As a staple in contemporary art, the late Matt Lamb broke boundaries in aspects of his life as an artist, sculptor, philosopher, activist and world-traveler.
Fifteen of Mr. Lamb’s original pieces from a private California collection can be viewed and purchased at Scottsdale-based luxury consignment store, Avery Lane 2, according to a press release.
Avery Lane 2 is an extension of the Avery Lane consignment store that expanded and doubled its size on Sept. 6, making it among the largest consignment shops in the country, according to a release.
Mr. Lamb’s art has been displayed in exhibitions in The State Russian Museum, the Centre-Picasso, Centre Joan Miró, Westminster Cathedral, among others, the release said.
As a tribute to his activist spirit, Avery Lane 2 owner, Darlene Richert, will donate $10 for every guest attending the grand opening event featuring live music, wine and hors d’oeuvres from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 26.
Donations will go to Rosie’s House that provides artistic musical lessons to the Valley’s most under-served population. Recently, Ms. Richert raised $60,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale.
In honor of the artist whose legacy graces the store walls, the grand opening of Avery Lane 2 will also offer collective art project stations for attendees to gather to paint and customize umbrellas to be hung in the store as an art installation, according to the release.
