Art for the pure enjoyment of art is often why a person purchases a particular piece from Sorrel Sky Gallery. Then there are times when art serves a specific purpose. The oil paintings of local artist Sharon Abshagen transport the viewer away to the mountains and valleys, rivers and Aspen groves of our region. A physician from the East Coast visited Sorrel Sky Gallery over the weekend and selected a wonderful piece by Sharon for just that purpose; to transport his patients to another place far away. For many patients, art in the waiting or exam room can often lend a peaceful dimension to a stressful environment. We are honored to know that a vision of Durango’s surrounding majestic landscape will serve such a comforting purpose.
