This business was born 63 years ago in Topeka, Kansas. At that time it was strictly an antique shop. The founder, Bill Bishop, was influenced by his great aunt’s tales of antiques that had come down in the family. Ten years later, Bill and his wife, Gail, opened a summers gallery in the mountains of Colorado. A year later the Bishops met Ned Jacob in Taos, New Mexico and began handling his art. The other half of the business evolved over the next years as many other artists were added. So, by now, the business is a vast mix of antiques and contemporary art.
Forty-eight years ago the Bishops moved their winter business to Scottsdale, Arizona. A wise decision as it turns out. For reasons of age and health, Bill closed the Colorado location in September 2014 so it will be year-round at 7164 Main Street in Scottsdale. The antique shop is over-full with interesting and often one-of-a-kind antiques from around the world.
In the gallery, you will find oils, watercolors, bronzes, lithographs, and etchings from American masters such as Leonard Baskin, Fritz Scholder, and livings ones such as Steve Kestrel, Tom Russell, Carol Jenkins, Tyson Grumm, Bart Walters, Tony Hochsletter, and many, many more
