GoldmineInvite1.gif Friends and collectors, Michael and Sirje Gold are having a show of their collection at CalState Long Beach University Art Museum this Saturday. Locally, they are one of the hidden powers behind FOCA, an organization who underwrites artist's projects, among other things. They've been active in the LA art scene for quite some time, I always brighten up when I encounter them in the various happenings about town. Here is the description of the event from LimeLight Long Beach Events calendar:

Sirje and Michael Gold have been collecting contemporary art for more than twenty-five years. UAM Director Christopher Scoates is curating an exciting new exhibition focused around these two prominent and innovative Los Angeles collectors.

Unlike many other LA collections, the Gold's collection is a remarkable cross section of established, emerging, mid-career and undiscovered artists who have been working in the region. Their thoughtful selection of paintings, works on paper, photographs and sculpture represent an unprecedented look at the diversity of aesthetic threads and array of issues that characterize work being made in and around Los Angeles today.
