Welcome to our special feature spotlighting 18 art collectors from Long Island to La Jolla.
Some are relative newcomers to the collecting world, while others have been gathering artworks for more than 45 years. The collections range in size from a modest 30 artworks all the way up to 650.
We hope they will inspire you to start a collection of your own or add something new to your treasure trove.
