Art-JR-1 "Too Far Gone Saloon" by Jim Rey, Western Cowboy saloon at night mini print picture matted measures 8" X 10".
Having grown up in a ranching family, western artist Jim Rey naturally loves working with horses and cattle. His eyes light up when he talks about training his Border Collie or a particularly wary horse, the days he has spent gathering cows in the high county or following a herd of wild horses. The paintings of Jim Rey tell the story of cowboys as living remnants of a bygone era. The stories he paints are both his own and those of the people and places he knows and loves.
The work of Jim Rey is collected nationally and internationally. His art has been exhibited in the Fredric Remington Museum in New York, as well as in many noted shows and exhibitions. His paintings have been used by Bantam Books and Encyclopedia Brittanica. Articles have been published in magazines including Southwest Art, art of the West, artists of the Rockies and International Fine art Magazine. The work of Jim Rey has also been featured in such newspapers as the The Denver Post, The Rocky Mountain News, The Durango Herald, The Vail Times and The Aspen Times.
