Stacey Peterson
Growing up at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, Stacey developed a love for the outdoors that influences her artwork today. An avid hiker, backpacker and runner, Peterson draws upon her time outdoors to provide the inspiration for her landscape paintings. She often works on location, and uses her plein air studies as reference for studio works that depicts locations in the wilderness areas of Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West. Stacey is an award-winning painter, most recently honored with an Honorable Mention in the Salon International Show, and awards of excellence at the Oil Painters of America 15th and 16th national exhibitions.

Daniel Glanz "Lazy Days" bronze

Meet Colorado sculptor Daniel Glanz

May 5, 2012
1pm - 4pm

Dan is currently working on a table top Saint Bernard in clay form. He will discuss the process of developing a finished bronze piece from this stage. Saks Galleries will exhibit several new canine sculptures.

Daniel began his career in illustration and fine art photography with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute.  His art is known for its energy, movement and technical mastery.  Both figurative and wildlife work share a powerful yet elegant quality, drawn from his classical approach to sculpture. Daniel says of his work, ”I would like the viewer to develop some kind of feeling about the animals I sculpt, whether those feelings are fearsome or friendly, intense or serene, joyous or sad. I try to capture the spirit and feeling I see in my subject and convey them to you the viewer.”

His work, which is created in his studios in Colorado, range in size from tabletop to monumental.  Daniel’s editions and commissions grace many private collections and public art programs.  Many recognize the monumental Jaguar that graces a perch in Vail, Colorado.

Dogs Welcome - Light Refreshments and Treats Served
