Tuesday Talk at the Museum: The Life and Work of Marjorie Reed

Gary Fillmore presents “All Aboard! The Life and Work of Marjorie Reed.”

Marjorie Reed was a prominent 20th century Western artist best known for her paintings of the Butterfield-

Overland Stage Trail. Reed made her living solely as a freelance artist for over 65 years and left behind a

significant body of work. Every bit as colorful as the art is her biographical account. Reed’s romantic attachment to

her subject matter took her from a life of ease in the Hollywood Hills to rustic shacks in the Southwestern deserts

and Bedouin tents in the Middle East. This account gives deep insight into Reed’s character and personality. This

book offers the first comprehensive account of Reed’s life and work. She was an extremely private individual who

led a transient lifestyle, claiming at the age of 81 to have moved once for each year she was alive. As a result, little

biographical information about this respected and sought artist has been available… until now.

Gary Fillmore is an art appraiser, dealer, collector, author and independent scholar. He has been the owner and

operator of the Blue Coyote Gallery in Cave Creek, Arizona since 2002, specializing in regional 20th century and

Native American art. In addition to being a regular contributor to Askart.com, Gary has authored several books. In

2013 he was accepted as an Associate Member of the Western Writers of America (WWA). He lives with his wife

Barbara in Cave Creek.
