- Lyle O. Reitzel
In 1988 Lyle began his career as "art marchante," promoting a select group of underground contemporary artists, uncompromised by the market. Lyle presents an avant-garde and daring esthetic proposal, where "the new, the strange, and the extravagant" are appreciated. The Lyle O. Reitzel Gallery opened its doors in 1995, and has since focused its efforts on supporting the new art trends of The Dominican Republic, Latin America, and The Caribbean.
