Participating artists, in association with Gallery 1261 in Denver, include three prominent Colorado artists Quang Ho, Daniel Sprick, and Scott Fraser.
Quang Ho is an internationally recognized artist whose work is highly sought-after by collectors and galleries. His paintings have been described as ‘expressive realism’ but he prefers not to categorize his work as either abstract or any other painting style. As an instructor at the Denver Art Students League, Ho teaches and inspires his devoted students while continuing to produce and sell outstanding artwork.
Daniel Sprick is a Glenwood Springs resident whose works can be found in the National Museum of Art, the Smithsonian Institution, the Denver Art Museum, and many other notable public collections. Sprick’s style has been described as contemporary realism with a profound surreal quality.
Scott Fraser, an esteemed Longmont resident, is also a contemporary realist, who often injects his work with subtle humor. His artwork is included in the collections of the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Denver Art Museum, and numerous international collections.
20 artists showcased are from the Boulder/Longmont area, including Jason Emery, Olga Plam, Boris Sarikov, Colleen Hoerner, and Judith Trager.
Jason Emery is a colorist representational artist whose signature style incorporates broad strokes and juicy colors. He works primarily en plein air (on location) and is recognized this year as a returning participant in the prestigious 18th Annual Governor’s Invitational Art Show.
Olga Plam is a Russian born painter whose realist painting technique is highly influenced by the Old Masters. She is a signature member of the Oil Painters of America (OPA) and has been recognized with national awards and whose artwork resides in private collections internationally.
Boris Sarikov, sculptor, came to the United States from Bulgaria. His work incorporates a variety of materials including silver, gold, bronze, and natural elements including wood and stone. His works are owned by the Belgian royal family and private collectors from New York, Paris, Zurich, and throughout Europe.
