We are excited to announce that we now work in collaboration with Palladium Properties, a valley-based real estate firm committed to providing a collaborative experience with an emphasis on local philanthropy.
The Art Base curates exhibitions at Palladium’s new Willits location—364 Market Street. Exhibitions will rotate throughout the year and feature Roaring Fork Valley artists.
The current rotation features artist Newton Bartley.
“This body of work is based on special places in my life—many shared with my partner Eric, and inspired by trips to Fiji, Hawaii, and Sage Hill Ranch in Carbondale, Colorado. Our ranch and barn at Sage Hill Ranch made a deep impression on me, and it is their details, plus the incredible coral and colors of Wakaya, and the amazing sunsets of Kauai, that are represented.
I call it “wet work”—acrylic painting using multiple layers of color to achieve the depth, color, and texture that I desire.”
A principal at Palladium Properties, Bartley has been active in the hospitality and nonprofit sectors, spending 14 years in valley real estate. He and his husband Eric have been residents of the Roaring Fork Valley since 1988. They now spend their time in the valley and in Palm Springs.
Palladium Properties hours: Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm
