Beauty All Around Us

|

Time to read 1 min

When our daily routine is affected in ways we’ve never experienced before, we look for things that contribute to our sense of order and calm. Taking the time to soak up the beauty all around us is grounding and reassuring. Beauty in nature provides a comforting setting to process the disorder that may surround us. That same beauty, found in art, lets you create your own sanctuary or oasis of tranquility.


Join us, today and over the next weeks, as we explore how several of our artists find inspiration in the beauty all around us. Discover how they turn that inspiration into art that you can enjoy in your own home, in your own sanctuary of calm.

“I don’t think it’s ever a good idea to sacrifice artistry for accuracy.”

Star Liana York

Sorrel Sky Gallery

Since moving to the Southwest in 1985, Star Liana York has been creating a vast body of work that reflects her interest in the people, animals, environment and history of the region. A continuing source of inspiration for her bronze sculptures comes from exploring the native peoples of the Southwest and the mythology of ancient sacred sites. She is an avid horsewoman, riding daily on her ranch near Abiquiu, New Mexico, where she finds inspiration surrounded by the vast open vistas.

“Nothing is more exhilarating than riding the nearby trails. After a day’s work, or on the weekends with friends, I’m always stimulated by the beauty of the landscape, the resident wildlife and of course the horses. And a sunset ride … magnificent!”

Here are several of Star’s pieces as seen in both our Durango and Santa Fe galleries. Imagine them in your home. Explore her collection on our website. Talk one of our art advisors about our “art on approval” program. Ask about our Photoshop services to get an idea of what a piece would look like in your home.

Join Star as she gives you a tour of her studio and discusses her inspiration, process, technique and her horses.

Reach out to our  team of art advisors  with any questions about the products seen in this blog. We'd love to see you in any of our 3 locations, where you can enjoy these pieces in person.
