Skye Gallery was founded in 2016 by Skye Weinglass, an Aspen native artist who received her BFA from the University of San Diego, having studied painting and printmaking with a focus in intaglio etching and woodcuts. After graduating, Skye apprenticed under a master printer, where she helped create hand bound artist books; each book being a collaboration of printmaking artwork and letter pressed poetry. She also completed studio fine art in Florence, Italy and in Guadalajara, Mexico.
After detecting a strong need for exhibition spaces for locals in her hometown, Skye decided to venture into her own gallery space including a diverse collective of emerging and established artists, both local and global. Skye Gallery opened its doors to forge a community oriented to showcase artistic creations and inspirations collected during flight.
The gallery has the objective of providing a well-curated space which serves as a platform to encourage self-expression, expand perception, spark inspiration, and provide wisdom and beauty. It is a pathway for gathering the community to honor and grow creativity through contemporary artistic practices.
