Bobbi Walker | Owner
Art is inspiring because it gives us a glimpse into our own true essence.
It also reflects our collective humanity, encouraging us to feel deeply and think broadly.
Art heals by lifting our spirits and bringing us together in conversation about the ever-changing state of the world.
As patrons, we are the guardians of culture, we are called upon to instill the value, and thereby, ensuring the gift of art for future generations.
Libby Garon | Gallery Manager
Your role: As Gallery Manager, I intend to build strong client relationships that are founded on trust. Through innovative marketing strategy, business development, artwork sales and general operation, I strive to share my passion for art in everything I do.
Your story: As an art lover, I have been fortunate to have the arts as a constant in my life. Growing up as a ballet dancer in the Bay Area, CA, then studying studio art with a focus in printmaking at Mount Holyoke College in MA, to continuing to make my own work here in Denver, the arts are in my blood. I continue to make and sell my own work, and appreciate having both perspectives of the artist and arts professional.
