Brigitte and Henning Freybe will show work that might not be shown otherwise.
A new public art gallery opening Saturday in North Vancouver is dedicated to showing the work of private collectors.
It’s called Griffin Art Projects and is an initiative of Brigitte and Henning Freybe, two of Metro Vancouver’s major art collectors. The opening exhibition features work from the couple’s private collection as well as the collection of Kathleen and Laing Brown. Both the Freybes and the Browns live on the North Shore and have been collecting art for more than 40 years.
In an interview in the new gallery, the Freybes talked about why they started Griffin Art Projects and why they collect art.
