“After years of adding to our own art collection with Ranch work, participating in Ranch programming and making new friends, Jeff and I are excited to be the leaders of the National Council. Please join us in supporting this fantastic organization.” – Erica Keswin, National Council Chair

All that Anderson Ranch has accomplished and the opportunities it provides wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our National Council.

National Council members toured top gallery shows in New York City led by expert art advisor, Lowell Pettit. The tour was followed by a cocktail reception with artist Angel Otero in his Brooklyn studio.

“We had a very enjoyable and informative time for a portion of two days in New York City with Anderson Ranch. Contemporary art maven, Lowell Pettit, gave us a most entertaining whirlwind tour of some fine top-tier galleries showing hot established as well as emerging artists, and regaled us with his clip-speed storytelling of the art world’s most colorful people and places. And a morning visit to the Brooklyn studio of soaring young artist, Angel Otero, was a great excursion made possible by the Kavi Gupta Gallery of Chicago, who thought Anderson Ranch’s collectors important enough to send the dealer to Brooklyn to greet us.”  — Allen & Kelli Questrom
