‘Out of the West’ and Trudi Peet in Basalt
September 19, 2014
The Ann Korologos Gallery in Basalt hosts an artists' reception Friday evening for "Out of the West — Landscapes," a new exhibition featuring a broad spectrum of works influenced by the Western landscape.
The show highlights works by Dan Young, who grew up in the Roaring Fork Valley, among others. Artistic styles range from plein-air landscapes of Andy Taylor to Leon Loughridge's woodblock prints to the pure abstraction of Michael Kessler's acrylics, with media ranging from traditional oils to digital photography. The exhibit is on view through Oct. 31.
It's one of a handful of openings in Basalt on Friday, also including the Wyly Art Center's "Trudi Peet: Memorial Exhibition," honoring the longtime local artist, who died last year. Peet's subject matter, whether captured in oil, acrylic, ink, clay or metal, represents situations with animals, people with animals, people without animals and landscapes without people. Half of sales from the show will go to Doctors Without Borders. The exhibition is up through Oct. 30.
