Sharon Wolff is a respected entrepreneur and the successful owner of Hunter-Wolff Gallery since 2005. Not all that surprising, however, she continues to expand her growing business when others have struggled during locally impacting wildfires and floods, economic downturns, and a world-threatening pandemic. She says that her secret to success is listening carefully to her patrons and delivering what she promises.
As Hunter-Wolff Gallery grows, Wolff has been able to better focus on a wider cross-section of Colorado accomplished artists who have an average of 25 years or more experience. Wolff looks for the accomplished but also the “up and coming” emerging artists with unique creativity and the potential to take their success to the next level.
Propelled by a strong drive to succeed, an inherent business sense, and “can do” attitude, Wolff follows her business plan that she regularly revisits and modifies for optimum success. Having celebrated 16 years of operation, Wolff’s reputation and success has received the attention of the art community and its art lovers. Wolff thrives on selecting and showcasing new talent and she enjoys mentoring artists needing an edge to get the attention of collectors and galleries.
Achieving success in the competitive art business is a testament to the strength of her values. Wolff is committed to providing her patrons with an enriched experience and the highest level of customer service. Building a long-lasting relationship with its valued clients is the hallmark of Hunter-Wolff Gallery’s philosophy.

As a jewelry artist, she also specializes in custom projects that involve a profound collaboration with the client and discernment about what may be emerging by seeking expression in consciousness.

Say hello to Theresa Barbera! She has lived in Colorado Springs for most of her life and became a successful business owner in Old Colorado City for 18 years. As a sales representative, Theresa knows how to get the job done! Her friendly demeanor, positive attitude and engaging smile make visits to the gallery a treat. If you have not met her in person, you may have had the pleasure of talking with Theresa over the phone.
Theresa is a multitasker and has more balls up in the air than a juggler. Sometimes at the gallery, we all feel like jugglers. But her ability to handle more than one task professionally isn’t just handy. I can assure our clients they are always in good hands with Theresa. She understands the importance of team work. As a successful business owner herself, she focused on important skills like critical thinking and excellent decision-making, and delivers effective communications, top-notch customer care and all the necessary business skills for a smooth day-to-day operation. Because she enjoys meeting new people and sharing information about our 40+ artists and their ever-changing exhibits at the gallery, we hope you will stop in soon. She loves art and would love to show you around Hunter-Wolff Gallery.
