He exhibited in about 350 juried shows along with receiving more than one hundred national and international awards and artistic recognition, the most satisfying of these was the 1942 selection for membership into the National Academy of Design, the premier American art institution located New York City.  In 1952 the Academy honored Reed with full academician status. 

 

Captivated by the southwestern landscape, coupled with the fact that many esteemed artists lived there, he chose to retire in Taos in 1959 and died there in 1985.
