DURANGO, CO – Sorrel Sky Gallery welcomes new artist and real-life cowboy, Greg Kelsey. The young, up-and-coming bronze artist has won multiple awards for his enthralling scenes of cowboy and western life.
Kelsey lives and works on a ranch in southwest Colorado with his wife, daughter, and newborn son. Calf roping and herding surly bulls are the inspirations behind his classic representations of a legendary lifestyle. Kelsey truly lives the life he so exquisitely depicts.
"The story of the western life is worth being told in an authentic way," Kelsey says. "When you live it, you can show a perspective that’s not always seen from afar.”
The self-taught artist won the Gold Medal Sculpture Award and the Peoples’ Choice Award at the Bosque Art Competition, and the People’s Choice Award at the CM Russell Art Auction. In 2010 he commissioned two sculptures for the CM Russell Museum Art Auction.
Kelsey considers himself a storyteller and wants the viewer to feel the movement, action and mindset of his subjects. His action-packed sculptures evoke memories of the Wild West in all its fabled glory.
The addition of Kelsey fills a niche in Sorrel Sky Gallery’s diverse collection of contemporary and traditional western art. Sorrel Sky Gallery is located at 828 Main Ave. in historic downtown Durango, CO.
