In 1997 Bill opened an ATM cash machine business which lended his name to his first gallery ATM in 2001 in New York’s East Village. He also installed a ATM in the storefront of the gallery. Brady gave an opportunity to young emerging artists from all over the world and joined the burgeoning New York art scene. In his second year the gallery ATM acquired five consecutive New York Times reviews with artist like Huma Bahba, Joe Bradley and Tomoo Gokita which prompted his move to Chelsea. After 10 years in New York, Bill moved the gallery to Kansas City, Bill Brady’s home town. The Kansas City move came about because of Brady’s understanding of the ever evolving art world and interaction with the internet and social media and knowing that he didn’t need to be in New York. Bill moved the gallery to Miami in 2015 to a new space in the Little River District.
Bill Brady has been a Gallery owner for 17 years. He Graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1991. He Attended Skowhegan school Art in 1991.

“White has a unique bald willingness to let her be appreciated, as object, as subject and to be plainly visible to the not-so-innocent bystander. White is portrayed as a muse and a piece of art herself. Natalie creates the possibility that others may experience life-size what its like to be Natalie White as a sexual entity. This is combined with her possibly quixotic one-girl marches on the government in support of the Equal Rights Amendment, makes perfect sense. Stretching our minds a bit further, discovering a truth that we are trained to think that sexual beings don’t have rights.”
