Enjoy An Exclusive Look at Artist Kim English - Exhibition Opens Tonight May 20, 2011

View Kim English Video

A few months ago we started a dialogue about a series on videos interviewing the Saks Galleries artists. We got a little curious about how our artists viewed life. Thus the whole living artfully transpired. We learned a lot, in fact, video taping our artists has proven inspiring and noteworthy. Click on our You Tube button on our home page menu to view all of the videos produced this year. We learned how the artists see themselves, childhood insights, who encouraged them and what triggers their passion to paint or sculpt.

The life of an artist is challenging, focused, uplifting. It's a life - living artfully.

Enjoy this exclusive and intimate video of master painter Kim English as he discusses how he observes the world around him and what his favorite place in the world to paint is.

Kim English's solo exhibition "Observations" opens this evening at 5:00pm here at Saks
Galleries in Cherry Creek Denver, Colorado through June 18, 2011. You can view the entire exhibition on our website.

A Fascinating Look at the Art of a Young Surrealist

Reception and Demonstration
Saturday, May 14, 2011
12:00 - 3:00 pm

Please join us in celebrating the art of Andrea T. Kemp at Saks Galleries on Saturday afternoon. Andrea will be at the gallery to meet patrons and demonstrate her unique perspective on surrealist imagery.

Andrea says of art..."You can create powerful images by focusing on the ordinary because you are forced to look at the abstraction of forms." Andrea's work depicts mystery and surrealism which offer people to dig below the surface and find more than a first or second glance. Her paintings are an experience.
