Listen here: The Bennetts : Collectors with Heart
Passionate, approachable and smart, the Bennetts were a pleasure to chat with. Dr Elaine Melotti Schmidt and her husband Steven Bennett have gathered a collection of over 150 artworks by figurative artists all of whom are women. They have also created the Bennet prize which is a biennial $50,000 award focused on helping of female artists in the early stages of their careers. They had lots of insights about the art world from the collectors perspective.
