Valley Fine Art Classic American Art: 1865 - Present Documenting Change in America Across Three Centuries 213 South Mill Street | Aspen 970.920.9193 valleyfineart.com

F

or twenty years, Valley Fine Art—located on Mill Street at the historic Wheeler Opera House in downtown Aspen—has been a focal point for clients interested in great American art that tells the unfolding story of the American West. Some of the greatest American artists and photographers, living and historical, find a home for their work at the gallery, which also features sculpture, custom fine woodworking, and old pawn jewelry. At Valley Fine Art, both the artists and the art come to life in a new way that has something important to say about where we come from, and where we’re going. Could anyone be more different than artist Andy Warhol and the legendary photographer Edward S. Curtis? Warhol was an American artist who was a leading figure in the visual art movement in the 1960’s known as pop art, while Curtis documented images of over 80 different Native American tribes. Curtis’s epic body of work “The North American Indian” stands the largest and most complete ethnographic study of Native Americans. Yet both have created masterpieces based on the same living history: “Geronimo,” a screenprint by Andy Warhol, and “Geronimo—Apache,” a



Art in aspen // winter 2013

vintage photogravure by Edward S. Curtis. And both hang side by side at Valley Fine Art in Aspen, home to important artists documenting change in America across three centuries. The collector with a discriminating eye invariably finds much to admire at Valley Fine Art, an Aspen gallery that is always in the process of re-inventing itself even as the high quality stands the test of time. It’s no surprise, then, that many collectors return to build their collections, though the gallery is also a magnet for new clients waiting to be enchanted by a whole new way of looking at America through the eyes of some of its greatest artists and photographers.

hen defining the importance of art, artist and gallery owner Ann Korologos says it best: “A gallery is a place where you can lose yourself in your own moment and travel to the artist’s moment. Art brings out our humanness and our instincts for something greater than ourselves.” Her gallery is about that humanness — the culture and the connections that make us art fans and art lovers. Her passions for connecting artists and collectors, for bringing together thinkers, writers and other cultural leaders into her gallery, all combine for an intellectual, inspiring experience. Guests walk in to find a gallery filled with contemporary western fine art created by internationally-known masters such as Dan Namingha, Thomas Lasansky, Cheri Christensen and sculptor Gordon Gund. Regional favorites Dan Young, Jill Soukup, Gregory Stocks, Elizabeth Sandia , Andy Taylor an emerging artist Marie Figge Wise are also represented. As a cultural venue, the gallery’s art and literature series has hosted such respected writers such as Walter Isaacson, Dr. Ben Carson and Secretary Madeline Albright. Korologos summed up her gallery: “We exhibit Western art, and artists influenced by the West. But we also know that the West is as varied as the landscape and the artists living here.”

orld-renowned, highly awarded, and boasting a huge international following, Peter Lik stands at the summit of landscape photography. The Peter Lik Gallery in Aspen displays some of Lik’s finest masterworks, including the classic fall shot, “Yellow.” Shown in an epic 6-foot by 10-foot format, “Yellow” captures the beauty of Aspen through Peter Lik’s lens and is a must see for all Aspen art collectors. Lik began his journey with humble origins. Born in Melbourne, Australia, to Czech immigrants, it was his parents’ gift of a Kodak Brownie camera on his eighth birthday that set him on his course. Entirely self-taught, Lik worked hard at his craft before making the life-changing decision to come to the United States in 1984. While here, Lik was introduced to the medium format panoramic camera, a defining moment in his career as a photographer. This larger-than-life camera compelled Peter to rise to its challenge to “go big or go home.”

For decades, Peter Lik has redefined the scope of landscape photography and shared his unique vision with others in his books, on his recent television show and through the numerous galleries he has opened in both the United States and abroad including the Peter Lik Aspen Gallery, opened in 2008. Recognized as a Master Photographer in both the United States, where several of his pieces have been on display in the Smithsonian, and his homeland Australia, Peter Lik also continues to align himself with several charitable organizations to promote local economies and raise the profile of important environmental issues. Now at the top of his game, Peter Lik is “loving it!” at full throttle; this animated Aussie is showing no signs of slowing down. Come visit us at the Peter Lik Aspen Gallery, located at the historic Isis building, and experience the world through the lens of Peter Lik.

he Red Brick Center for the Arts plays a unique role in the arts and nonprofit communities of Aspen. The building itself is a unique venue — formerly a school but more recently renovated — it is now home to 14 artists-in-residence, nine nonprofit organizations, a performing arts/dance studio, a community conference room with state-of-the-art audio/visual, and a gallery for monthly exhibitions of Roaring Fork artists.
