Art collection on display in Dassel

DASSEL, MN – The reason behind Kurtis Meyer’s art collection is simple: art makes him happy.

Meyer’s art collection has been growing for the last three decades, and he claims that any art found around the home prior to that moved in with his wife, Paula, who collects art as well.

Meyer’s more serious attitude toward art surfaced while he was an interim executive director of a “very fine” art museum.

“At that point, in 1988, I figured I better up my game,” Meyer noted.

A “relatively small” portion of that re-vamped collection, “Vases and Vessels; Bouquets and Botanicals,” will be exhibited at the Dassel History Center and Ergot Museum July 7 through Saturday, Aug. 25.

Meyer will give a presentation on his collection at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 4 at the history center.

This will be the fourth exhibition of the Meyers to be displayed at the history museum.

“One point I hope comes through in this exhibit is that art can and should be integrated into our daily lives,” Meyer stated. “For example, a coffee cup, a serving bowl, a simple pitcher, a modest vase. We’ve collected quite a number of pieces consistent with this integration-into-daily-living theme.”

One aspect of art Kurtis Meyer hopes to get across with his collection is that it can be integrated into daily living, such as through a plate, vase, mug, etc.
