February 28, 2014 – Altamira Fine Art in Scottsdale is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by painter Jared Sanders. The show, entitled “Landmarks,” will be on exhibit March 10 through March 22, with a reception for the artist on Thursday, March 20, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. The western landscape offers up a wealth of abstract elements to Jared Sanders’ eye. Structural, humanmade influences take up a dialogue with the natural curves of the land. He likes to put the horizon line low in a painting so that the overall feel becomes calm and restful, yet not without a certain tension still being held in the composition. In his latest work, Sanders continues his exploration of barns in the landscape. Utilizing brighter, more vibrant colors than in past work, Sanders has broadened his palette to represent a wide range of mood and light. The Utah-based artist will feature several paintings based on landscapes from Northern Arizona in this latest show, including humble Native American structures juxtaposed against rich desert skyscapes. Jared Sanders was born in 1970 in Kaysville, Utah. He studied art with Glen Edwards at Utah State University. It wasn’t long after graduation that Sanders attracted the attention of both galleries and collectors. Sanders currently lives near the small town of Heber, Utah, and paints the enduring forms of farmlands, hills, rivers, and trees that he intimately knows and loves. Sanders considers himself a regionalist, and travels the winding roads of the West for his inspiration. Sanders’ selected awards include the 2000 Art for the Parks People’s Choice Award, a 2003 Award for Best Oil or Acrylic at Maynard Dixon Country; and the 2004 Purchase Award at Deseret News Landscape Art Show “Color of The Land.” In September 2000, he was featured in Southwest Art’s “21 under 31.” He has had over a dozen oneman shows in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Sedona, Arizona, Park City, Utah, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. His heroic canvas, the 72” x 60” Landmark, was acquired in 2013 by the Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s Whitney Gallery for their permanent collection.
