Today Ted speaks with Kevin Doyle, Curator of Jackson Hole Art Auction.
Since 2007, the Auction has been recognized as one of the premier art events in the country. It is known for featuring a wide variety of genres, including wildlife, sporting, figurative, landscape, and Western art by both renowned past masters and contemporary artists.
Listen in as Kevin talks about working with Sotheby’s Auction House for over 20 years in New York, the dramatic rise of online bidding in recent years, and the differences between his native Manhattan’s art scene and that of Jackson Hole.
He speaks on his typical day in the life as an auctioneer and how he has seen tastes evolve over the past two decades. He speaks in particular of the NFT (non-fungible token) phenomenon and how different generations view the idea of owning a publicly viewable piece of digital media.
