and then in Fox Point—TCFA is part of a family tradition of art collection dating back to 1885. Commenting on artworks on display by Cobb’s great-grandfather and his brother, the owner notes, “Every time I walk in the door, my ancestors come with me.”
Employing a European salon-style display approach, TCFA is a pocket of tranquility and taste in the midst of the bustling Third Ward. In addition to an art connoisseur, Cobb is also an orchestral conductor and has studied Zen meditation in Japan and the U.S. These influences permeate his gallery—from the musical arrangement of paintings, soothing ambient illumination and chocolate-colored walls to the expert lighting of artworks that allows viewers immediate and effortless access their native optic play. Attend the opening to take in a diverse selection from the collection.
TCFA is located in the lobby of the Marshall Building at 207 E. Buffalo St. Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and any time by appointment (complimentary parking by appointment).
“Linda Wervey Vitamvas: Indigenous Transience Farewell/Feast Welcome”
Lynden Sculpture Garden
2145 W. Brown Deer Road
Join ceramicist and Lynden’s artist in residence, Linda Wervey Vitamvas, as she disassembles one installation and introduces the next. Working with locally dug clay, the artist explores the ways in which art objects constructed from minimally processed organic materials interact with an outdoor display space. Lynden visitors are invited to take home one of the bowls created for “Indigenous Transience” and view Wervey Vitamvas’ new collaboration with Kevin Giese—an array of vessels displayed on the edge of the pond like the vestiges of a long-ago feast, Saturday, July 6, 2-5 p.m.
