Documenting Change in America

Documenting Change in America

I am writing to share a very special and exciting announcement: beginning May 1st, Valley Fine Art will transition from its traditional, physical storefront in downtown Aspen to a comprehensive online presence offering full-service, fine art dealing functionality. I am incredibly grateful for your support of our commercial gallery location over the last twenty-five years—thank you. This change is motivated by my desire to spend more time working on your behalf and visiting with you. My ongoing availability to you will change only in a tremendously increased capacity to work with you personally, at any time and place most convenient for you, to extend bespoke fine art services and private fine art brokerage calibrated to the highest level of specificity. Our contact information will remain unchanged, and I am always accessible via email, phone, and zoom.

Artwork at Valley Fine Art

Our commitments to the artists we represent, the artwork we promote, and the clients we serve are steadfast. Valley Fine Art will continue, without disruption, the representation of its entire stable of contemporary artists. We are even further expanding our activity and visibility in secondary art markets, such as those of Edward S. Curtis and Andy Warhol, to offer unparalleled private brokerage opportunities, both buying and selling. We will also begin offering a full-spectrum fine art services menu, including estate disposition, collection management, and guest curation.

I would welcome any opportunity to discuss the quality and diversity of artwork among the gallery’s current offerings, our procurement and consignment processes should you wish to buy or sell specifically, as well as the range of fine art professional services now available.  Please visit us online or contact me directly.

Theodore Waddell (b. 1941)

Waddell’s paintings are a combination of rough marks; thick paint; transparent elegant strokes; and, on a few occasions a slow, hard line scratched into the canvas. You can feel the movement of the paint throughout the paintings, but the subjects are frozen. They are not frozen as a stagnant object but captured as a solitary image. 

Edward S. Curtis (1868-1952)

No photographer has rivaled the breadth and depth of Curtis’ exploration of Native American life, culture, and portraiture. The quality of Curtis’ imagery also remains unrivaled among any other photo ethnographic undertaking.

Juan Carlos Collada (b. 1966)

Inspired by nature, Collada is best known for his three-dimensional butterfly themed works, ethereal and graceful pieces that climb the walls and take on a life of their own. Collada carefully hand dyes and paints feathers for his butterflies.  

Helping You Discover The Perfect Piece

In an advisory capacity, Valley Fine Art supports its clients in building legacy collections as well as identifying and valuing Edward S Curtis photographs for sale.

Located in the historic Wheeler Opera House, Valley Fine Art has welcomed visitors from all over the world for over two decades.

“Having learned that The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum and the Estate of Edward Curtis turned to Valley Fine Art to value and authenticate their collections, we chose to work exclusively with Valley Fine Arts to build our collection of original Curtis photographs and western photography.” – Private Collector, Oklahoma City
