Just like the song Magic Penny, there is magic in the artwork by Colorado artist Penny Stewart and I think her work inspires music. Penny Stewart is not a resident artist at the gallery but this award-winning guest artist’s work should be in every collection. For a special brief appearance, Penny Stewart is coming to Hunter-Wolff Gallery on Saturday, January 22 to exhibit her collection of magical landscape paintings.

Admirers and collectors share an intimacy with her subject and enjoy the  journey of exploration through color, form, and composition. She portrays nature at its most colorful moments and brings out subtle nuances of light and shadow to emphasize the spirit of a place. Penny Stewart is known for her tranquil landscapes and a sense of peacefulness washes over the viewer.

Not only can she capture the beauty and grandeur of the West in oil or watercolor, but also the poetic beauty of lesser-travelled places.  Inspired by rolling hills, peaceful meadows, idyllic lakes and blue skies filled with puffy white clouds, she spends hours outdoors studying nature, ever changing hues, and atmospheric conditions to capture a special mood. I expect anyone who appreciates art will experience a connection and appreciate the fine qualities of  “Magic Penny”. Can you feel the connection?

Take a closer look on Saturday, January 22 from 5:00 – 8:30 pm during Guest Artist Penny Stewart’s Opening Night. We welcome your comments and praise!
