Stop by the store to browse our updated collections of the below artists sprinkled all around the store!
Betsy was a "late bloomer" in regards to the art field. She worked in an art gallery for five years and was so inspired by the artist's work, she decided to go back to school and learn how to paint at the age of 40.
She was probably very close to have painted every dog in Evergreen, CO., when she was inspired to start painting Colorado Wildlife. Because of her signature style and the eyes of the critters, most folks can spot a "BETSY!"
Tatanka is a collection of Arturo's bison paintings. With it, he intends to deliver a story about the largest, most iconic mammal in North America and the importance it had in the Native American Cultures from time immemorial.
With this exhibit, Arturo has officially joined forces with all the nature conservation entities to deliver an educative art presentation about the importance of bison, both culturally and nature-wise.
Dawn expresses what she sees in nature while capturing its spirit and essence onto canvas creating colorful, thick, juicy paintings you almost want to touch.
Dawn paints because it fulfills her and wants to share her artwork with others to bring them joy and beauty to their lives. Dawn is thrilled to paint outdoors as weather allows. Living in the Colorado gives her inspiration to paint often.
Art has been a lifetime passion for Tricia Bass. Her love of the great outdoors, and particularly the Rocky Mountains, has led her to a career as a plein air painter. Bass has learned that the essence of feeling and the play of light and color in a scene is what she hopes to catch in a simple, pleasing way.
It is not always the breathtaking vista that excites her but sometimes the smallest, simplest subject will catch her eye to inspire her to bring paint to canvas.
Margaretta's voice is expressed through fresh, loose brush strokes and lots of rich full-volume color. She aims to balance that spontaneity with a sense of sophistication and control.
Margaretta achieves that with a thick impasto and delicious directional brushwork with layers of color always attempting to allow each layer to shine through, even and maybe especially, the underpainting.
Blending modern insight with old world training, Anita enjoys painting a variety of subject matter. For Anita, contemporary art is an interpretation of the moment, captured directly thru color with exuberant strokes across the canvas.
Anita paints in her Centennial, CO studio and her work has been featured in articles numerous times in Southwest Art magazine including “Artist to Watch” in 2001 and in American Art Collector, Western Art Collector, Art of the West and Vail Art Magazine.
