Thanks to all of you who attended our 1 year celebration at our location in Colorado Springs. It was very nice to see you!

Winnie Wall Winnie Wall has been an artist and a collector of fine art for many years. Her love of art began many years ago as a young child in Hong Kong. She was greatly influenced by her father who was an art lover. He collected paintings for the family residence so that his children would learn to appreciate the finer things in life. He especially enjoyed the work of the French impressionists and always had books about them close at hand. At a young age, Winnie studied these books and was fascinated by these masters of color and light. In later years, she tried to emulate the techniques of these artists. In recent years, as an art gallery owner, Winnie has traveled throughout the world collecting numerous works by both realists and impressionists. She has dedicated much of her time studying and developing her techniques and her own style of impressionism. She has been tutored by several experienced impressionists and has learned the finer points of working with acrylic. She is challenged by a variety of subjects and her paintings are reflective of her world traveling experiences. She paints scenes of quaint European villages with blazing flower gardens to golden beaches and towering arches along the ocean coasts. The changing seasons in the majestic mountains of Colorado, where she resides, also provide great subjects for her works. Her paintings have been placed in galleries across the nation for both the casual buyer as well as the collector. Her vibrant colors, values, and compositions have propelled her into a special class of new American impressionists.

Ramon Kelley of Irish and Mexican American descent was born in 1939 in the Spanish barrio of Cheyenne, Wyoming as the nation was recovering from the depression. One of ten children, he dropped out of school early after graduating eighth grade to make a living shining shoes, selling papers, working in a used-car dealership and took a job driving a truck for a Greek poultry merchant in his home town. He later worked as a ranch hand until he was old enough to join the Navy. Ramon’s artistic abilities where prevalent at a young age he loved to draw, even after leaving school, his drive to explore his creative talents continued while he worked long hours as a teenager. In the Navy, he had the opportunity to visit the great art centers of Europe and would study the paintings in great detail in an attempt to improve on his own work. Primarily self-taught, he later received a scholarship to the Colorado Institute of Art in Denver and by the early 1960’s had settled permanently in Denver. Needing to support his wife and young son, he worked as an illustrator and graphic designer, making portrait drawings in the evenings. Jane Hiatt, owner of the Village Gallery in Taos, New Mexico, suggested Ramon move into color and paint. His career in fine art was off and running. His first watercolor was accepted into the American Watercolor Society’s annual exhibition, where it won the Helen Gapen Oehler Award. At the same time, Ramon adopted pastel and became one of the first members of the Pastel Society of America. In 1985, the Pastel Society designated Ramon a Master Pastelist and in 1986, was elected to the Pastel Hall of Fame by the Pastel Society of America in New York City. He is a member of Oil Painters of America and the National Academy of Western Art. Kelley now is among the most recognized and collected artists in the U.S. He works in watercolor, pastel, acrylic, oil paint and charcoal. He has produced many fine art landscapes but is most famous for his insightful character portraits and his reflective nudes, almost always of beautiful Hispanic or Indian women. Earning recognition as a young artists and continuing to grow professionally, Ramon Kelley credits Russian artist Nicolai Fechin as a major influence on his strong figural painting. Kelley says, “There is no more beautiful landscape in the world than that of the female figure”(Southwest Art Magazine 5/98). Kelley is no stranger to hard work. He knows well the emotional and technical peaks and valleys of an artis’s life. He studies carefully the problems (both emotional and technical) of other artist’s and tries to learn from their strengths and weaknesses. He struggles with himself to produce the best of which he is capable. The art of Ramon Kelley is full of emotion. The observer becomes one with the paintings, the character of his models, their mood and their thoughts. His still life’s of everyday objects are beautiful and enriching, allowing the patron to parallel Ramon’s emotion with their own. In all mediums, he is a master. It is a joy to have and to live with his art as part of your life. Ramon Kelley’s artistic career has been dedicated to the pursuit and enrichment of fine arts. His works are in many collections, including at the New Mexico Museum of Fine Arts and the US Military Academy Museum at West Point. Ramon Kelley has been featured in many magazines including: Southwest Art and Art of the West. Best known for his insightful portraits and classic nudes, Ramon and his wife are residents of Denver, Colorado.

Goli Mahallati’s original acrylics and limited edition prints on canvas or board, often depict aspects of humanity. Her images of individuals alone and in communal groups are stirring. The deeper felt reaction to her work goes beyond any type of provincial artistic genre and strikes at the elemental state of the human condition, sometimes bound together in support and love, and at other times isolated, either alone or in a crowd. The strength of the artist’s statement is enforced by her choice to work with a pallet knife, rather than with the more traditional brush, creating bold areas of color and texture. It isn’t often that an artist is able to touch our inner feelings through the truth of their images. Goli Mahallati has that ability. Hers is a work of kinship and admiration for the beauty and dignity of the ideal human spirit and form, one that is noble and free – which is sometimes captured best and made definitive in the abstract. Significantly, her paintings mediate the tensions that are symptomatic of contemporary art. The warm and luminescent color palette, the mysterious forms lead to unified sense of energies often lacking in post-modernism. Her paintings are less about thinking and more about intriguing energies from which they have arisen. Goli Mahallati graduated with a Bachelors from the University of Tehran in 1977 and with her Masters from AIC (American International College) in Massachusetts in 1979. She worked for several years studying for her Ph D at U Mass (University of Massachusetts) until she eventually moved to Southern California, where she now resides.
