On September 10, 2016, the John Palmer Art Gallery & Studio will award its Lifetime Achievement Award to top collector Daniel MacFadden. This is the third annual presentation of the honor that goes to a significant collector of artist John Ross Palmer. The John Palmer Art Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes and celebrates an individual, couple or business that has demonstrated the highest level of support to Palmer’s professional career as an artist since its inception in 1998. The award presentation night is known as “Collector’s Night” to Palmer’s top cadre of patrons and it has a long history of phenomenal entertainment, art auction and exclusive access to the Founder of Escapism. MacFadden will be the guest of honor.
MacFadden is blown away by the distinction, “From my first original ‘Palmer’ purchase in 1999 through the years of watching the evolution of Escapism, John’s artwork has always enriched my life. I love the art itself, the stories, the people and the experiences.” MacFadden continues, “I’m honored to be a part of John and Ryan’s trip in this life.” MacFadden is a well-deserving recipient of this high accolade that is based on three criteria: longevity supporting Palmer, consistency supporting Palmer and an overall passion for the career of artist John Ross Palmer. MacFadden, in addition to owning scores of Palmer originals, is a current member of his First Class Club and took part in the artist’s art mecca to Greece with a small number of top collectors in 2007.
The inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award was presented in 2014. The recipient was Mr. Julio Montano. The award presentation took place at the legendary Tony’s in Houston, Texas on August 19, 2014. The 2015 recipients of the award were inaugural First Class Club members Richard & Joan Jennings.
