Audrey is a leading collector of works by self-taught artists of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. A Limitless Vision: The Collection of Audrey B. Heckler, shown at Sara Kay Gallery, featured over 30 rare and important paintings, drawings, and sculptures from Audrey’s prestigious collection, many of which were exhibited to the public for the first time.
Topics of conversation include Sara Kay's tribute to Audrey as a female art collector, Audrey's unwavering commitment to outsider art, and a discussion of how her collection traces the development of outsider art from the 20th century to today. Audrey provides insight to the exhibited works which span a wide range of subject matter, materials, voices and visions by celebrated American artists, such as Martín Ramírez, David Butler, and James Castle, as well European artists Adolf Wölfli, Augustin Lesage, and Aloise Corbaz.
