Chris Sedgwick has joined the gallery as a permanent member.

He graduated from Florida State University with a degree in Fine Arts in 2003.

"His style draws heavily from 15th and 16th century Northern Renaissance paintings.Sedgwick's pieces posses exacting detail, abundant symbols..."I like the detail, the mysticism". Each painting is riddled with symbols...from the number of dots that speckle a character's cap to the candle he holds..." Edie Adelstein

 

His work is in numerous collections worldwide and is housed in the permanent collections of Richard Kessler, Florida State University and Western Carolina University. He has been published in American Art Collector, the Laurel of Asheville and MuseTouch, Catapult and Poets and Artists Magazines.

Six of our artists are in the 2013 Colorado Governor's Show in Loveland: Carol Jenkins, Sheri Farabaugh, David Mayer, Lani Vlaanderen, Patti Andre and Deb Kaylor.

Introducing Sheri Farabaugh!
Land and waterscape artists need constant reference material, so Farabaugh is fortunate to live in the gorgeous state of Colorado in the summer, and the intense desert state of Arizona in the winter.  It is her desire to transport the viewer directly to the moment she has captured and hope they find the peace and power that only nature can give.

Her art career began when she taught craft lessons to children in her parents' Forest Hills apartment complex when she was seven, and designed cards for her parents' party invitations in Brussels. With a degree in Fine Art from the University of Colorado, Paula has been involved in galleries, painting and framing for more than twenty years.
