Some teachers are flattered when students imitate their styles. Not me. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my students develop their own voices. In our new show “Sandra Kaplan And Friends,” you’ll see accomplished work that more than makes my point. And don’t be put off by the fact that you’ll be looking at student work. A number of these artists are represented by commercial galleries. I’ve selected works that I’m proud to curate, and which I wouldn’t hesitate to suggest that you add to your collection. Yes, the art will be for sale, and you’ll find paintings that should appeal to a variety of tastes. But if you just want to browse, join us anyway. I think you’ll be as intrigued as I was when I assembled this impressive sampling of work by current and former students.
In my classes at the Art Students League of Denver and other workshops, artists are encouraged to develop a personal, individualized approach to the world through their painting. Technical expertise is used in the service of vision. I believe that the stronger the exploration of a personal perspective becomes, the more interesting the resultant paintings will be.
