Steven and Kathleen Sidwell spent their lives together moving from place to place, making their home and family in seven cities across the USA. Because of Steven’s career as an NFL defensive football coach, the Sidwells led a fluid and unpredictable lifestyle. Everywhere they landed, they laid down roots, immersing themselves in the various art communities, cultural centers and galleries of the region. As a practicing artist, Kathleen often enrolled in art classes, working alongside local artists. And, as part of their Life in Art, Kate and Steven articulated their love for art through their growing collection.
The Sidwells’ home inevitably became a hub for artists, gallerists and collectors, encouraging networking and collaboration. On Cape Cod in their Studio on Slough Road multipurpose work, exhibition and living space, the Sidwell home developed into its own unofficial cultural center where artists and collectors could mingle, discuss, exhibit and purchase/sell artwork.
A Life in Art: The Steven and Kathleen Sidwell Collection is a celebration of the Sidwells love of art and their commitment to supporting local artists through their patronage, everywhere they found themselves. The exhibition includes art collected by the Sidwells from 1970 to the present. Over 50 artworks are on display including paintings, prints, sculpture and multi-media artwork.
