"but that establishes one as an "Artist" because it is warehoused in a
Gallery???" - David

I spent most of Wed with Steve Compton, the author of several books on
collecting "Folk" pottery and who has a collection of same that is larger
than most museums.

He mentioned that he had been talking with a museum curator and the
conversation was about how so much of collectables of all types of art were
in the hands of private collectors rather than museums and how much of the
stuff that museums have is just stored somewhere rather than being
available for the public to see.
