I love it when one of the artists I represent receives recognition for their outstanding art! This time the honor goes to Coni Grant. Coni is from Alamosa, Colorado. I’m so thrilled that she said yes to my asking her if I could represent her work here at my gallery. I first saw Coni’s paintings at a show I participated in several years ago called the Cuchara Hermosa Invitational. Her deft brushwork and intense, vibrant color caught my eye immediately. I just couldn’t let go of her work, it haunted my memory. Now here I am with my own gallery and Coni was one of the first 3 artists I asked to represent. I have sold several of her paintings now.
Coni’s award happened last night at the Millicent Rogers Museum in Taos, New Mexico. She won First Place/ Best of Artists Members in the Plein Air Painters New Mexico Annual Juried Exhibition. The show will be up until November 3rd. Fallis a wonderful time to visit northern New Mexico, so please stop by if you are going to be in the area. Congratulations to you Coni! I am sure this will be one of many more awards to come in your career!
