Raymond James Art Collection Tour

Join us for a tour of the Tom and Mary James/Raymond James Financial Art Collection, one of Florida's largest private art collections.

The Tom and Mary James/Raymond James Financial Art Collection, one of Florida’s largest private art collections, consists of more than 2,400 works of art. It includes original paintings, sculptures and graphics. More than 90% of the collection is owned by Tom James, executive chairman of Raymond James Financial, and his wife, Mary James. Mr. James has selected almost every piece of artwork himself. While some of the artists in the collection are now deceased, he believes buying works from living artists helps to sustain them in their profession. The collection is on display at the firm's corporate headquarters in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Although the collection began in the late 1950s with predominantly American artists, primarily from Florida, it has grown to include a variety of genres. In the mid-1980s, while on trips to Colorado and New Mexico, Mr. James began to collect Western and Southwestern art. More than half of the collection now consists of Western/Southwestern styles of art, including works by Earl Biss, Glenna Goodacre, Allan Houser, Dave McGary, Dan Namingha and many members of the Cowboy Artists of America. Wildlife art makes up about 25% of the collection, including works by Matthew Hillier, John Seerey-Lester and Al Agnew. Other genres include Pop, Contemporary, Figurative, Sports Art and Landscapes.

Our Presenter for the evening will be Kevin Pate, Sr.  Due Diligence Officer, Asset Management Services.
