Coors Western Art Show part II
Joel Ostlind - "You Can Get Hooked," hand colored etching. Sold for $5,000
Congratulations to all of our artists who are showing at the Coors Western Art Show this month, and a special congratulations to Joel Ostlind. Joel’s hand colored etching, “You Can Get Hooked” sold for a record amount, more than 10 times its listed value. “You Can Get Hooked” was a popular etching that sold out of edition quickly. Joel decided to add watercolor to an artist’s proof and place it in the silent auction. Apparently that was a clever thing to do. The piece was listed with a value of $500. A fierce bidding war ensued, and this special little etching ended up going to the high bidder for $5,000! Congratulations Joel – you deserve all your success. And for all of you who aren’t able to make it to the Coors show in Denver this month, join us March 8, for our group exhibition featuring Janet Nelson, Heather Foster, Dinah Worman, and Joel Ostlind. Joel will be at the reception to demonstrate his printmaking technique live and in the gallery. See you there.
