Jurors Sam Harvey and Skye Weinglass

Harvey Preston Gallery specializes in contemporary ceramic art, sculpture, painting and works on paper by nationally and internationally recognized artists. With different monthly exhibits, the gallery showcases the work of established and emerging contemporary artists. “One of the things we do best at the gallery is bring innovative contemporary ceramic art to the Aspen art scene,” says owner Sam Harvey. “During the past 10 years of our gallery, ceramics has also become a hot topic in the larger contemporary art world. Our goal is to have works that make you think and that ask the viewer to participate in a dialogue with the artist.”

Skye Weinglass received her BFA from the University of San Diego where she 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 studied studio art in Florence, Italy and Guadalajara, Mexico.
