The Ann Korologos Gallery presents Inhabitations: Western Landscapes, a group exhibition of works by artists Peter Campbell, Dean Mitchell, Elizabeth Sandia, Andy Taylor, Marie Figge Wise, Simon Winegar, Dinah K. Worman and Dan Young, opening with an artists’ reception on Friday, September 9 from 5-7 pm. This opening coincides with Art Walk Basalt Second Fridays (ARTB2F), a free event open to the public in Historic Downtown

The Ann Korologos Gallery is a premier source for Western Art in the Roaring Fork Valley, and a destination for art lovers to enjoy, shop and learn about fine art. The gallery represents 35 artists, many of whom live and work in the Roaring Fork Valley, and many specialize in landscape painting, both in-studio and Plein Air. Their styles range from representational (Dan Young, Peter Campbell, Dean Mitchell, Elizabeth Sandia, Simon Winegar) to more abstracted perspectives (Andy Taylor, Dinah Worman, Marie Wise).

“It is no accident that landscape painting comprises much of  Western Art. The wide open spaces and big skies have inspired the frontier spirit  and countless American artists since well before the American Revolution,” says Ann Korologos, gallery owner. “Collectors often favor works that remind them of specific locations and regions,  whether that may be a souvenir vista from a special holiday excursion or the view from the front porch.”

The exhibition features a selection of works influenced by the landscapes of the West, especially those which indicate man’s imprint and/or infĺuence on the land. Artistic styles range from recognizable Colorado locations of Plein Air painters Andy Taylor and Dan Young to the majestic cloudscapes of Durango painter Peter Campbell and misty tonalist gems of Marie Wise, to Dinah Worman’s more abstract bird’s eye views, to the weathered barns of Simon Winegar, the abandoned structures of Dean Mitchell’s watercolors and Elizabeth Sandia’s color-saturated pastels.

Inhabitations: Western Landscapes will remain on view through October 29, 2016. For more information, please visit the gallery at 211 Midland Avenue in Basalt; call us at 970.927.9668 or email us: art@korologosgallery.com.
