Art Estate of Harley Viewing Opportunity:

This art collection is comprised of approximately 500 original pieces (see photos)
by the artist Harley (née Harley Forrest Francis, II). Harley worked exclusively a
professional fine artist for six decades, the first half spent in the midwest and
his final 30 years in the Bay/Sonoma Area.

I will be in Sonoma County from August 18th - August 22nd and will be opening the
collection of Harley’s original paintings, currently stored in Forestville, for
viewing and sales by appointment only. As the collection in Forestville is
comprised almost exclusively of paintings, I’ll be bringing a selection of
Harley’s collages from Portland to broaden the selection available.

Be sure to contact me if you'd like to set a date to view the collection any time
between 8/18 and 8/22. This will be the last viewing opportunity before the
memorial retrospective Oct 7-11 at the Marin Society of Artists in San Raphael. I
will be working on it daily and am always happy to show off Harley's legacy.

Covid precautions observed and I am fully vaccinated.

Representation sought:
I am still searching for an art dealer or gallerist who not only recognizes the
value of Harley's work but also has meaningful connections to a variety of players
in the art world. My fondest wish is to inspire an active player in the art world
to 'Discover Harley!' and help me place the pieces in forever homes. Referrals are
most welcome.

Thank you for your consideration and taking the time to read this. I will be happy
to answer any questions you might have about the collection.
