It’s a great joy learning about new galleries around the country opening their doors for the first time, especially this new space in Denver, Colorado, owned by a nationally acclaimed artist.

The hip Berkeley neighborhood in Denver, Colorado, recently welcomed the addition of Westward Gallery and its renowned owner, Michelle Courier, and her business partner, Patti Klapish. The gallery’s name stems from the business partner’s move “Westward” from Michigan to Colorado. “Making the move to Denver and opening the gallery made sense,” explains Courier. “Denver is vibrant and emerging, and it’s getting the reputation as a fine-art hotbed.”

Located at 44th and Tennyson, the gallery currently features Courier’s magnetic landscape paintings, with more artist representations coming soon. Gallery director Jordan Villacruzes suggests, “We have a number of artists that are excited to display their work in Denver, alongside Michelle’s incredible paintings. By early spring, we hope to have a great variety of new works.”

Via the gallery’s press release: “In addition to the gallery, the new storefront location has a studio where Courier will continue to paint and build on her reputation as one of the country’s leading landscape artists. The ownership duo will also provide commercial and residential art consulting services.”
