Jack Riley (1917–1989)— Western Artists

Following service in World War II, Riley spent 30 years as a watch repairman before turning full time to his true vocation and calling of being an artist. Inspired by the work of Charles Russell and Frederick Remington he began experimenting with making sculpture in 1966. Largely self-taught, he began sculpting in gypsum and other clays he found near his home.
