Control Issues
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector Pandemic lifestyle grates on a person. Of course, at this point in winter, everything grates on a person, and as the anniversary of a year in shutdown rolls around for many of us, it grates all the more. Many aspects of this are, as the kids would often say ... (Read More)

Spinning a Nostalgic Yarn
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector We are doing it again—we’re guest co-curating an exhibition. What had started out as a small show about one Ohio folk artist has blossomed into a major loan exhibition scheduled for early in 2022 at the Decorative Arts Center of Ohio in Lancaster, Ohio. The folk artist in ... (Read More)

To Price or Not to Price
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector Even as you read this, doctors and nurses are administering vaccines. We can finally begin to believe that there is a life out there beyond the toilet-paper-hoarding fugue state that we have all been brumating in for nearly a year now. That life had stopped seeming like a ... (Read More)

All We Have
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector In trying times, we find joy in small or unexpected places. One of our unexpected joys in the past seven months (which have felt like three and a half decades) is a weekly video chat that our younger child has with his cousin by cell phone. She is ... (Read More)

Waiting for the Light
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector Usually about this time of year, we would turn in a travelogue of sorts. Light, we imagine, entertaining, we hope, the kind of thing you want to read about someone else doing because you would have more sense than to do it yourself. One of these crisp, bright ... (Read More)

Plan B
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector If we have learned anything from the past few months (please, let us have learned something), it might be that our plans are not plans. Our plans are all too often more like ideas. We have ideas about what we want, ideas about how things will go, and ... (Read More)

Collector’s Lens
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector Sometimes we like to muse about what we would do if independently wealthy. We would buy our friends a lot of “This made me think of you” gifts, we would probably have an array of interesting business cards printed just for laughs, and we might hand over mowing ... (Read More)

Experience vs. Outcome
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector As this isolated strangeness grinds on, more and more we realize that we do not miss many big things. What we miss are the little things—shaking hands, seeing smiles, giving hugs. You know, the good old days of being able to run errands without masks, sanitizer, wipes, and ... (Read More)

Take a (Different) Seat
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector We have a large window in the eat-in area of our kitchen that overlooks the driveway, which is surrounded by a head-high concrete retaining wall. A seat here offers a vantage point for watching the kids play and interact, and Hollie was doing just that this spring when ... (Read More)

We Don’t Know
by Hollie Davis and Andrew Richmond

The Young Collector Humans are really bad at not knowing exactly what to do. We are pretty sure that at the current moment none of you needs us to provide examples of this. To be fair, many of us do not like to be told what to do either, thus condemning ... (Read More)
