Charles Muehleck started collecting Eliza Barchus’s paintings and ephemera relating to the artist’s career since his college days and now holds the largest collection on this early Oregon artist. The process of collecting also led Charles to research and learn about the many facets of this incredible artist’s life journey. What motivated him to only collect Barchus paintings? How did he collect these stunning pieces over the course of four decades? What aspects of Eliza Barchus’s prolific career and life are most fascinating and inspirational to him? Join us for this engaging conversation facilitated by Ginny Allen, art historian and author (with Jody Klevit) of Oregon Painters: Landscape to Modernism, 1859-1959
