How many folks do you know that would stop a 40-year-career to chase a lifelong passion? That’s exactly what Clayton Williams did 30 years ago when he left four decades of engineering work to open his own art gallery, Williams Fine Art in Salt Lake City. Since then, he’s had a distinguished career and has been active in supporting the community through impressive board assignments, not to mention he served in the Coast Guard during World War II.

Clayton is well known for his impact on the Utah art scene and beyond. As the owner and founder of Williams Fine Art, his focus has been famous Western and Utah artists, like J.J. Harwood, LeConte Stewart, Maynard Dixon, Minerva Teichert (tie-churt) and Randall Lake. He’s been active in supporting art history, bringing in famous artists for lecture series and has accumulated a collection of audio/visual of some of these renowned people.

After operating Williams Fine Art, Clayton has decided to sell some of his own collection. This is a once-in-a-lifetime auction of 80 plus pieces of famous Western artists that will be held at 3365 W. 5th South, off Redwood Road, with a preview today in the same location from 10 to 4 and the actual auction Saturday, March 23, from 9 to noon.
