Here it is. The second half of the sale you have been waiting for. Last year we sold the contents of multiple barns from the 1840's. One barn had been converted into a home by acclaimed local artist Paul Gonzalez who was an avid collector and who used one of the barns as a studio. The home has sold and now it is time to sell the contents. This sale features many of Mr. Gonzalezs' works of art and sculpture along with other artists. It is very eclectic, consisting of everything imaginable from original Cass Corridor paintings, art glass, and sculpture, architectural antiques, stained glass windows, garden ornaments, antiques, designer mid century modern, pottery, steampunk, industrial, tools, Ford concept car memorabilia, and more surprises and witchamagiggers than you can imagine. We will also be reopening the barns.
ART: This sale features many pieces of art by local artist Paul Gonzalez. Mr Gonzalez attended Wayne State University, Center for Creative Studies, and the Toledo University for Glass Blowing. He sculpted for 35 years for the Ford Design Center. In addition, he had a sculpture studio in the Cass Corridor in Detroit for 12 years where he work with other artists. In the 1980's, Mr Gonzalez open a studio in Clarkston, MI. He worked with architects in the United States and Mexico and had many commissions from private patrons and commercial firms. The artwork featured in this sale is both his and other Cass Corridor artists.
FORD MOTOR COMPANY: Mr Gonzalez worked in the Ford Design Center for 35 years. His collection of Ford memorabilia is outstanding! It gives a clear picture into the design cycle of a car from inception, to design, to production. The collection includes many rare pieces not found on their own, let alone as a group. This is truly a sale for everyone from the beginning collector to the advance collector looking for that rare and special piece.
