JANET SEIZ: ARTIST AS COLLECTOR

THURSDAY, MAY 21, DURHAM

SUNTRUST GALLERY AT THE DURHAM ARTS COUNCIL—Andy Warhol collected cookie jars. Rembrandt accumulated seashells. Glass artist Dale Chihuly can't resist Native American baskets. Frequently, makers of the highest order are also collectors, and those collections feed their making in fascinating ways. Art historian Janet Seiz, who has taught at many universities—most recently, North Carolina A&T State University—talks about the relationship between collecting and creating as part of the Durham Art Guild's lecture series "Art for All." The SunTrust Gallery is on the ground floor of the Durham Arts Council building. 6:30 p.m., $10 (free for DAG members), 120 Morris St., Durham, 919-560-2787, www.durhamartguild.org. —Chris Vitiello
