Sam Shows How Fine Art Makes Him Smile
What does it feel like to have the best job in the world? I can tell you. Owning a gallery for the past 7 years has brought much joy and laughter into my life, and often doesn’t feel like work at all. Nearly every day I meet people who appreciate the talents of fine artists and share their joy with me whether they are buying their very first piece or their 100th piece. It is so exciting to be part of this process.
Sam purchased his first original painting from Hunter-Wolff Gallery and on this day, he is smiling about his second purchase (a beautiful oil painting by Penny Stewart). He might be smiling too because he made a decision to layaway a third painting that he will pick up next month. Sam serves our country in the USAF and is all about US made and doing his part to support Americans.
Now doesn’t this sound like I have the best job in the world? Everyday I am surrounded by beautiful art–paintings, pottery, sculpture, blown glass and wonderful, interesting people. There is one downfall, however. I want to bring it all home with me.
Put a smile on your face today, and start collecting fine art–made here in America!

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!
