Location: 409 Third Street, Crested Butte
Details: Join us for the last ArtWalk evening of the season and artist Don Sahli who will be visiting from Evergreen,CO.  On Thursday, September 26th from 5-8pm, Don will be in the gallery sharing his latest works.  Hors d'oeurvres and refreshments served. 

Don Sahli made the decision to become a professional artist at a very early age.  By the time he was 17 years old, art galleries in Texas and New Mexico were selling his paintings.  Sahli has earned his living as a professional artist all his adult life. 

Sahli began his formal art education at the University of Texas in Austin.  A year later, he met Sergei Bongart, the famous Russian colorist.  At Bongart's invitation, Sahli followed him to California and became his last apprentice.  He remained with the Russian for three years, until Bongart's death in 1985.

The broad range of Sahli's work shows his talent as a painter and his philosophy toward painting.  "When I look at a painting, I want it to bring me back to when I was on the scene.  I want it to convey the drama and emotion that first captured my attention-the atmosphere and the soul of the place.  This is the goal of my work- to go past just the image to touch the viewer in a way that evokes emotion".

To see his works online, go to www.ohbejoyfulgallery.com.

For more information, call the gallery at (970) 349-5936.  This event is free and open to the public.
