Contemporary Artists

For more than 20 years, Ann Korologos Gallery has been the premier source for contemporary Western Art, known for artists inspired by frontier culture and the beauty of the American West. Local and national painters, sculptors, printmakers, mixed-media artists, and photographers tell the stories of the West through their unique language and styles. The spacious gallery is located just downstream of Aspen, Colorado in the charming town of Basalt.

Inspired by the Beauty of the American West

Through Ann Korologos Gallery, discover regional landscapes by Andy Taylor, Dan Young, Leon Loughridge, and Marie Figge Wise; be transported by the bold expressionist still lifes of Scottish-born artist Angus Wilson; and examine the stereotypes and misunderstandings of the Old West as painted by Terry Gardner. Explore familiar vistas and fisheries by local artist Dan Young. Feel the strength and vibrancy of ranching women by Donna Howell-Sickles, and be awe-struck by the beauty of the open plains on which they roam by Linda Lillegraven.

Modern-day Western Art

Take home a modern-day relic of a ceramic horse by Amy Laugesen or a pot by Michael Wisner, who hand-digs his clay and carves every object with nature’s most meticulous patterns. Experience the classic realism of still lifes by Sarah Lamb, and observe the way that Dinah Worman arranges landscapes as though they were still lifes. All manner of wildlife — great and small — evoke humor and nostalgia through works by Mike Weber, Sandra Kaplan, Gordon Gund, Heather Foster, and Paula Schuette Kraemer. The 40 artists represented by Ann Korologos Gallery are as diverse as the colors, contours and characters of the American West.

The Joy of Discovery

“One of the joys of working with contemporary artists is that their process is continuously unveiling and evolving intent, technique, and subject, allowing us the excitement of following along on their journey and learning alongside them,” shares owner, Ann Korologos. “Our goal as a gallery is for everyone who visits to discover something new with each experience and find art they would love to live with. Our staff is extremely knowledgeable, and our gallery dogs are happy to say hello any day of the week.”
