Showcasing the work of both living and deceased artists, Claggett/
Rey Gallery, located in Vail, displays a range of mediums including
paintings, sculpture and photography. Artists represented at the gallery
include Joe Beeler (1931-2006), James Reynolds (1926-2010), Tim
Shinabarger, Oreland Joe, Walt Gonske and Jim Morgan, among dozens
of others.
And we would be remiss not to mention the Greeley Stampede’s
historic Stampede Western Invitational Art Exhibit & Sale, a beloved
staple in the state of Colorado, featuring more than 200 works from
some of the top artists of today working in Western subject matter.
Throughout the pages of this special section, collectors will find
artwork and information on a variety of other galleries, artists, events
and organizations, including Steamboat Art Museum, Wild Horse

Gallery, Stephanie Hartshorn, Leslie Hindman Auctioneers and John
Pyson, who is organizing a retrospective exhibition for late nature
artist Gene Diodato.
