Robert Vogele has always responded to the artist as much as he has the work of art. Robert has collected because he has made true friendships with the artists, and he has learned of their concerns as well as their associations with other artists. He is curious about their lives as well as their art. He, in fact, seems as though he’s some family member. I’ve enjoyed knowing Robert because he is seriously committed to art and to those that are interested in letting it be art.
