This Year's Juror: Bill Ryan, Fort Worth, TX
Bill Ryan is a resident of Arlington, Texas where he lives with his lovely wife Joan. Raised outside of Boston, Massachusetts, Bill watched his mother paint, a "Sunday painter" as he referred to her. An aunt enjoyed taking him on excursions to the Boston Museum of Fine Art, which fostered a life long love and appreciation of fine art.
Seven years ago, Bill realized a long time ambition by opening Weiler House Fine Art Gallery in Fort Worth. A diverse, eclectic gallery, Weiler House Fine Art features local, regional and national artists. Through his experience with art, Bill has also become an informal appraiser of fine art. Weiler House was honored as the recipient of the Fort Worth Weekly 2015 Critic's Choice Award for the Best Art Gallery in Fort Worth. Bill is also a member of the Fort Worth Art Dealers Association and the East Fort Worth Business Association.
Through extensive reading and trips to museums, Bill has been inspired by the likes of John Singer Sargent, Frederick Church and George Inness, the French impressionists, and even the modernists of the Fort Worth Circle. “I bought my first piece of art, a small Japanese woodcut, when I was 19 years old. I have collected art since then including Asian, European, and American art. Weiler House is most certainly a reflection of my wide range of interest in art-classical realism, impressionism, abstract, pottery, American art glass, sculpture, works on paper such as watercolors, drawings, etchings, woodcuts and lithographs.”
