YOUR PRIVATE COLLECTION ART GALLERY
Presents Jack Wolfsen at Last Saturday Gallery Night
March 25, 5-8pm
Jack Wolfsen, award-winning sculptor, creates his imaginative works using wood, bronze, steel and cement. Wall décor, single-standing sculptures and furniture are all part of this successful artist’s work. He is recognized for his work with barbed wire and has received many awards for his creations of old, barbed wire scavenged from Texas Ranches. His tree sculptures begin with barbed wire and are reborn in natural art.
How does Wolfsen feel as he creates each piece? “‘Enjoyment’ is the word that comes to mind,” he said. “I never get tired of the look on people’s faces when they are in awe and discover that the sculpture is made of recycled barbed wire.”
Life scenes, like “Finishing Touches,” are created with hundreds feet of wire and welds.
One of his sculptures, which contained over 3300 welds, won an award at the Texas State Fair
Art Competition. He has competed in many art shows, including the Rio Brazos Art Exhibition and the Stars Over Texas competition. Wolfsen was recently honored with ‘Best of Show” at the prestigious, juried Breckenridge Fine Art National and International competition and show in Breckenridge, Texas.
Linda Watkins, Co-owner of Your Private Collection, believes that, “Good art should make you feel something. For example, does it evoke excitement, peace, relaxation? Does it remind you of a past experience, a moment or a place? With Jack Wolfsen, one definitely feels a range of emotions.”
Galleries of Granbury—Last Saturday Gallery Night
Come celebrate Wolfsen’s art at Your Private Collection Art Gallery on March 25 as part of Galleries of Granbury’s Last Saturday Gallery Night.
The Galleries of Granbury will host “Last Saturday Gallery Night” (a free art walk) on the last Saturday of each month. All are open until 8pm with “meet the artists”, opening receptions, demonstrations, hors d’oeuvres, wine and music.

Energetically Supporting the Arts for Ten Years
It’s June 2007 and Home by Design Magazine announces “..a new exciting art gallery, featuring local and international artists, now calls Granbury home”. The gallery opened in an 80-year-old house transformed into five rooms of unique, original artworks called Your Private Collection Art Gallery. One great feature of the location was a New Orleans style courtyard garden, which was a great gathering spot for art events and wine tastings.
Stacey Watkins, co-owner and one of the featured artists, was the primary reason for opening the gallery. Stacey had invented a new medium using her knowledge of science along with resin, metals, fused glass and other materials to create works of glow-in-the-dark fantasy. The gallery was a way to introduce this unique art.
According to the other owner, Linda Watkins, “The gallery was a way to introduce Stacey’s unique art. Your Private Collection was also founded on other principles—original art by awarded artists located within a 60 mile radius and displaying a large variety of mediums since art preference is different for each individual. This allows the gallery to work one-on-one with the artists to fill any needs a client might have.”
After one year, the gallery moved from one block off Granbury’s Historical Square to its current location at 106 N. Houston on the square. The three room gallery now represents over 50 artists and has been stated as “a must see” by Southern Living Magazine.
What makes this gallery flourish at a time when many galleries are closing? It is Your Private Collection Art Gallery’s historical location in a top-destination, small town; its renown anchor artists including Soon Y Warren, Sharon Markwardt, Bob Cook, Stacey Watkins, Aaron Thane Tate and Randy Meador and frequent introduction of new artists and art. It is events, like monthly Last Saturday Gallery Nights, which combine art with fun and personal relationships between the artists, clients and guests.
The goal of the gallery is to continue helping clients to build and enjoy their own private collection. A visit to the gallery, its website, www.yourprivatecollection.com , or its Facebook page, shows the results of ten years of energetically supporting the arts.
