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 Denver.
This is a fun interview - especially for those people who're really interested in the history of the art business, dealers, and artists alike because Bill has an encyclopedic recall of all these artists that he's worked with and the places he's gone with them. We learn about Bill's background before art and go in-depth about Bill's relationships with the likes of Jim Reynolds and Robert Lougheed (both of which are amazing Western artists).
It was a very fun time and Bill's such a character that he even had a Medicine Man Gallery shirt made to wear during the podcast. That's just the kind of guy Bill is.
