This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Philadelphia, Reginald Gammon was a painter whose subjects often focused on dramatic moments in history and on persons who would never be considered heroic.  In the early 1940s, his work ranging from humorous to highly serious was usually figurative, often featuring ethnic figures and politicians.  In the latter part of his career, he depicted many Jazz musicians, which for him, were symbols of what creative African-Americans such as himself, who could contribute to contemporary culture.

As a beginning artist, he studied at the Phildelphia Museum of Art and the Tyler School of Fine Art at Temple University.  In New York City, he became a founding member in the 1960s of Spiral Group, an organization of black artists who worked together to use their creative skills to help the civil-rights movement and to place black artists on equal footing with artists of other ethnicity.  When Spiral disbanded he worked with Benny Andrews and others in the Black Emergency Cultural Coalition, which focused on what members percieved as bad treatment in traditional institutions.

Then he moved to Kalamozoo, Michigan where he was professor of Fine Arts and Humanities at Western Michigan University.  He retired in 1991 and moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico with his wife Jonni.  He continued painting and took up printmaking.

He died on November 4, 2005 at the Heart Hospital in Albuquerque.
