REX RAY ESTATE


Gallery 16 and the Estate of Rex Ray are pleased to announce that the gallery now represents the estate of the late artist. Griff Williams and Gallery 16 began working with Rex Ray in 1995, a relationship that lasted until his untimely death in February of 2015. Rex Ray was an important American artist whose career blossomed in San Francisco, California in the late 1980s. A major cultural force in the art, literary, and activist communities in the Bay Area, he was recognized for his signature work in collage and his pop aesthetic. The gallery will work to further advance the legacy of Rex Ray through exhibitions and public programs at its gallery space, as well as through development of new publications and the sale of artworks. The Rex Ray Estate holds rare, never-before-seen paintings, collages, and prints that demonstrate his incredible relationship with composition, color, and signature collage process.
