Expressions Gallery in Ketchum expands with new partners
    Dave and Molly McGary of Expressions Gallery have added two partners, Tom Bassett and Sandy Gregorak, at their Ketchum location and will now call the venture Wood River Fine Arts, an Expressions Gallery.
    The McGarys opened Expressions Gallery two years ago as a space for his realistic sculpture depicting Native Americans and other art. They have a 17-year-old gallery in their second home of Scottsdale, Ariz.
    Moving from Vail, Colo. Bassett and Gregorak are bringing their love of skiing and their expertise—Tom managed a Vail gallery for 24 years and supervised the ski school at Beaver Creek and Sandy is a lawyer and active outdoor enthusiast.
    Wood River Fine Arts will feature many new artists in the coming months as the gallery begins to expand its fine arts inventory and introduce artists from around the nation.
    “As a partner, Tom brings his vast knowledge of the art world to the Sun Valley gallery,” said Dave McGary. “I’ve known Tom for 25 years. Since I’ve known him, he has placed over 20 monumental works of mine in Canada and across the U.S. I know the gallery is in good hands and they have our best interests at heart. Tom is excited to bring quality groups of artists in major museum collections and shows to the gallery.”
    The gallery, at 360 East Ave., is a Sun Valley Gallery Association member and will be open for the Gallery Walk Friday, Nov. 23, from 5-8 p.m.
