Art Dealers Association of America
Founded in 1962, the Art Dealers Association of America is a non-profit membership organization of the nation's leading dealers in the fine arts. Its purposes are to promote the highest standards of connoisseurship, scholarship and ethical practice within the profession and to increase public awareness of the role and responsibilities of reputable art dealers. ADAA members deal primarily in paintings, drawings, sculpture, graphics and photographs from the Renaissance to the present day. Each ADAA member is an experienced and knowledgeable dealer in the types of art he or she offers for sale. Only a handful of art dealers, all of them in New York City, joined Ralph F. Colin in establishing ADAA. Among the founding members were Alexandre P. Rosenberg, the Association's first president, and Pierre Matisse, president of ADAA from 1964 to 1966. Today, the Association has 175 member galleries in more than twenty-five cities throughout the United States.
Love the copper and will be buying the others!I have been wanting copper post cap solar lights and they are just too pricey, I found a 2 pack of inexpensive solar lights, they were brown and we all know what happens to that plastic after baking in the Sun, then it occurred to me that I had the copper and I figured I'd try it on the lights, it covered beautifully in 2 coats. I wasn't sure if I had to seal them until now, but I used Krylon Maxx Clear Satin Spray Paint on them,and to my surprise, the spray instantly turned the copper a beautiful pinkish patina that happens naturally on copper. I will be doing this on my new deck lights before they are mounted, it is really beautiful!
