BEAVER CREEK — Utah landscape artist Douglas Aagard will be painting, live, outside of the Paderewski Fine Art gallery in Beaver Creek. His work is part of The Evolving West exhibition currently on display and has been featured in Southwest Art Magazine's Best of the West.

Aagard has a unique outlook on his art.

"Instead of looking at something and just seeing it as pretty, I start breaking it down into elements. When I look at a subject, I focus on light, color and texture. … I want people to feel the moment, to feel the wonder, peace and joy that I feel when I see these scenes," he said.

Stop by and visit with Aagard during his artists residence at Paderewski Fine Art while he creates exquisite works on canvas.

Paderewski Fine Art is located in Beaver Creek, on the Plaza level of the Hyatt, across from the ice skating rink. Call 970-949-6036 or visit http://www.paderewski fineart.com for more information.
