Hidden Gems: Meet Reyne Hirsch of Patrick Jones Gallery

Today we’d like to introduce you to Reyne Hirsch. 

Hi Reyne, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
As a longtime fan of fine art & antiques, I spent years scouring auctions and markets looking for the perfect pieces to decorate my home. As time progressed, my tastes changed and I would want better things. To afford my ever-growing collection I began buying and selling art & antiques. I followed the market closely for hidden treasures in obscure auctions and private sales. Before long, I was dealing full time, writing about hot markets, up-and-coming artists, and things to watch for in an array of publications. What started out as a fun hobby turned into a full-time job, and also landed me on numerous television series discussing all things collecting. 

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
They say, “No risk, no reward”. This is very true in the world of dealing in decorative items. This is a want, not a need. So, when the stock market was in turmoil, the collecting world could be as well. People would more apt to sell than buy. But you could see this as an opportunity to buy if you could not sell. Also, you really have to know what you are buying. There are a vast array of forgeries, reproductions, and items that have been restored. You can easily lose your shirt if you aren’t very well versed in the items you are buying. 

We’ve been impressed with Patrick Jones Gallery, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
The Patrick Jones Gallery is a leading art gallery, specializing in blue-chip artwork from Modern to Contemporary. We also offer an array of national and international artists that are on the verge of exploding in the market. 

What do you like and dislike about the city?
What I love about Dallas is the culture. Dallas has some of the best museums, galleries, and artist studios in Texas. I also love the diversity of art that can be found in the city.
