Stacey Peterson was born in 1978 and raised in Littleton, Colorado. 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 depict 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's 15th and 16th national exhibitions.

Aldrich "Tending the Herd" 22 x 44 Oil


More than a faithful reproduction, the wildlife art of Edward Aldrich captures the very essence of the animal as well...Each image becomes a stolen moment with an animal.  – InformArt Magazine
Edward Aldrich is an artist dedicated to reaching beyond the realistic rendering of wildlife and the natural world. He is convinced that conveying the inherent being of an animal is integral to his work. His style breathes life into his subjects and invokes the viewer into feeling that he or she is actually a witness to the scene. The viewer is not left to simply look and appreciate, but is drawn into experiencing the essence of what is depicted. In short, his is an art of feeling as well as portrayal.

Antique Native American Jewelry in Petrified Wood & Turquoise Available at Saks Galleries Cherry Creek Denver


Oldest Fine Art Gallery in Colorado. 

Pueblo 1930's petrified wood and turquoise bracelet.         $650

  
The 1930’s were a time of economic hardship on the Indian reservations. Among the Pueblo silversmiths it became popular to use pre-cut stones other than turquoise – petrified wood, agates, and jaspers. Some of the smiths worked independently but most worked for the shops or large producers such as Maisels in Albuquerque and Southwest Indian Arts in Santa Fe. The new materials, along with improved tools and techniques resulted in a blossoming of styles and innovation. Filigree work and tiny raindrops, fleur-de-lis designs, and combinations of hard stones with turquoise accents, all were introduced in the 1930’s. Today we recognize that silverwork and attention to detail in these curio trade pieces are truly fine and represent an important period in the history of Southwest silver. Please enjoy our present selection.

Rare Pueblo Turquoise Bracelet Available at Saks Galleries Cherry Creek Denver



Oldest Fine Art Gallery in Colorado


The story of Southwestern Indian jewelry is a study of evolving techniques. Talking about a bracelet that recently came our way might be a good introduction to the subject.

Pueblo, 1930's, Turquoise and Hand Pulled Twisted Square Wire Foundation Bracelet
This bracelet was made circa 1930 and although the arrangement of the stones might lead some to think it is Navajo in origin, with a large central stone flanked by two smaller turquoise, that is probably not correct. The ornate scrollwork gives this a Pueblo origin, likely Isleta. The cushion-shaped turquoise are a natural Nevada web and hand cut. But the most interesting feature of this beautifully made bracelet is the foundation. There are three square wires, the outside two being twisted to simulate rope work. These square wires were handmade by drawing ingot silver (usually melted from coins) through a drawplate made of metal or bone. You can see the plier marks and imperfections on the middle wire. This technique died out in the 1930’s, which means that this bracelet was made by a smith of the old school. The delicate scrollwork on the top of the bracelet is highly unusual in that it too is made of hand-pulled square wire. The smith who made this piece took great pride in his work and the terminals are beautifully and carefully finished as well.                                        
$2,000
