Art with Heart

The Ricker by Marilyn Bendell

The Ricker by Marilyn Bendell

World traveler, Olympic diver and well-known socialite Marcia Kelly’s lifelong art collection has been graciously gifted by her estate for a special art sale to benefit the CarePartners Foundation.

The golden age “it” girl had a passion for life that overflowed into her passion for art. The collection includes more than 25 works, featuring pieces by American impressionist Marilyn Bendell as well as Ms. Kelly’s own work.

Contance Richards, gallery director for the Grand Bohemian Hotel Asheville, will coordinate the presentation. “It’s a wonderful situation to have both the work of an artist and the artist’s personal art collection to exhibit together,” Ms. Richards says. “What’s particularly intriguing is the story of Ms. Kelly. Her shoe and handbag collection alone speaks to her sense of style and predilection for the interesting and unusual.”

A Judaica collection from the late Bryna Liebowitz will also be for sale.

The CarePartners Art Sale will be held October 11-14 at 105 Fairview Road in Asheville (just below ScreenDoor) with proceeds benefiting the CarePartners Foundation, a nonprofit healthcare organization. Preview Sale: 5-7pm, Thursday, 10am-7pm Friday and Saturday, 1-5pm Sunday. www.carepartners.org.
