We'd like to thank
all our visitors to our highwaymen website during the last decade. When we
established this web presence in the year 2000, after exhibiting at antique
shows for several years, we noted about a half dozen sites devoted to Florida
highwaymen art. Now the count has at least doubled, including many by some of
the artists themselves, who are now aggressively marketing their new work. The
highwayman art market is certainly firmly established.
On a personal note, I'd like to thank the pioneers who latched onto this market in the early days, the mid 1990's, and shaped and molded it into what it has become today.
First and foremost, thank you Jim and Anne Fitch, the true ground breakers and delightful people who introduced this art to the public via publication of several articles in "Arts and Antiques around Florida".
And to Jeff Klinkenberg for his early stories in the St Pete Times.
Thanks to Geoff Cook, who had a vision and stayed the course.
Thanks to Dave and Sue Folds, the first major dealers of highwaymen art. Boy, did they ever have some stuff in the 1990's. Their loft was a highwaymen warehouse. (Back in those days, we dealers were literally begging people to invest in Alfred Hair's work at $25 to $35 for full size, and Harold Newton's at $150 to $250. )
Thanks to John Phillips, who relentlessly promoted this art at shows around the state.
Thanks to collector extraordinaire Tim Jacobs.
And to collector Scott Schlesinger for all of his many important contributions to the market.
Thanks to Jean and Ty Tyson, Micanopy's finest and most successful dealers during their run. They had a special appreciation for the best of the best.
And a very special thanks to the Backus Gallery and Kathleen Frederick, who finally accepted the highwaymen as legitimate collectible artists after years of resistance. It was an important step for this market.
AND THANKS TO ALL THE COLLECTORS WHO HAVE SUPPORTED THIS MARKET OVER THE YEARS.
Many of you have already been financially rewarded. We anticipate continued growth well into the future for quality vintage pieces.
We exhibit at shows or by appointment.
