Fore! Gary Wiren Golf Memorabilia Collection to Come to Lighthouse ArtCenter
Sculptor Brad Pearson will be featured in an exhibition of the Academy of Golf Art at the Lighthouse ArtCenter from February 17 to April 6, 2011.
TEQUESTA, FL.- Mark your calendar now! Come February 17, it’s all about golf at the Lighthouse ArtCenter. The museum will pay tribute to the local and national favorite pastime through an exhibition featuring one of the finest collections of golf memorabilia in the world, compliments of Dr. Gary Wiren. Dr. Wiren is a golf educator, a Master member of the Professional Golfers Association of America, a former national PGA staff director, and is one of only three professionals named to both the PGA Hall of Fame and Golf Magazine’s World Golf Teachers Hall of Fame.

The exhibition premieres alongside some of the nation’s finest golf art from the renowned Academy of Golf Art. Participating artists are: painters David Coolidge, Leslie B. DeMille, Linda Hartough and George T. Lawrence; photographers Dick Durrance II and Larry Lambrecht; sculptor Brad Pearson. Both exhibitions open February 17, 2011, and run through April 6. The opening reception will take place on Wednesday, February 23, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Golf-enthusiasts and art-lovers alike will enjoy an impressive historic collection of books, clubs, balls, postcards, stamps, tees, magazines, sheet music and works of art. Lighthouse ArtCenter Executive Director Katie Deits says she’s looking forward to turning the museum into a golf-haven for a few months. “I think it’s something that people in this area will appreciate,” she says. Moreover, Deits notes that the collection has appeal even to people who’ve never set foot on a golf course. “The breadth and depth of Dr. Wiren’s collection makes it fascinating for anybody to look through.” Dr. Wiren’s collection alone has been mentioned on ESPN and by various national and international news sources. Additionally it has been personally visited by Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, and Jack Welch.
