Please join us on Thursday February, 23rd at the Oh Be Joyful Gallery in Crested Butte for an ArtWalk evening featuring artist Dave Santillanes.
Dave will be in the gallery during ArtWalk from 5-8pm. We will have his newest works on display! As always, hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served.
Residing in Fort Collins, CO, Santillanes travels the West to depict landscapes ranging from the Colorado Rockies to the desert Southwest. His paintings have a wonderful atmospheric quality and distinct style that capture the landscape with a reverent tone. In his work, Santillanes strives to convey the essence of what he sees rather than “a literal rendering of the scene”.
Dave is attracting much deserved attention and press of late. Learn more about Dave on our website here. Check out Dave’s feature article in Southwest Art December 2011. Keep an eye out for Dave painting around town this week, as he finds inspiration in and around our tiny mountain town.
Please stop in for a visit, we’d love to catch up.
