African art collector Charles Derby will offer commentary and personal anecdotes about his forty years of collecting and acquiring the objects on display in this exhibition.

Derby has developed a substantial collection, less by purchasing at the high end of the market than by exercising his well trained eye to spot remarkable artworks that have taken less traveled paths.

His talk at UMCA will reveal his deep knowledge and infectious enthusiasm.

Thursday, October 26, 5:00–6:00 p.m. 



The University Museum of Contemporary Art (UMCA) is located on the lower of the UMass Amherst Fine Arts Center. Directions to the Fine Arts Center
