Clayton Lane Fine Art is a gallery in Cherry Creek that prides itself on an expansive collection of works from world-class artists, showing exclusive works and special editions from more than fifty well-established names. They specialize in realism, impressionism, and abstractionism. Their exhibitions cover many types of media including paintings, sculptures of various sizes, and intricate bronzes. Regardless of your art experience, Clayton Lane caters to all levels of art lovers and collectors.
Their latest exhibition is a solo show by artist Andre Desjardins. Desjardins is an accomplished artist originally from Canada. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in art from the University of Quebec and started a marketing firm after college. Fourteen years later, however, he became disenchanted with the marketing world and decided to pursue his dreams of becoming a full-time artist. He worked as a painter and sculptor, blending humanist and expressionist influences into a unique style he calls Visual Emotionism. Desjardins’ creations are part of collections throughout North America and Europe, including at the Monument National in Montreal and the ArtExpo in New York.
Also on display is a series of Gib Singleton’s work. Born in Missouri in 1935, Singleton first became enthralled with art at age 9, winning a blue ribbon at a state fair. By sixteen he had begun construction on a makeshift foundry. He would go on to become a giant in the sculpting world, specializing in bronze. True to his conservative upbringing, Singleton focused mostly on religious influences for his style of work, which he named Emotional Realism. His work was well-known worldwide and was included in numerous collections. His most notable piece (arguably) is a cross made to sit atop the crosier of Pope Jean Paul II. Another one of his crosses sits near the Shroud of Turin in Italy. Singleton continued to create western and devotional bronze sculptures up until his death in 2014.
Clayton Lane is also home to an extensive collection of works by Dr. Seuss. They have many of his books masterfully bronzed and artfully decorated with characters from the stories jumping off of the pages. They have a collection of illustration art depicting scenes from his books. There’s a series of unorthodox taxidermy, full of wildly fun, artistic imaginings. They even have some of his secret art and archive works rarely seen by the public.
