Featured artists depict the influence of Jack Frost on the Western landscape and its inhabitants
Sorrel Sky Gallery in Santa Fe opens its Winter Wonderland Group Show on Friday, January 1 with a reception from 5:00 to 7:30pm. Portrayals of the western landscape and its inhabitants fill the gallery offering reflection upon the beauty and quintessential aspects of wintertime. The show presents works by many of the gallery’s most prominent painters and jewelry artists including Stephen Day, Cynthia DeBolt, Carrie Fell, Edward Aldrich, Cody Sanderson and Ben Nighthorse, among others.
Painter Stephen Day’s shimmering landscapes in oil capture the mesmerizing quality of light found during the darkest season of the year. Cynthia DeBolt’s unique semi-abstract oil paintings of the land offer a view of winter’s stillness and quietude. Carrie Fell’s signature style and warm, vibrant palette energize her paintings of western winter scenes, reminding us of the power of this season. Edward Aldrich’s sophisticated portrayals of animals reach beyond the realistic rendering of wildlife, conveying the inherent nature of animals in their winter habitat.
Native American jewelry artists Cody Sanderson and Ben Nighthorse each utilize a symbolic representation of snow in unique ways in his highly sought after jewelry.
Sorrel Sky Gallery owner, Shanan Campbell Wells, said, “Winter Wonderland spotlights the work of our artists who find inspiration in the stillness, subtle beauty and activity of the year’s coolest season.”
