It includes many of Reynolds’ signature paintings, sculptures, drawings and commercial artwork alongside rarely seen examples from private collections.
“Reynolds’ colorful past as a cowboy, art director for singer/songwriter Carol King and illustrator/graphic designer for INL is reflected in much of the work he has produced as a full-time painter and sculptor during the last 18 years,” the release said.
