Virtual Gallery Tour

Our team welcomes you to take a virtual gallery tour. 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, historic town of Basalt.

“Our goal is for everyone who knows our gallery to learn and see something new with every experience,” shares gallery owner, Ann Korologos. “Not only will you find art you’d love to live with, you’ll come away with a deeper understanding of our artists, their styles, and contemporary Western Art. Our staff is extremely knowledgeable, and our gallery dogs are happy to say hello any day of the week.” Meet our team >

Virtual Gallery Tour: Discover Art You Love to Live With

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. 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.

History of Basalt, Colorado

Basalt was originally part of the Ute Indian Reservation and Hunting Grounds. This vast land area was created in 1868 by an act of Congress and signed by President Grant and extended as far up the valley as Aspen and as far down the valley as Glenwood Springs and up north to Meeker.

Basalt is the result of a merging of two communities: Frying Pan Junction and Aspen Junction. Frying Pan Junction was established in 1882 and then the tent town of Aspen Junction came along around 1885.

The name Frying Pan has several stories of how it got its name. One of the stories is that the trout were so plentiful that they pretty much jumped from the river right into your frying pan.
