"We feel the time is right to begin offering works from our personal collection", stated Burgess. "With major museum collections growing, auction records being set for the artist's work and galleries asking higher and higher prices, the depth of the New River Fine Art's collection means we can offer real value to collectors for an artist whose reputation will continue to grow for many years. Many art professionals believe major works from Purvis Young will soon regularly be valued at over one hundred thousand dollars." Prices in the exhibition range from a mere $150 to $50,000.
