Local Locals: Pat Bell, Art Collector

Ms. Bell’s collection, much of which is displayed in her South Orange home, includes paintings, prints, sculpture, constructions, photographs, ceramics, crafts and art furniture.

There are large works that take up an entire wall and tiny works that are scarcely three inches square.

But what’s clear from the moment you walk into her elegant home is that museum-quality art is everywhere, it’s masterfully displayed by an individual who’s passionate and up-to-date about visual arts and who, by virtue of an extraordinary eye for art, is an artist in her own right.
