OCNY Recognizes Donors with Private Showing at Famed Auction House

On November 4 the Optometric Center of New York (OCNY), the philanthropic arm of the SUNY College of Optometry, hosted a unique private viewing of impressionist and modern art for approximately 65 of the Foundation’s donors and friends the day before the collection was set to go to auction at Bonhams, one of the oldest and largest fine art auction houses in the world.

The collection included over 75 works by such artists as Vincent Van Gogh, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Marc Chagall, Auguste Rodin and many others.  

   

Prior to the viewing, which was hosted by Tanya Wells, the head of sales at Bonhams, the gathering was welcomed Mr. Richard Feinbloom, the OCNY president, Mr. Michael Mariani, a member and Trusts and Estates Advisory Committee of the OCNY and Dr. David A. Heath, president of the SUNY College of Optometry.
