World-Renowned Artwork from The David Anderson Charitable Trust Offered in Unprecedented Western New York Sale

Proceeds from private collection to benefit 13 community, arts and educational organizations

Buffalo, NY -- January 14, 2013 -- Dean Brownrout Modern/Contemporary is honored to announce "The David Anderson Charitable Trust Collection: A sale of original prints to benefit Western New York community organizations," which will take place on Sunday, May 5, 2013 at The Center for the Arts, University at Buffalo, from 1 to 6 p.m.

The proceeds of the sale will be divided, according to David Anderson's specific instructions, among the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens Society, Buffalo History Museum, Buffalo Museum of Science, Buffalo Prep, Buffalo Zoo, Burchfield Penney Art Center, Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center, Nichols School, The Park School of Buffalo, SPCA Serving Erie County, University at Buffalo Foundation to benefit the Anderson Gallery, and Westminster Presbyterian Church.

The sale of approximately 400 works on paper includes prints by Karel Appel, Norman Bluhm, James Brooks, Christo, Jim Dine, Claire Falkenstein, Sam Francis, Michael Goldberg, David Hayes, John Hultberg, Paul Jenkins, Lester Johnson, Jules Olitski, Gio Pomodoro, Clayton Pond, Ludwig Sander, George Segal, Julian Stanczak, Antoni Tapies, Walasse Ting, and Mark Tobey, among many others.

The quality of this collection highlights the discerning taste of David K. Anderson (1935-2009), an internationally recognized art dealer, collector and philanthropist. This one-day sale is a rare, five-hour opportunity for the public to select and purchase from this world-class private collection.

Anderson had deep connections with Western New York. His mother, Buffalo native Martha Jackson (1907-1969), was one of the 20th century's most important art dealers. Raising her son in New York City, Jackson instilled in him a lifelong love of art.

Anderson chose to attend UB in the 1950s. He then returned to New York City, first working at his mother's eponymous gallery, then, in 1959, opening the David Anderson Gallery downstairs. Devoted to works on paper, his gallery played a leading role in establishing an original, fine-art print market, often commissioning, publishing and showing prints by artists in conjunction with their painting exhibitions one flight up.

For the next two decades, Anderson's impact on the art world was felt internationally. Opening a gallery in Paris (1961), he introduced works by American artists to Europe. He returned to the Martha Jackson Gallery in 1967, and operated it into the 1980s. Near the end of this period, Anderson reintegrated himself into the fabric of Western New York life, moving back to Buffalo to raise his family.

His philanthropic contributions to Western New York are legion. He established the Anderson Gallery in 1991--a state-of-the-art exhibition space in Buffalo's University Heights district--and ran it as a commercial gallery until 2000, at the same time forming a significant private art collection. The gallery's street address, One Martha Jackson Place, was created in tribute to his mother and his family's legacy in the region. In 2000, he gifted the entire building and a large part of his private collection to UB.

Anderson's vision for the disposition of the Charitable Trust Collection was that the artworks within it would be displayed and enjoyed. To that end, he intended that the art be affordable, so that individuals from the WNY community could acquire original artwork with a stellar provenance. Many of the works for sale are from the vital period in the 1960s when Anderson was working in close conjunction with his mother.

In addition to his desire for the art prints to be personally enjoyed, Anderson also left instructions that this private collection, and its proceeds, be shared and benefit as many people and regional institutions as possible. This instinct reflects values inspired by his family and his lifetime of art-filled enjoyment and promotion. Anderson's generosity and commitment to Western New York are part of his legacy.

Admission to the event is free, and there is plenty of free parking at the Center for the Arts for this Sunday afternoon event.

All items for sale at this event are from The David Anderson Charitable Trust Collection, and are not derived from any public museum collection, including the Anderson Gallery and UB Art Galleries.

  • My boyfriend left me for another girl for some silly reasons. He keeps telling me that I am nothing to him. He said he wants to be with the other girl. that he has no feeling for me anymore. This started more than one month ago. By this time he also speaks to me but not in his own mood or to rebuild our relationship. He does so because I request him to be with me at least for some hours or some minute… we talk only once …but I can’t stay without him. I want him back.. I was really worried and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Lord Zuma can help get ex lover back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do, and I did it then he did a Love spell for me. Some hours later, my boyfriend really called me and told me that he misses me so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day, with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pain he caused me when he left. Then from that day, our relationship was now stronger than how it was before, All thanks to Lord Zuma. he is so powerful and I decided to share my happiness on the internet that Lord Zuma is real. if you are here and you need your ex lover back or save your marriage fast. Do not cry anymore, contact Lord Zuma now. Here’s his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or WhatsApp him: +1 506 800 1647
