New Member Event – Betty Duker’s Collection

This year the PAA welcomed five new members: Suzanne Holder, Karyn Kohl, Betty
Sargent, Toi Treister, and Olga Vanegas and they were treated to a very special first
As Guardian Angel Chair Scarlett Osterling reported:
“The year's first Guardian Angel gathering was held for new members and their
sponsors on Sept. 20th. It was a fantastic opportunity to get to know each other, and
about Latin American contemporary art from Betty Duker. 
Betty provided a guided tour of much of her collection of Latin American art from 1940 –
1995.  The Duker Collection includes the works of over 57 artists from 9 countries,
including internationally known artists such as Carlos Cruz-Diez, Jesus Raphael Soto,
Julio LeParc, Gego, Lygia Clark, Lygia Pape, Helio Oiticica, Leon Ferrari and Sergio
Camargo, as well as "underknown" artists such as Martha Boto, Rogelio Polesello,
Antonio Llorens, Thomas Maldonado and Alfredo Hlito. 
What a great way to bring our new members into their first year!  Thank you Betty!!”
Thank you, Scarlett, for your report, and welcome to the PAA Suzanne, Karyn, Betty,
Toi and Olga. See you at the next event!
