I had Steve Elmore on the podcast today and I've known Steve since about 1995. He's an interesting guy with a unique story. You see, Steve grew up about 100 miles away from where I did in Carlsbad, New Mexico. He had an intimate relationship with Carlsbad Caverns, which, if you haven't ever been to, is this immense natural wonder of the world. It's…
 
I had Logan Maxwell Hagege on the podcast today. He's such an interesting person and a wonderful artist. I think you'll really enjoy this podcast as it's my 200th podcast. It's appropriate for Logan to be my guest on this milestone episode just because of the ride we've had together and how I’ve had the pleasure of watching him mature as an artist …
 
I had Matt Fitzsims on the podcast today and he wrote a wonderful book called 'The Counterfeiters of Bosque Redondo: Slavery, Silver and the U.S. War Against the Navajo Nation. I read this book twice, actually. There's so much in-depth history. I feel like you can actually hear the voices of the people sharing their perspectives of these dark times…
 
I had Jeff Mitchell on today. I've known Jeff for around 27 years and he's a really interesting guy and a very sweet man who loves art and has a unique background like so many art dealers do. This podcast tells the story of how Jeff became a leader in his field, primarily dealing in art by deceased artists, with a specialty in Maynard Dixon, which …
 
I had Philip Garaway on the podcast today. I knew it would be a very interesting podcast and I also knew it would also go very long (which it did). It was over two hours so we're going to break this into two episodes. Part 2 of the Philip Garaway interview is about his transformation into a leader in the field of Native American art. He started sel…
 
I had Philip Garaway on the podcast today. I knew it would be a very interesting podcast and I also knew it would also go very long (which it did). It was over two hours so we're going to break this into two episodes. Episode one is about his early life and how he became who he is spiritually and emotionally from a walkabout in India for a year to …
 
Peter Nesbit came by today and we actually recorded on a Sunday (something I never do). I did that because I really wanted him on this podcast and sometimes you have to work around a person's schedule to capture important stories from important people. Anyway, Peter was in Tucson and I thought: "God, I got to have Pete on my podcast." Peter is just…
 
I had Tom Figarelle on the podcast today and he's the Executive Director of the C.M. Russell Museum in Great Falls, Montana. This podcast is unique because we get to hear the extent of Tom's love for his hometown which is Great Falls, MT. It's where he's from, where his parents are from, and where he lives and works to honor a historical figure tha…
 
I had Krystii Melaine on the podcast today. She was born and raised in a very small town in southeastern Australia called Bairnsdale and followed her love of art up and down, trying to find her path. Eventually, she found her way into America and started painting Western art, which was a thing she didn't even know existed. Fast forward to today and…
 
I had Kim Wiggins on the show today and, wow... He's such an interesting guy. It's fun to be able to have such an erudite and wonderful artist that has such a unique story. He's from a ranching community in southeastern New Mexico (really close to where I grew up, actually). His father was a photojournalist, a very well-received photojournalist and…

Juraj Skalina was my guest on the podcast today. I've known Juraj for.. gosh.. 25, almost 30 years? I started using him as a framer in 1996 and I think it's so important (when we talk about the business of art and the world of art) that we don't forget it's not just artists and art dealers. It's also people that work to optimize art for display in …
 
I had Mike Fox on the podcast today and we spoke for almost 3 hours. I knew that was going to be the case when I started because he's a very unique individual with a rich background in the arts. He's had a lot of different jobs throughout his life, and when I say jobs I mean they were all museum or nonprofits type jobs. Mike has done great work for…

Jan Mapes dropped by the studio today to give us some paintings and a new bronze that she's recently produced. Luckily, I managed to wrangle her into the studio to do a podcast (which is not easy because she lives out in the middle of nowhere in eastern Colorado). Jan is a professional sculptor and painter and is very successful having shown in man…
 
Oil painter Matt Ryder is my guest on the podcast today. He flew 23 hours from the U.A.E. to get to Tucson that's a commitment for your art. Matt reached out to me after hearing a podcast I had done with Eric Rhodes for his Plein Air Podcast, and now I represent him in my gallery, sometimes it can be that simple or hard if you are the one doing the…
 
One of the reasons I do podcasts is not only to understand the guests I have on, or the art world for that matter but also to gain insight into my own creativity and who I am. Jill Carver really brought that home for me today because she was willing to share her incredibly personal journey leading up to her 2022 exhibition "The Wild Southwest, Forc…
 
Today's podcast is a little different. Instead of me doing the interviewing, I am actually going to be one of the people on a panel. The panel consists of myself and Davison Koenig, who is the director of the Couse-Sharp Historic Site in Taos, New Mexico. It's a great museum and I highly recommend going and visiting it. The moderator is Michael Cla…
 
I'm always amazed when I do a podcast and somebody I've known for 25 years or longer like Veryl Goodnight manages to surprise me, and not just surprise me, but enchant me. Her enthusiasm for what she does and her love of animals is and has always been the driving force for her creativity, from childhood to now. So, artists out there who are wonderi…
 
I had Charles Fritz on today. He's such an interesting person, not just as a painter, but also as a guy who really loves the outdoors. Charles not only likes to hunt and fish, but he's also an individual that really believes in conservation. He believes that you have to get out and do plein air paintings to be able to capture what you hope to captu…
 
I had painter Sue Rother on the podcast today. Sue is married to oil painter Francis Livingston, and, you know, they're a dynamic duo of artists. Both of them started in illustration almost 50 years ago and moved into fine art over the last 20 years. It was fun to talk to Sue about her trajectory and how she made her way through the illustration wo…
 
Today's guest was Mark Hilbert, and he has his own museum. That alone is a very unique and amazing thing. This is an individual who started his career in engineering and invented a module that made climate control devices more energy efficient. He was able to patent the technology and then ultimately sell the company, helping him establish a commer…
 
Today was a two-for-one. I had Pat and Kim Messier on and it was fun because I had them in-house in the studio and we sat side by side and really just had a discussion about their history and how native arts have affected their lives. Pat is a native Tucsonan who first started working with native arts in 1949. So she's been in the trade and has wor…
 
I had Miriam Shulman on today. Miriam is such an interesting human being and she had to overcome some serious adversity to get where she is today. Miriam got an art history degree, but because of the way things sometimes go in life, she ended up doing other things. You know, I was a physician who became an art dealer. Well, Miriam was a Wall Street…
 
I had Michael Clawson on the podcast today. I've known Michael for quite a while, he's the executive editor of "Western Art Collector" and "Native American Magazine" and the editor of "American Art Collector" and "American Fine Art Magazine". You don't hear the backstories of the publishing world or the art world unless you do the sort of deep-dive…
 
Today's guest on the podcast was Jay Dusard. He's one of the best known Western photographers of the 20th century (not to mention a Guggenheim scholar winner) who I've known for quite a long time. I've had the pleasure of seeing his work in numerous museum shows spanning several decades and I was really thrilled that he took the time and effort to …
 
Today I had contemporary Western artist Josh Gibson on the podcast. I've known Josh since he was five years old and he's the youngest artist I represent at my gallery. He's almost 29 and was professionally trained at the California College of the Arts in the Bay Area. When Josh first cracked into the art scene, he was more of an illustrator/animato…
 
I had artist Mark Bowles on the podcast today via zoom. One interesting component of doing this podcast is that I never really know what I'm going to learn about my guests. That's one of the reasons I like doing them so much. You know, the discovery aspect of it all. In this episode, Mark and I went down some of the deeper, darker holes of life. Th…
 
It's always fun when you get to talk to somebody that you haven't spent time with on an intimate level and he's the guest today, Dr. Jerry Smith. I've known Jerry for 25+ years and we've had lots of conversations over the years, just usually in a museum setting. Here is an individual who was literally moving boxes on the night shift for almost ten …
 
I had gallery owner Bill Rey on the podcast today and we spoke for quite a while, so this will be a two-part interview. This is part two. Bill is a very interesting guy who I've known for over 20 years. He's been in the art gallery business for almost 40 years, having started when he was 18 working with a Squash Blossom Gallery in Aspen, Vail, and …

View Bill Anton's newest painting "Stirrup Deep" here: https://www.medicinemangallery.com/bill-anton-stirrup-deep-plv1341.html Now, I've done a long-format podcast with Bill, but you know, he brought this painting in that we just got for the gallery and it's such a fantastic painting. It's one of those really inspirational works that when you stare…
 
I had Joan and David Wenger on today, and it was really it was a great time. In the first part of the podcast, I really go into detail with David about dye analysis of Cochineal, Indigo dyes in serapes. There's some technical information in there as well, which is great to know and we talk about serapes, early Navajo textiles, and the meaning of da…
 
I had a really interesting podcast with Lyn Fox today, who owns Lyn A. Fox Fine Pottery in Santa Fe. I've known Lynne for probably since the day he started dealing in Pueblo pottery (his specialty) over 20 years ago. Lyn is a very kind human being who's really considerate in what he does as a dealer and how he looks about buying and selling art. I …
 
I had Glenn Dean on the podcast today. He came to my gallery in Tucson to film this podcast and was a fun podcast. You know, the zoom podcasts are great and they make being able to see and talk to people from a variety of fields much easier, but I must admit - sitting next to somebody and having a meaningful intimate conversation is a whole differe…
 
I had Bruce Hartman on today, which was so much fun. He's a natural, gregarious, happy individual, and he's always been that way. I've known him for 20 plus years and any time I've ever seen him at a show (which is usually where I see him) he's always laughing and giggling and just having a great time. You see, Bruce absolutely loves art and is a v…

I had Museum Director James Burns on today. James is an interesting guy because he's done so many things. He is a curator, a director, an individual who has always loved history and art. It's a fun ride because we get to see what it takes to get in that world, to be in the world of being an executive director for a museum. You can tell from his sto…
 
I had Andy Nettle on the podcast today. He is the owner of Back of Beyond Books in Moab, Utah; I met Andy when I was in Moab the summer hiking the Canyonlands and Arches National Monument. Moab is amazing - both geographically and archeologically. There are so many unique early petroglyphs and pictographs from all time frames. Signs of human civili…
 
I had Erin Hanson on today. She's a very interesting person and I've always been a big fan of her work. In fact, I represent her work. I don't get a lot because she has her own galleries, but I do get some great things occasionally. She is a unique human being in many, many respects. She's not only extremely talented ​as an artist, but she has the …
 
Today's podcast is a special one because I'm actually the one who's being interviewed and I'm not going to lie, it's kind of different to be on the other side of the mic, so to speak. This is for Eric Rhoads' program Plein Air Podcast (which is a wonderful podcast by the way), having done over 200 interviews and it's a historically artist-centric p…

Part seven features (in order) Western plein air painter Bill Gallen, Associate Director of the BYU Museum of Art Ed Lind, master San Ildefonso potter Russe…

About 10 years or so ago I decided I wanted to capture the voices of those in my profession. At the time I was thinking of the dealer community - mostly because, let's face it, we're getting older. I figured if I captured these voices somehow, their stories wouldn't be lost forever. When I eventually started the podcast, the project evolved into on…
 
Ed Mell came by the studio today and I was thrilled to be able to record a 2-part podcast with him. Honestly, I've been trying to get Ed on the podcast for three whole years. I've had so many people on Art Dealer Diaries talk about Ed Mell in their own podcasts... I think it's probably up to about a dozen people now. It's just one of those things, …
