Silver City is home to a vibrant and amazing community of artists. Always drawn to this area, and after visiting often over the years, I finally made the leap and have part of this artist community since early 2017. I’m continually inspired at the variety and quality of work and, drawing on my graphics business experience, have decided to provide a venue to get this wonderful, exciting art to a wider audience. First, it was to be entirely online, and then the opportunity to open a brick and mortar presented, and the rest is unfolding.
My aim is to provide collectors access to this hidden gem of artistic talent, artists a means to market their work to a wider audience, and to extend an invitation those seeking fine art to visit our city.
