"Importance of Collecting Art" - Cuban Art Exhibit

Newton Paul has studied art, art history, collecting, preservation/conservation, and curatorial practices in various mediums from 2009 to present. Since 2015, he has spent time traveling to various countries and acquiring artworks from artists, art centers, galleries, and auction houses. These works established the Armand-Paul Family Collection, which he is co-founder, co-manager, and co-curator. Parts of the collection have been loaned to various institutions, exhibited, and published in exhibition catalogs.

He has curated exhibitions on the Asociacion de Grabadores de Cuba (Association of Engravers of Cuba also known as AGC) (1949 to 1968), which is part of the Armand-Paul Family Collection. This is the largest collection, outside of Cuba, based on the AGC. His most recent accomplishment was co-curating the exhibition Charles White: Influences (April 2 to June 11, 2022) at Rockland Center for the Arts (West Nyack, NY).
