The Ann Korologos Gallery in Basalt, Colorado presents Andy Taylor: New Works, opening on Saturday, March 18, 2017 with an artist’s reception from 5-7 pm. The exhibition features regional landscapes in Taylor’s colorful, gestural style. The artist will be on hand to discuss his work and take questions during the opening reception.
For more than forty years, Andy Taylor has been drawing and painting scenery within a day’s drive of Carbondale: the 250 miles to the north, south and west, across the Colorado Plateau, with its spectacular canyons, high plains, distant mesas, winding rivers, sparse trees and sundry vegetation. He is most interested in the colors, the shapes, the weather and the occasional places where water changes things. His loyal collectors enjoy hanging the easily identifiable landmarks such as the cliffs outside Rifle and Chinle Wash in Chaco Canyon on their walls.
“For me painting is about exploration and discovery: exploring different ways of seeing or different ways of expressing what I see and discovering what I want to paint and discovering things as I paint. And, if successful, the result is hopefully an engaging visual treat.”
His audience has expanded beyond the Roaring Fork Valley over the years, boosted most recently by his selection as a National Western Club Artist (2015-2017) in the annual Coors Western Art Exhibit & Sale in Denver.
As the premier showcase for Western contemporary art, the Ann Korologos Gallery proudly offers a wide array of Western artists working in a variety of media and representing diverse artistic traditions. Many of those artists’ works will complement the Andy Taylor exhibition, including photographs by Aspen-based photographer Devin Pool, and narrative paintings by New York artist Brett Scheifflee.
Andy Taylor: New Work will remain on view through March 15, 2017. For more information, please visit the gallery at 211 Midland Avenue in Basalt or call 970.927.9668.
