Art gallery spotlight: Ann Korologos Gallery
Ann Korologos Gallery in historic downtown Basalt is the premier source for contemporary Western Art in the Roaring Fork Valley and beyond. Acclaimed local and national painters, sculptors, printmakers, mixed-media artists, and photographers share their connection with the landscapes, cultures and characters of the American West through their own unique language.
“Our goal is for every interaction with the gallery to add beauty and depth to your life,” shares gallery director Sue Edmonds. “Every visit offers the opportunity to learn something new about an artist, a place, a moment, or yourself. Art is an integral part of our cultural heritage, now and always, and the works our artists are creating are inspirational and soothing. Whether connecting with us virtually or in Old Town Basalt, we believe you will be transported by their insight and creativity.”
This season, explore nature’s abstractions by Michael Kessler and Allison Stewart, expressionist landscapes by Andy Taylor, and high-keyed still lifes by Angus Wilson.
