Purchase Award Collection
Brand Associates purchases an outstanding work of art at each annual Brand Associates Exhibition of Works on Paper to house in the permanent collection. These pieces are not for sale but are available on loan for temporary display purposes. In 2012 the Brand Associates renamed the collection the “Jane Friend Purchase Award Collection” in honor of the co-founder of the organization and founder of the Associates’ Annual juried art exhibition, now in its forty-forth year. Read Jane Friend’s biography. The annual exhibition Friend ran for 35 consecutive years has steadily increased in size and diversity and includes work of both emerging and established artists. The Brand Associates are extremely proud of our roster of distinguished jurors. Read Jane Friend’s biography.
